Let's see- "countless"? How many total 300's did KTM import into the states?
So, countless is 100? 200? Sounds like an epidemic.
So lugging a motor at low RPM is worse for it than 14,000 RPM constant?
I guess I am a big fat, tall guy. I like the 300-then again, I live a high altitudes.
Guess you better tell Slavens to check his manhood.
I like this thread. It is getting exciting!

I'm a believer in having a motor for what you need it for .. at my local KTM shop I'm told they have to fix countless 300's not because they are bad motors but because the guys that ride them lug the crap out of them in much higher gears needed ..(I think that might be small man syndrome needing the big 300)
if you want a street plate might need to find an older model with the title on it .. or try your luck at the DMV and bat your eyes at the girl working the counter and see if she or he whatever your into .. will street plate it for you ..
