I see lots of nice protection items for this bike - Hyde Racing makes a combination pipe/skid plate. It is plastic, but looks real nice - do you have any experience with it?
Sounds like a lot of bike - I did survive owning a TM400 Cyclone and a 450 Maico. My last 2-stroke was a KX500. I like the light weight of a 2 stroke, and am looking forward to one with a modern suspension
Ive used the Hyde combo pipe gaurd/skidplate,works great and makes the bike slide over logs and rocks easier then anything Ive tried,helps a lot with bashes to the pipe from the side as well. The 300 only goes as fast as you make it but can wear you out on real tight trail if your going fast,lotso boost!
