Funny you ask, I was actually working on one now! Won't be ready for a while, because my Moose rebuild kit isn't coming in until next week!

If you want the service manual, you can download it by clicking the link below in my signature. The manual will help some, like telling you how to get the carb off the quad, but won't actually tell you how to take some of the things off like the slide and the jet needle. There are some tricks to it. Use the manual, and any help you need, you can try and post back here. Many guys here to help!

The tools you will need are

1. Phillips screwdriver
2. 6mm, 7mm and 8mm wrenches or small Crescent Wrench
3. Flat head screwdriver

Here is a video of a kid cleaning a dirt bike carb. It's somewhat close, but the 300ex carb is actually MUCH different, if that makes any sense! LOL

No problem, I left out a tool you will need, either a drill bit or an awl or a very small punch to take the pin out of the float. Make sure you go in the correct direction, It takes very small taps with a small hammer to get the pin out!

Depends what you want to spend. HMF slipon or FMF Powercore 4 (full exhaust) are about the same price. HMF claims 10% increase in HP. Not sure what FMF claims but any of those 2 is better than stock.

To be honest you don't see many people getting rid of those. If you're hard for cash, save up and buy an FMF full system exhaust for $249 shipped on ebay!
