GasGas Power sharp power delivery question
Posted 22 May 2012 - 12:52 PM
I loved the electric start and suspension on the GG and loved the way the engine could lug, however there was fine line between lugging the engine and it jumping on the powerband which made it difficult and tiring for me to control. I tried my best to short shift and keep the revs down to minimize this, but sometimes even when trying to navigate thru bumpy terrain, slight movements of the wrist caused by the bumps caused the GG to really take off and the most in-opportune times. I am considering buying an 2011/2012 version of the GG 300ec but want to know if this type of behavior is normal or can it be tuned to produce a more linear power, without the strong hit (for me anyway) until my skills build again. I really don't have the need to go all that fast, and like to pick my way thru terrain vs blasting thru it.
Thanks in advance for anyone's insight on this.

I think you'd be surprised at how fast you'd get used to the power delivery.

A 2T is very easy to tune in/out power delivery with simple jetting. The G2 is a huge help as well. It worked really good for me. The cool thing about it is you can go right back to stock 1/4 turn if you don't like it.

You get used to it. I was riding a 450 and 300 has a bunch more snap and a touchier throttle, but it chugs and lugs so much better the 450. I'm a novice rider but love the instant power for getting up and over obstacles. I also call it stall proof compared to the 4 stroke.
