I have a 2005 300ex. Bought it brand new in Feb. 2008 as a leftover model, I got it reaaaaaally cheap. I showed up to buy a 450r and left with a 300ex cause it was 6k cheaper. im pleased with it, it does everything I need it too.
mods: HMF Slip on, Shock covers, jetted, moose handguards, and maxxis razr2 tires. putting the tires on today. hopefully test them out after work tonight, im excited. I will post my input on them after I test them. Thanks to stoopidbot for helping me with my tire decision. Im confident I will be happy with my choice.
