    Another reason is probably because I would guess most Gas Gas owners are trials riders who have their own place here.

    Anyone got an opinion if a ec250/300 could make a decent dual sport bike? Or are they going to be a little too high strung for such duty?

    To supplement my street plated EC300...http://advrider.com/forums/showpost.php?p=20773565&postcount=28

    Based on jse comments, got the 2002 Pro chassis for the quicker steering and lighter magnesium engine cases. The chassis was only made for 1-year and is a odd mix of parts. Currently weighs just over 145 lbs. wet.

    Complete rebuild of engine top and bottom end. Installed S3 225cc kit, S3 Stars cylinder head with interchangeable compression insert (currently running high-compression insert), and GasGas UK flywheel weight.

    Revalved (2-stage compression and rebound) and changed spring rate on Sachs rear shock. Installed shock upside-down with 4mm preload.

    Installed Formula 'Factory' forks (adjustable compression, rebound, preload, and end-stroke) with GasGas anodized Ergal triple clamps. Installed ProTaper Hi bend SE handlebars with ProTaper Medium compound grips.

    Completed restoration of 1995 JT35. Approximately 170 lbs. with a 327cc Big-bore motor: tons of torque and will lug at idle, out climb most dirt bikes, and traverse a 6-foot vertical obstacle in the right hands.

    This bike may have an interesting history if built by Jon Stoodley AKA jse for Steve Darrow for the World Championship. Has cylinder head mods, and Keihin PWK carburetor.

    Mine is a 2002 250XC with the 2k2 ignition. Love it! Ohlins both sides sprung and valved by STM Suspension. I love to ride it in the more technical enduros out here. My usual race bike is a 2012 KTM 450SX-F set up for off road by EnduroSpec. If I know the race will be tight and gnarly, the GasGas gets the call every time. I only ride the KTM if I know its gonna be wide open.

    I got an 07 EC250 I'm starting to set up and I have a few quick questions.

    Firstly, anyone know if the fender/side panels from the later bikes fit without much modification, or does it require the later airbox and subframe?

    I was looking at the Force bash plate and pipe guard, but it only has them listed for the 08-11 models, I didn't think there was a major change between the 07 and 08 models, so does anyone know if it will still fit the 07?

    I got a few more questions, but can't remember them at the moment.:lol3
