    2001 300xc-w

    i think this is a good deal. recently got myself a green stickered (very important, they are getting very scarce) '02 300mxc, put vforce3 reeds, re-jetted it, wowww, it has unbelievable power, will beat my red stickered '05 250sx...no question. tim

    Dumping the 250x

    was riding my '02 300MXC over the weekend, i had lots of fun with this bike, it's a real sreamer, had to be real careful. lost a few nuts and bolts, bought loctite the following day and made sure everything is tight. tim

    KTM 2 strokes past 2007 ?

    i agree, i have an '02 300 mxc(??old 380 head??), and it's a real monster compared to my '05 250 sx, it's real fast and real scary. tim

    Dumping the 250x

    i agree. i have both a 250sx and a 300mxc with vforce3 reeds love them both, but, when the 300 hits, it delivers unbelievable power, something i have not seen in the 250, even in the mid to top end. tim

    spark plug spark

    battery is brand new, fully charged. i pulled out the new plug again, i noticed that there's no spark in the plug itself, but there is a spark between the tip of the plug and a metal if the tip of the plug is close enough to a metal(ground?). is there a coil? tim

    convert 250 sx to 300 sx

    my '05 250 sx does not have a hit as hard as my 300, even from mid to the top. with the 300, when it hits from the mid to top, hold on ....wow, it could be from my reeds and jetting...but i never had this kind of power with the 250. i read that the '02 300 MXC had the gearing of a motocross bike but set up for a cross country????(MX-XC) tim

    convert 250 sx to 300 sx

    hello, i have a KTM '05 250 SX, with VFORCE reeds, this thing is a beast...but it has a red sticker and i want to ride all year round. So i decided to buy a green stickered bike...and i got an '02 300 MXC, placed the VFORCE3 reeds, re-jetted it to NOZ I at pos2, MJ 150 and IJ 40...wowwww this thing is a killer...my '05 250 SX is very tame compared to this one...just love the power. i am 160 lbs. and i can easily spin the tires at high speed in the 5th gear. Awesome...now this is a real bike. tim
