Newbie KLX owner, need suggestions...

Recommended Posts

Hello all, I just purchased an '07 300R and I'm ready to make it better. I have read many posts and have a few questions.

Will the FSW Header pipe work on a '07? I only see it listed up to '06.

Are the gains worth it to replace the stock muffler with an aftermarket or just keep the stock muffler and modify it?

I noticed the PlanetKLX site is down, anyone have any other links or info on the "Freebie Mods" to get me started?

Thanks again, can't wait to hit the trails. :confused:

It should work. No REAL changes to the KLX300 in years.

Keep the stock muffler and use the saved $$ for the suspension.

Ride on

Yes, the FSW will fit your 300 just installed one on my 07. Remove the butt plug on the stock muffler. remove air box lid, install the dynojet stage two jet kit. I jetted mine for above 6000 ft. I am thinking of gearing it to a 12 tooth on the front. do alot of slow trail riding. good luck Go Green

The air box really helps. Pull out the "restrictor" in the cranks case vent tube. There is a little piece of plastic in there that is one of the Planet KLX free mods. Then I put a FMF Q2 pipe on and I have a Mikuni carb on the way. The shocks springs are soft all the way around...They are on the way too..

The piston moving up and down displaces air which has to pass through the orifice. Removing it lets it do so easier.

The single best mod (including a 340 and 331 big bore) that I ever did to my KLX was the FCR carb. Actually, that was about equal to getting the suspension professionally done. The FCR makes the KLX a different (read: muuuuch better & more fun) bike.

That is one of the free mods from Planet KLX. I am not sure hw to explain what it does but, the guy I ride with says it helps the engine vacuum? Or pressure. It is similar to replacing the crankcase tube which is also a free mod from Planet KLX.

Have fun...

      Hello friends, 
      I have seen some discussion about DRZ400 (DRZ400S, etc) vs whatever other bike, when it comes to power. My riding buddy and I threw down some good old drag races this morning on the way back home after some adventure in the forest. I own/ride a 2002 KLX300R. We ran two heats, one on gravel, then one one asphalt. Who do you think won? See below:

      Hello friends, 
      I recently put a new Kenda Trakmaster II rear tire on my KLX300R. I'm loving the improved grip and overall performance. Here's a little video I put together of the tire in action...

      Hello friends, 
      Just thought I'd share a short summary video of a 154-mile adventure ride my buddy and I did last week. Northeastern AZ has an unbelievable amount of rural trail/road to explore. My KLX300R averaged 71.5 MPG on this ride.
