No more red Japanese bike, on to the orange kool-aid!

Postby Mossy-Back » March 2nd, 2017, 12:49 pm

I sold my CRF450X last week, and today I brought home a '08 KTM 300 XC

I can't wait to rip around the woods on this thing!

Looks yummy. I have heard nothing but good things about that 300 smoker motor.
It looks perfectly outfitted and ready to rip.

It's got some nice extras, came with a carbon fiber pipe guard, radiator guards, various other guards, extra seat, extra springs (for 220 pound rider), suspension set up for 165 pound rider by SBD, and some other things. Top end was done 30-ish hours ago by the KTM dealer in Eugene.

The only things I need to be legal on the trails is a current OHV sticker and a spark arrested silencer (the factory one isn't).
