I am very excited and had to share this! if anyone has noticed i have been asking all kinds of questions on here. this is because i purchased my 99 klx300 completly disassembled and in boxes. it had severe top end damage and i have never worked on an engine like this before.....actually only once on a go kart thats it. any who, thanks to all the great tips and wonderful people online here with their suggestions, my bike is now completly assembled, runs great, and i can ride it anytime. this thing is fantastic. its all stock, the air box lid is off, though i might put it back on untill it dries out around here.... but this bike is awesome! i mean i love it. ive had hopped up mx race bikes, woods bikes, the whole 9 yards and i think this is my favorite bike for everyday riding. thanks to everyone who helped me out! i love this bike! thanks again!
