As Cuffie has mentioned be prepared to spend money and stuffing around to make the bike trail friendly, the FE on the other hand, sheís ready to go, this is only my way of thinking.
Good luck with your choice

Not sure if this is relevant for the current 4 strokes, but on my 570 I had similar issues. First I got a remap to try sort it, improved a little but not much. Then I tweaked the TPS and upped the idle slightly, massive improvement.

You do need to ride differently though to try avoid the flame out. Gotta work that clutch a bit more in the single.

Im looking for a new battery for my 18 300exc as I keep running the stock battery flat on hard enduro type rides with a lot of fan running and slow riding, was looking at the ssb 220cca one or the antigravity ag-801, the ssb is a bit cheaper but the antigravity has slightly higher capacity (4ah vs 5ah) just sick of running the battery flat and want something that I donít have to worry about. Any of you guys do tough hard enduro type stuff with this battery and ever run it flat?

when my lithium crapped itself, I couldnt even kick start the excf 350...it started on jumper leads but once they came off the bike died.
put a new battery in and away I went...

do you think the bike requires at least a small charge in the battery to kick start...maybe so the fuel injection works?

100% yes, the battery needs to have a little bit of life in it to kick the fuel pump over. Ktm know this thatís why they drop the kicker on the 4ts years ago. Also mate sure your battery is good and carry little jumper leads or a jump pack.
