  1. Thanks for the tips, all. I ordered the JD kit for his bike. ~Mark
  2. Hi gang. I was just curious if someone could help me out. A friend of mine just bought an 07 300xcw in San Francisco, and brought it to his home in Truckee. We had planned on using the manual to jet the bike for the elevation difference, and when we pulled the carb, the needle that was in there was from the 07 200 jetting spec (NOZG). Anyhow, I was simply going to order the recommended needle (N8RH or N8RW) & jets from the manual and call it good, but if someone in a similar area with the same bike has something that works for them, I'd be interested to hear. The rider is an intermediate rider who most likely won't be racing...just trails & fire roads. Thanks for any help/insight. Mark

  4. There's an oil filter (a flat metal screen) that's behind the right side outer case cover...part #49065. You'll need to remove the clutch cover, clutch & right side engine cover to expose it. It is most likely caught there. This is sort of a pre-filter to keep large metal pieces from entering the oil system and creating mucho havoc. go here for parts diagram- www.kawasakiepc.com/SystemSearch_Frames.cfm?QuickSearch=1&SearchFor=KLX300%2DA7&SearchBy=Model&cGroupID=&CFID=5118563&CFTOKEN=12804485 then select "oil pump" for filter image, then go to "engine covers" for somewhat of a view of where the filter is located. They don't show the actual pre-filter in this image, but it goes right above the '14032A' part number...bottom, middle of right engine case.
  5. 80:1 Amsoil Sabre
  6. ...install the unit & run it....you'll forget all about those packages marked "yz450". Seriously, some of the 300 & the YZ450 components are identical. Same as a ktm200 & some of the honda 125 clutch components
  7. Hey gang. I'm looking to do a 24 hour race next year, and was wondering where some of them are. I'd like to stay on the East side of the MS, but may jump the river if the event sounds like a hoot. So....what do you know?
  8. Trade it in for AMSOIL Sabre, and run it 80:1. I've been running it in my '04 200 for 4 years (300+ hours), and my '08 300 for 2 years (250+ hours) with no probs. Burns super clean, and you save half the dough running it 80:1 instead any other oil at 40:1
  9. I've been running AMSOIL Sabre at 80:1 in my 04 200 & my 08 300 for two seasons w/o any problems. My buddy runs it 80:1 in his 94 Honda cr250 and 07 cr 125, and by other bud runs it as well in his 03 KTM 200.

  11. I believe they came on Suzuki DR350's....
  12. I bought an 08 300 xcwe off a buddy this winter...it has a new top end & an FMF SST pipe. I put the Rekluse Pro in it and added the LHRB kit. The Rekluse is set to the recommended setting for the 300..medium engagement RPM, harder engagement rate (27 balls, tall spring)...yellow spring. All I can say is...."Holy CRAP!!" This bike is knarly! It pulls beyond comparison when compared to my 04 200 exc. The ground was a bit frozen, so I was breakin loose quite a bit, but this bike has some serious snot. I was racing in the Vet B class (going to Vet A for 2009), but I know I would lose time on any of the straights to the bigger bikes (engine disp. is no concern in age classes). I loved the way I could throw my 200 around, but it just wasn't delivering the mail fast enough. I know there is a bit of a weight disadvantage with the 300, and I could feel it (a little more top heavy), but I think with the Rekluse & brake kit...I should be just fine. I'm anxious to put in some serious saddle time, and learn to ropes on my new wheels...I hope it's exactly what I've been looking for....and so far, all signs point to "yes, it is". I'm 5'10...165lbs...riding for 4 years. On another note...I have a new set of white plastics/graphics & stabilizer on the way...pics will be posted as soon as I get it finished up.
  13. Sure GR300..no problem...the offer is for any KLX'r that wants to put an FCR on their bike. My FCR originally came from Jerry (I am the second owner), and he was always more than willing to discuss my questions that I had concerning jetting & setup. Come to think of it, he actually mailed out some jets & the idle adjustment knob/cable without first getting payment from me. Their credit card machine was busted, he offered to mail the parts out, and he took my word that I would mail a check out to him. ...that reminds me...I need to mail that check!! HAHahah Just kidding But seriously, the guy is great...not many people in the biz anymore like Jerry Leighton/Four Stroke Works.
  14. I'd imagine only FIM Enduro guys would ride this tire religiously...most of the enduros around NY never check for DOT legal rubber. I have one (came with the bike)..but I didn't like it all that well. The FIM Enduro regulations limit the height of the knobs to 13mm...which really isn't that tall. The rubber was pretty hard....and the one time I raced this tire...I slid out over some flat rocks in the first mile while I was in the lead...I lost all confidence. You can watch the footage here... All in all...I suppose that the tire didn't perform all THAT bad...I did get the holeshot, and it rode pretty well in the pure dirt...I just prefer a stickier, knobbier tire. Who knows, it may wear like iron...I don't know cause I've only run mine for 2 1/2 hours
