  1. Any noticeable increase in vibration. Doesn't the kit come with aluminum pieces that replace the rubber bushings that come stock on the 300 xc?
  2. Is the 1 inch increase in bar height a big deal? It was nice on my 500 exc, but the bars on the 300 seem to be higher as is.
  3. It's clutch material. This was your first Trans oil change on a brand new bike! Does it run fine? Does the transmission work properly? Just ride it and have fun.๐Ÿ‘
  4. How do you like that setup? Did you consider the solid sub mount?
  5. I like having it on there for the piece of mind from the hidden rocks and roots. It sucks that just the mount is so expensive. I didn't think I would have a hard time selling the one off my 500 but no takers yet.
  6. Wow, I talked to Scott's a few weeks ago and they were out of them then ! Are you leaning towards the solid sub mount for your 300?
  7. Are you using the BRP solid sub mount for the Scott's damper, or is it a different setup?
  8. I was wandering if anybody is running a Scott's stabilizer with the sub mount on a 2017 or 2018 300? If so, are you using the rubber mounted submount or the solid? I was using the rubber sub mount on my 2014 500 exc and it did help with vibration ( that bike vibrated a lot more than my 300 xc). If I ever sell the mount from the 500, I'm not sure if it is necessary to spend the extra money for another rubber sub mount for the 300. Any thoughts? Thanks
  9. Hi, I have a 18 300xc with about 5 hours on it. Everything is stock just the way it was when I bought it. Jetting doesn't seem too bad, maybe rich at low rpm? Has anyone found a setup that works better with the extra needle and jets that come with the bike? 800 - 1500 ft. 60 - 80 deg. F 60:1
  10. First ride yesterday. Unbelievable!! I realize now that I was torturing myself on the 4 stroke. I rode the bike exactly as it was delivered and it performed better than I could of imagined. I'm not an expert by any means, but the suspension felt really good to me. The engine runs strong, the idle began to hang a little bit after I got a couple hours on it so I will need to do some carb tuning. I did run some tight single track that normally exhausted me on the 4 stroke. The 300 xc was just so much easier to ride In every way. Having never ridden an xc w, I can't compare the two, but the gearing on the xc seems plenty low enough for the toughest trails that I ride. I am totally happy with my decision to get the 300 xc.๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘
  11. Thanks guys. First ride tomorrow, cant wait!
  12. Just picked my 2018 300 xc. Traded in the fuel injected 4 stroke for a carburated 2 stroke. Can't wait to ride on Saturday!๐Ÿ˜€ I haven't rode a 2stroke in about 23 years, but looking forward to it. ๐Ÿ˜ฒ๐Ÿ˜ฒ๐Ÿ˜ฒ
  13. Did you sell one for that price?
  14. I am wanting to sell mine, it has 1450 miles and about 83 hrs. I don't want to give it away, but I'd like to move it quickly.
  15. Hi, I was wandering if anybody has recently bought or sold a 2014 or 2015 500 exc? I'm trying to get an idea as to what they worth presently. Thanks for any help.
