So ,dan does your 300 mxc get no love now? Which bike do you ride more? Which bike has more power the 300 or the 450? I was in love with my wr 400 until I realize the short comings, or at least realized what I really want( for the time being) I wan't all that impress with the 04 power wise over my 99 with same mods. The 04 was lighter and slimer feeling but not much the 99 had more bottom end, the 04 took a minute to get the revs up. I am on a 300 exc no and so far I like it. I dream of a 525 e or m xc in the future but these 2 strokes are just so quick in the woods, which is wher i am 90% of the time.
