350scott- Have you ridden the KTM 300's ST on the mountains? How do they compare to your 450f'? Is one superior to the other or is it mostly a matter of personal preference?

I have the option of using a 2008 450sxf as well that I was otherwise planning on selling. But it lacks the rekluse clutch, has electric start only and a 4 spd trans. And of course its a carb'd bike too. But if it makes a better/ easier platform maybe I'll go that way?

My seat of the pants dyno tells me the power levels are pretty similar between the two bikes, but I definitely find the YZ much easier to ride on the trails.

I have ridden a 300 ST in the mountains (where else do you ride them). I think the newer 450's work better and I think most would agree, however there are people that prefer the big 2 strokes. Regarding the 300 vs 2008 450sxf, I'd take the 300.

For the snowbikers out there, what is the point of leaving the front fender on the bike? Does it add any protection from snow "spray" off the ski or do you just leave them on because bikes look funny without them? To me it just seems like another part to break in the cold when they don't protect you from mud being tossed up by a spinning wheel.

Silly question I know but I am curious.
