Buying a new 300EXC

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I am considering getting either a 525EXC or 300EXC to use as a daily commuter, with motard setup, and a weekend bush/race (occasionally) bike. I would like opinions on what you folks think would be the best option... :thumbsup: Any tips on maint./rideability/performance/durability would be greatly appreciated! Also tips on setups!!! :ride: Thanks in advance...

A daily commute? Don't even consider the 300 2-stroke.

Ride them both, you'll see. It's apples and oranges.

Don't expect the transmission on a dirtbike to hold up unless its already a dual sport bike/Supermoto. A regular dirtbike transmission does not have the rubber cushion to prevent highway road shock back to the tranmission that dual sport bikes have.

Mate...go with the 525....Just purchased an 07 300EXC and it will not suit on road riding fulltime...or even part time....
