I decided it was time to get rid of the old yz450f for something more woods ready and a little more... well orange. I went to the local ktm dealer and took a look and found a few that I liked but only one that I really wanted. so here it is 2014 ktm 300 six days. so this is my first 2 stroke in years, so I asking for a little info here. what oils should I use in it gas and tranny? What should I do for the break in and such. do I just ride it like a four stroke? any info would be appreciated. I will post up a picture of it in a few min from my phone I don't have one on the computer yet. Yeah yeah I haven't rode a 2 stroke since I was basically 12 so its been a while.

Damn, I'm jealous. Gear oil in the trans and your favorite brand 2-stroke oil in the best non ethanol fuel you can find. Whatever KTM recommends.

That bike looks sick!

What he said ^ I use Castor 927 in my 200. Follow the manual.

Ride it like you stole it and be careful not to shit your pants with excitement.

Nice! I run full synthetic in my fuel and trans in all my pingers. I use Polaris Gold premix with whatever premium fuel (with ethanol if that is all that's available) with zero problems in my 05 Yz250 and 09 250XC. If it's jetted properly you can ride a KTM all day without ever getting on the pipe without fouling a plug.

Easy to ride, there packed full of torque and crazy fast, ride it like a 250 2 stroke or ride it like a 450x does not matter it will pull from bottom to top.

Use high quality 2 stroke oil! nothing wrong with synthetics. I us Rotella synthetic in the gearboxes.

If you have been away from 2 strokes for that long you going to be amazed at how they lug down and how wide the power band is now.

Might be? The stuff I run is almost clear, and I would bet most full synthetics are.

Thanks. I still haven't bought any oil top use yet but I think I'm either going with torco gp7 or amsoil.
