    I have limited experience, so my rating is about as biased as it gets sense this is only the second off-road bike I have owned.

    I got the bike 12/26/15. Not sure how many total hours or miles are on it. I'm at 24hr 2/26/16 on the last top end rebuild. The first ride on it, the motor felt great the way he set it up cause it has a fairly smooth predicable power band, the suspension needs some tweeking to get it the way I like it. It has a gnarly pipe, Q Stealth muffler, Factory connection suspension, shaved head, 300SX cdi, XCW head light and computer, oversized gas tank, trail tech exhaust flange protector, enduro engineering rad guards, hammehead sifter, enduro engineering bark busters.

    Bike deserves 5 atars because it is a mad machine. This thing "will rip your lungs out Jim". It is just bad fast and handles like a dream on a mildly twisty jeep road. Little slower when its tight or on open straightaways. Thats the MX transmission version of course so that is expected. The only reason I did not give 5 stars is that I spent the night out on it two weeks ago because it plain and simple did not have the technical riding setup I expected. I rode down a hellhole that I did not realize this bike would struggle so much coming back up. I had to fight it for three hours to get back up the terrain. This is minor and I could choose to set it up closer to my preferences by one or all of the following. BIGGER FUEL TANK, HEAVIER FLYWHEEL, LOWER FINAL DRIVE, TRIALS REAR TIRE. Short of this bike missing my expectations as a good technical bike. This has high speed semi technical written all over it and im sure trophy's have and will continue to prove that. If you want a technical bike, you need to look at the XC-W version. Or the Ktm Freeride. Or go back in history as I have chosen to do and find a 90's model Yamaha WR250Z. Either way you'll be happy. PS I have made a street legal conversion on this bike. Basic KTM headlight is not enough light for high speed. It okay for tight stuff though. Has a blind spot at 50' feet that proves deadly on a grromed road.

    KTM 300 XC (2014)


    Super light feeling Loads of power down low yet very manageable. Absolutley no issues ,except for the clutch drag early in its life I posted about. Goes through rear tires fast. Always change the oil before turning dark. Basically every 10 hours. Factory connection suspension for my weight is a must and the response is perfect for how I use the bike. The hydraulic clutch is amazing! Did a top end rebuild at 105hours, Used Amsoil interceptor oil 50:1 all its life, I will post pics of this. Piston was almost perfect from new. As long as you follow the book on maintenance this thing I'm convinced will run strong forever. Shifter still feels rock solid as it did day one, So smooth and such a positive shift into gear. Brakes are flawless! Fast enduro tracking is a blast with this bike. Sounds it makes are amazing as well. One thing i am truly amazed with is the lugging power, I can't believe how many times I thought for sure it was going to kill, but nope it just freight trains up or through!?

    Awesome bike. I love it!!
  16. Actually I rode two. I've ridden one before around a parking lot at idle, but I had the chance of riding these two on stuff I ride everyday. Both bikes were virtually identical suspension and cassis setup, one owned by a Pro and the other by a top Expert. The Experts 300 had a Rekluse, Lectron carb and Scotts. The Pros had the stock clutch and with the stock Mikuni... Both ran same levers, same suspension settings (stock), slightly different bars, same springs and sag and same front tires with mousses, but different rears tires. For the most part they were the same and had no radical changes... I think it was my expectations were set so high, that I was somewhat disappointed. -The weight, the bikes didn't feel particularly light. Granted they felt lighter then compared to my 250FX, but while in motion not mind blowing light. While riding, they felt like almost every other 300 I've owned or ridden. They don't transfer side to side any better then the old 250FX either... -Suspension was pretty dam good. One had a harsh midstroke but it also had 75hrs on the forks. The forks follow the ground awesome. Combined with a big 90/100 front and the bikes were so nice. They gripped amazingly well on the front end. With a revalved, I could have these forks equal to my Yamaha, maybe better because I could try different spring rates near instantly. The shock felt great, no better or worse then anything I've ridden. -The frame felt so much more forgiving then the Yamaha. Seemed better on big sharp hits -The bike feels raked out, long and low. My 250FX feels short and steep, which is probably why it doesn't feel any heavier in motion. I would expect the bikes to feel more stable too but I didn't feel that was the case -The motors, the Lectron was the ticket... The Lectron made the motor so dam crispy. It was impossible to know, but believe me when I say it, there is NO vibration!!! I could believe how much my Yamaha vibrated until I jumped on it after the KTMs. And no, my Yamaha is not known to vibrate. Those 300s, if you had ear plugs in, you would never know it was running, it was that smooth.... The motors themselves felt a little doggish off idle, a product of me being on EFI makes it that way, not the bike, just technology. I couldn't stall the Pros bike. I could ride a gear high and never touched the clutch and never stall. When I did get the bikes going, the power was strong, more then I've been used to in years since owning the 450... Fit, feel, finish? All KTM, all quality. Brakes, clutch, etc etc have all felt the same and the 17 is no different. Would I buy one, no. I really had extremely high expectations that I didn't feel the 17 met... Chayse's 3rd attempt at this hill (and this guy is Pro?). I went 2/2 on the 250FX and razzed him about it since then...
  17. So, I'm beginning to look for a new bike to suit me. Background, I'm a soon to be college grad finishing up an engineering degree at the Ohio State University. I will be moving back to the Cleveland Ohio area in December. I am 6 feet tall and about 220 lbs. I currently have a prestine 2006 RMZ 450 with about 35 hours on it, a 2005 crf250r very clean with about 100 hours on it, and a 1997 Scorpa 294 works trials bike. I obviously don't have time for all of them, the crf needs a valve adjustment and the other two are ready to go. I figure I can get at minimum about $2000 for the RMZ, $1500 for the crf and $1500 for the trials bike. Leaving me about $5000 for a single bike. I have been at school a lot and very little time to ride and a couple buddies just sold their bikes to buy quads. That being said, I feel we will have some time to ride in western pa mostly majestic trails or ANF. For those who don't know it's woods riding that is middle speeds on ATV trails (10-40 mph). I'm a pretty high level recreational rider and have ran with some fast B off-road riders before. I'm not interested in an ATV but I'm looking at trying to either get a fuel injected 450. I like the Honda a lot and I like the value, and with a couple mods I think it would work well. Including some cooling mods of some kind hand guards and possible a set of rims with a 18" rear. Then I started watching some videos and saw that there are many that like the KTM 300xc. Said it's one of the best off-road bikes, including electric start. I've had a cr125 when I was younger and I did not like having to mix gas with my dad riding a crf230 he did not. I like the maintenance of the two stroke. So my dilemma is a crf450r 2009-2013 with FI (none with more than 20 hours) for between 3500 and 4500. Or a KTM which I would prefer the newer ones and especially like the orange frame which I believe is 2015. These seem much more rare and expensive and none with low hours like the Honda. Any opinions would be appreciated.
  18. I just picked up my new 2017 Husqvarna TX 300. This bike has the worst out of the box jetting in the history of motorcycles. I love the forks, shock, turning and overall handling. But the Mikuni is a disgrace. Husqvarna should have budgeted the extra cost of the Keihin and not put this tuning disaster on the back of consumers that paid almost $10k for a dirtbike. I have a 2006 CR 250 with a Mikuni TMX 38 that runs great with race (sonoco 110) gas. It did require some fiddling, but I did get it to work right. The husqvarna on the other hand has been impossible. The TX300 is having jetting issues with low speed operation. (extremely sensitive about humidity and air temp) Poor engine response and feels like will foul plugs if throttle is not blipped constantly. Current setting. 35 pilot 6BFY43-73 needle (2nd position from top or droppedone position). Update I installed the optional 68FY43-73 needle (2nd notch down) and re-adjusted the air screw. It made a incremental improvement. The 43-73 starts the taper lower on the needle so it the equivalent of a half notch leaner from the 44-73. Air screw out 2 turns (I adjusted and optimized air screw at approx 1200 rpm). Spoke with Sudco and they are being inundated with calls about this Mikuni TMX 38 carb. It's got issues. The light at the end of the tunnel is that JD Jetting (I spoke with them yesterday as well) is working on a new needle, nozzle and pilot jet that will hopefully fix the slow speed issues. They have 5 needles on the CAD system and are machining them ASAP. The alternative is to purchase a Keihin (Kay heen) carb from a 2016 KTM. Note to self, don't go ride your 2006 CR 250 after you purchased a new TX300 for almost $10,000. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Rob
  19. Got it home and started adding some mods to it. So far; dampener, rad guards, rear shark fin, pipe guard & flange, and skid plate. I've got a Q stealth silencer and a ee seat on order. More to come
  20. This thread is for the 2013 model 300cc two strokes, not other years and models. In the past the 300's have varied in a number of ways: different frames, different forks, "old plastic", with and without e-start etc. It seems that KTM is making the two bikes more similar, which might make it a bit harder to choose which one to get. I've checked out the stats on the KTM Web Site (which is sometimes incorrect), but still probably the best we have to go on: (I got the internal gearing off dealer site) component XC XC-W sec drive gearing 14-50 13-50 1st 15:31 14:32 2nd 16:25 16:26 3rd 20:25 20:25 4th 22:23 22:23 5th 25:22 25:22 6th 26:20 26:20 Weight 229 Fork WP Suspension Up Side Down 4860 MXMA CC same Shock WP Suspension 5018 BAVP DCC same rear travel 12.48 13.19 Seat Height 39.6 37.8 Tank Capacity 3.04 2.6 Starting elec.+ kick elec + kick other number plate enduro light Price 8,299 8,299. So, again, assuming this is right the only differences are the gearing, the tanks, and the rear end height. I'll post the pictures below if I can figure out how, but they look almost identical. As for the wide-ratio tranny on the W, it's interesting. If you swapped the 14t sproket for a 13t on the XC your final gears in 3,4,5 and 6 would be identical. The only difference is the slightly lower 1st and 2nd, with a bigger 2nd to 3rd gap. (The criticism of the W is often 'gappiness'.) Is the seat height and travel difference the result of the XC having a linkage? SO, I'll turn it over to the gurus. Hard to see that there is much in it at this point. I'm surprised they continue to offer both, really.
  21. I haven’t seen a lot of info on Mods for the 2017 KTM 300 XC, so here is what I have done to my bike. I got my bike about 2 1/2 months ago. I took it out for some break in rides and it ran terrible. I mean horrible. It was so rich it struggled everywhere I went. I read everything I could find on the Mikuni and realized it was a problem. JD didn’t have a jet kit out yet, but I found info on the Lectron carb that was quite encouraging. You shouldn’t have to buy a carb for a $9,400 bike, but I decided to do just that. The Lectron was supposed to fix my jetting issues, get me better fuel economy and self adjust as I change altitude. While I was waiting for the new Carb, I used the supplied jets and found a combo that ran fair. Not good. I started putting some time on the bike and quickly got confident in the suspension. It is much better than my old 2014 KTM 450 XC suspension was after I spent $900 on its suspension. While I felt like my $900 was well spent and the 4CS suspension was much better than stock, it fell far short of the new air fork on my 300xc. I am much faster in the whoops on the new 300 than I was on my 2014 450xc. I race expert in the desert and do pretty good, just for reference. Back to the Mikuni. I got the bike jetted so it ran decently (not great) I did a test loop. I ran the bike hard. It was 25 miles of sand washes, sand single track and sand whoops It was a tight technical loop. I measured everything very close, (I use Strava). I averaged 24 MPH and 1.75 gallons of gas with the mikuni carb. I was a little bummed because that isn't good enough MPG to finish some of my race loops with the stock tank. Then I did the same loop again with the Lectron carb. I averaged 25.7 MPH and used 1.25 gallons of gas. Faster less gas Yea! I had heard that the Lecton used less gas. I'm a believer. The Lectron fixed my jetting, and gave me much better fuel economy. One other benefit of the Lectron is that they recommend running 100:1 amsoil Saber premix. I run the amsoil, but at 80:1. I’m chicken to run 100:1. I put one of the 1st Lectrons on a 2017 and had to do a little adjusting to mine, but it was easy. I believe they have them dialed in for the 2017s now just plug and play. Read More Lectron Carburetor Reviews To race I need a spark arrester. I went with the EE enduro engineering end cap. There maybe a better set up, but when I got it FMF didn’t have anything out yet and I had read that KTM pipe and silencer was pretty good. I stayed with stock and have a removable spark arrester. Runs great, I like it I put a plastic skid plate on. I got a AXP from England. It was the only one I could find and I wanted plastic. They are quitter, allow the bike to flex properly and slide over rocks. I like aceribis, but they didn’t have one yet. Luckily my spare wheel set for my old 450 fits the new bike with the addition of new front wheel spacers. I believe I got mine from Slaven Racing. I read a lot of good reports on having the head on the 300’s machined or replaced with a higher compression head. Non were available for the 2017s yet so I called Slaven’s racing and ask them about milling my head. They said they had done some and for $55 I could mod my head. I gave them my elevation and had it done. I got it back after about 10 days. I think you can get it done faster, but I’m from a small town and had some shipping issues on my end. The motor is stonger on the the bottom and mid. The power hits right now to. For $55 it’s a great mod. They will have a head out soon that will have 2 inserts, one for low elevation and one for high elevation. My head is set for low elevation. It runs great on pump gas and will also work better than stock at high elevation, just not as good as the high elevation head at high elevation. The high elevation head will ping at low elevation without race gas. I ride at 1700’ so the low elevation head is best for me. I put Bullet Proof Designs Radiator guard on. They are guaranteed for life and very light. Only just slightly heavier than the plastic ones they replace. I feel confident the radiator can take a hit now and not be damaged. We have a big hill in Mesquite, NV where I ride. Its very big and very steep. 3rd or 4th gear pinned to have a chance at climbing it. I was a little less than 50% on my 450, but this light weight has but to the top 9 out of 10 tries. And that was before the head work was done. I’m very happy to be back on a 2 stroke. The counterbalancer makes the motor so smooth it feel almost electric. I’m not getting anything from Lectron or Slaven racing, but I highly recommend them for 300s. They have done testing on the 2017 300’s and have been very helpful.

    **2018 KTM 300 XC** (TT is behind on their model year options) Amazing quality and performance. Best bike I've ever owned just in the short time I've had it. The engine felt a little meh with the stock Mikuni carb, but now it breathes fire with the 38mm Keihen. It's gonna be hard to go back to riding a big bore 2 stroke without a counterbalancer. When was the last time the suspension was a strong suit on a katoom?!? Let's just say I can no longer use the SSS argument to defend my Yamaha... Ktm has raised the bar and changed the game with this one!
