But do I have to worry about the hours? How often do you guys change piston? right now the ODO says 2100 km or about 1300 miles and the hour meter says 57.7.. Cold it started after 3 kicks with the choke on and there is a lot of compression.. Oh yea and one more, are there any permanent fix for the e-start not engageing right? as I understood the fly-out wheels on these are no good..

And do the vent mod and oil mod..

Personally, I would just throw in a new top end to have a ZERO start point. Its cheap to do. Having said that, there is still lots of life left (unless the previous owner "lived" riding the pipe). Some people are proactive (replace before needed) and some are reactive (wait till it breaks or needs it). Decide what type your are and go from there.
... he sells rebuild kits for the e-starters for $78. The wet mod volume of oil is a bit less than indicated on the video. Just search wet mod.
PS ... he is also the guy who made those videos on the wet mod. You can basically buy everything you need (complete top end) from Jeff all in one stop.

Total rebuild seems overkill . . . if it feels tired, put a new top end in it, give it a good once over, clean the PV, carb, etc and ride the hell out of it.

57 hours is nothing on a 300... Just GO' RIDE
I have removed my e-start, on my 2011 - 300 EXC:
The speedo... Could be the sensor, or the magnet that's missing. Easy fix.
