yz250/ v ktm300 gasr300 wr300

Would a new model YZ250 with major suspension work and gear box work incorporating the WR gearbox cut the bacon with the current crop of 300 enduros. Forgetting the obvious electric start and fuel range, what would be your opinion. Cheers Kurty. PS rec reg to road reg not an issue.

revalve the suspension , pipe , rad valve and you will slay the 300's even if you left it stock you could beat them if you can ride . you would get beter fuel range than them too . I can get 100 km out of my 08 kx 8.2l tank . MX 2T's have way more poke than the 300's just not the top end

King Kirk was riding one in the Qld enduro sries up til this year, some americans think they are the pick of the bunch, me personally I'd pretty sure the Husky300 is a dark Horse, but what the hell, put the top two gears out of the WR450 in a have fun.
Spares are dirt cheap, has heaps going for it, and no drawbacks, but as I must say I'm a little biased towards them.

why would you buy a mx bike only to put and enduro gear box in it? Doesnt that just defeat the purpose of buying an mx bike espically how your gonna tune the suspension for bush? Why not just buy a enduro???

thats just my opinion, and im just curious as to why you would do that?

Kirty for $ 200.00 you can modifier the GG 300 to smoke a 250MX bike.
Fit base gaskets so at BDC the piston sit perfectly at the base of the exhaust port, cut the cylinder haed squish to 1.1 mm and cc the head to 28ccm, F needle 45 piliot and 192 main your done. For the test we lined up a 07 RM 250 (the YZ might be faster?) 6 runs rider swaps and the GG was pulling a bike length ever gear, by 5 gear the GG was gone.

Yer i don't know how quick the RM is... my 250SX used to pull several bike lengths on the 07 RM as well.

But the RM has the best bottom end and most fun power of any 2 banger i've ridden.

It's still an MX'er though.

my 300 get's 140 kays from a tank with reserve, doubt you'll outride me on your pissy 8.2 liters!

mx boxes are awesome though, if i could be *@#&*@#&*@#&*@#&ed putting a 250SX gearset in my 300 it would make it so much more fun to ride, drop ten kg off of it (113 with a full tank rady to go stock) and it's almost perfect.
