    WR450 to 300exc

    I did it 2 years ago and never looked back. The 300 has plenty of torque and for single track there is no better bike.
  3. I was thinking about swithing the wheels of my 300 to my lc4 for some semi adventure riding. The 300 is an 03 the lc4 supermoto is an 01 will the wheels fit?

    Erie, Colorado

    There is a motorsports complex in Erie with a supercross style track, a motorcross track and an open riding area. It will certainly tide you over until the snow melts. You can also ride Berthod or the Pawnee Grasslands this time of year.

    Grand Junction/Fruita/Moab altitudes and temps

    Anybody going to Rabbit Valley? That place is pretty fun. If you have enough fuel you can ride to moab on the Kokapelli trail.

    300mxc at the track

    I have been riding at the track lately and have noticed that it takes much more speed to clear jumps than those with motocross bikes. I don't want to change springs but I was thinking that backing off on the rebound dampening would give more lift. I don't want to back of the shock to much. I hate it when I just about go over the handlebars with too much rear rebound kick. Any ideas?
  12. I can only speak from my limited experience. I have owned a 450 CRF and a KLX 300. KTM truly has a niche market that appeals to those that really like woods riding. The 2stroke 300 is really appealing to those that like a light weight woods machine. I truly believe that there is no 4 stroke bike that competes with it. It's fast and plenty tourqey and far exceeds the maneuverability of the big bore machines. The 300 is so much fun and is much more flickable that the 4 strokes that I have owned. 4 stroke woods bikes are really good but they are sub par to the 2 strokes.
  13. The feedback that I have read on KTM talk is that it is something you will notice before it fails. Things like more engine noise. I don't think it will be a catastropic failure if you pay attention to the motor sounds. If it gets noisy, replace it.

    PV screw in or out?

    My experience withe a 300 mxc is that for trail riding delaying the powerband hit makes a more trail freindly ride that utilizes the low end torque of the bigger bores. At the track, I will usually open it up and back of the rebound dampening as well for more lift on the jumps.

    Can't go wrong with the KTM 2 strokes they definitely lead the pack in this arena
