Can you explain what you are saying? re: 'The 250 already has in effect what results from doing the mod on the 300.'
I'm saying the 1" crank vent hose to the airbox is restricted internally by a plug which only has a 1/8" hole in it. This in effect causes a crankcase pressure & vacumm because it can't breath fast enough at higher rpm. Remove the plug and voila... it revs freer.
