    Alvin is one of the few who can just pick his bike up and carry it out. Can you repost that picture from a few years ago?

    I’ll definitely check the loop.

    I feel like it’s air screw related but I’ve yet to figure out a good method in all my year to figure out how to get that thing right. Seems like at the JD recommended setting it runs too lean to me.

    Not the float level though?
    Since it's slope-related I thought that was a good one.

    Only on down hill? Do you have clutch drag on flat surface? Lower you float hight just the slightest if onlynon down hill.

    It's only noticeable downhill as you are normally on the gas most other times. Clutch drag is there like a normal KTM but very minimal. I can attempt to raise the float height.

    Did I get my sense inverted. Would raise cut off sooner? I have to look at a drawing now.

    @Gordy do you think I can splat this? I've never done a real splat before... I think I can but I chicken out everytime I go there. I was just doing mock runs at it. It's about 4 feet tall.

    Big long sand hill climb.

    That's not flying, that's falling with style! Well bad style. Almost died both times I did it.

    @alvincullumyork. Cool pics!
    That kicker rock looks a little awkward to me. I’m sure that it would go on the trials bike but it looks to angled-up and short for the big bike. A short kicker like that makes timing the clutch dump more critical and hard to pull off.
    I would pass on that one. We always say, “that looks good and I’m sure it will be there when I’m better”.

    The mighty 300 was brought into service as a light adventure bike today. At first I was thinking "this thing is a terrible dualsport", but by the end of the day, I was celebrating it's glorious magical powers.

    Through packed snow and ice on FSR's, sunshine, two-track, and epic singletrack; my 300 was awesome IMG_20201128_164522.jpg 20201128_133148.jpg

    Anyone here that might run the JD kit in their 15 300 want to share what settings you ended up with? I'm at 5k ft and pretty varying temp, just want to get ride of the lean bog down low!

    Set your float, then try 38pj, NECJ or N4DJ #3, 165mj, 1.5 A/S
