I bought an uber clean/low hour 2001 EC300 about a year ago to use as my singletrack/rock monster and have loved it thus far. The suspension may not be as nice as my newer Honda's and KTM but the rest of the bike is IMO on par with any modern 2T for my use.

Here is a crappy cell phone pic loaded down with full camp gear for my Dusy-Ershim trail ride last year:

I have a 2005 Gas Gas 300 with Ohlins front and rear. It's that good an enduro moto that I haven't even wanted to trade up for a new model each year.

It's in it's 7th year and all I've done in that time is put in is 3 sets of rings...two pistons...one set of crankshaft bearings (as of a couple of months ago) and a service kit for the Ohlins forks....and the usual tyres and stuff like that...I ride it hard and because it's 'old' I don't care about it at all....(I do of course keep it serviced well)That's why I have every confidence in riding it all day 100kms plus out in the forest trails knowing it will run well...

I ride enduro's and even beach races and use it about twice each Sunday and Monday riding forest trails here also.

It refuses to lie down and for forest riding it is so good...heaps of low end grunt and light.

After all my years riding......there's only two moto's I'd buy again and that's an XR650R and another Gas Gas 300EC.

Simples!!!

Thats chilly to say the least. I know it sounds pretty sad but i have know idea what a smart carb is .

Weather here in SC has been good but with the warmer weather and spring creeping up i have been at the mercy of my stand up jet ski and getting it ready...fiberglass work!

That is an extremely sweet "Gasser"! It even looked great in the before pictures! did you have any problem putting on your scorpion skid plate? Mine is an 07 ec300 (i believe) and it was an absolute nightmare.
