To 300EXC or 525EXC... Help??!!!??

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...

525 would be a much better choice than the 300 if you truely plan on riding it on the street/commuting. For just dirt work, the 300 rules........

The 525 excels at street work. Get it. Make sure your SM rear wheel has a cush hub - it's required with sticky street rubber.

Go to the folks at KTMTalk.com for more info. If you aren't a member, join - there are lots of benfits.

It depends on far your commute is....if it's just a few blocks with no high speed stuff, the 300 will serve you well. If you have over 5 miles of hiway, the 525 will be much better.
