2006 Klx300?

Recommended Posts

do the 2006 models have problems with the shift star and idler gear or have they been fixed? never owned a klx300 and was thinking of picking one up.

Around '02 they retimed the ACR which takes some load off the idler when starting. Around '03 they changed the shaft and gear, increasing the I.D. of the bushing. They haven't changed the shift star but that's an easy fix if you need it. I haven't on my '94.

Shift star is not fixed.. but you can fix that easy. The ACR fix is in and solves the idler gear problem. I have a KLX300 and bought it to DS it and later found out I couldn't. You make want to check out the street legal KLX250S if you think you may ever want to dual sport... plus it opens up a lot more riding in any state of national forest if you have a tag. Just a thought.
