Nice to have a working Estart in terrain like this. My 300 is a tad more stall prone with desert gearing (14/48) but is amazingly versatile. GREAT bike!
Here's one form today with a little faster terrain:

Sounds like the problems I had with my 09. I replaced the stock battery with a 7 series and that fixed everything.

My '08 300 XCW requires regular starter maintenance. Fortunately, I have never had a failure and all the starter components are OEM original...and it works perfectly.
I clean the starter motor, and lubricate the gears, etc. everytime I wash the bike (which is after every ride session). I've done it so many times now, it's routine. I hardly think about it anymore.
I use Belray waterproof grease on the gears. I think it provides excellent lubrication and protects from moisture better than white lithium. You have to clean out the pasty white assembly lube crap they put in at the factory.

Have you tried cleaning and lube yet? The Slavens mod works really well with very little maintance. I had a 250 that would start cold the 300 never. After more time on the 300 it will start eaiser. The Slavens is the way to go a lot cheaper too than pulling the starter out. Just my 2 cents.

Thanks for the info, but no I haven't tried any mods or even looked inside. A new side cover is on the way. When I bought the bike, I was on the fence between an sx or an xc so removing the starter and battery will bring it one step closer. The bike never stalls and feels heavy compared to my 08 yz 250f so I'm hoping that you can feel the weight savings. With the battery so far from the center of gravity, maybe removing it will help.
