Best year model Gas Gas EC

When looking for a used Gas Gas in the $2,500 range, are some years and models better or worse than others. Which ones to avoid? Will consider the EC200, 250,or 300 since the weights and seat heights are all about the same. Low weight, low seat height, handle like a trials bike in the rough stuff are important. Raw horsepower is not that important, although the bottom end pull like my DR350 is great. I have noticed the Gas Gas EC`s don`t get too many bids on e-bay. The sellers usually ask top dollar, but bidders don`t participate much. Whats with this? thanks!

Theres a guy on KTM talk selling a 2004 EC200 for $3250. Good buy and I think he is in your area...

I don't know what years are the best, but I think they pretty much get better every year. Check out and read some of those threads as well.

You should be able to grab an '02/03 300 if not, stick with the 300 if possible.

The Gas Gas is a great bike, go with the 300 - they are quite reliable and handle great, the bad thing is the poor resale value, you can get a great deal on a great bike. Smackover will have everything you need...

      Here are some pics of me on my new to me 2002 EC250. I love it. After i get the suspesion re-valved, LTR jetting, LTR power vlave cover, new skid plate, rad gaurds, new top end, plastics and some other odds and ends it should be awsome.

      Looks like to me the GasGas talk out numbers any "exotic" bike in this section. Maybe it's due for it's own page? They aren't to "exotic" anymore.
      Any thoughts?

      hi, i just bought a 2013 gas gas xc300 e with 20 hours on it. the owner before me pulled the electric start off and the headlight and taillight wiring. in the process of hooking the electric start and lights back up i have confused myself and am wondering if anyone has an easy to follow diagram or some good pictures of the wiring on their bike. im not very good at following wiring diagram and the one on the gas gas website in my opinion sucks. any help on this would be very much appreciated. 
      thank you

      Where can I but new blue or blue and white plastics for a 2002 EC300? I found some red, white, and yellow, but no blue. How about factory style graphics? I heard that certain years of KX plastic may be interchangeable, but which year and model ( can you even buy blue KX plastic?)? Thanks. -Todd
