I have given up on removing the rear nut so i am taking to a local shop who said they will remove it for $20

So I can then install this.

So some parts came in and I have most of everything installed.















This week the dmc graphic kit should be in.

I am going to do a heat wrap on the stock head pipe for now.
I am waiting on my ASV levers and featherlite shifter to show,then I am going to get this axle nut off so i can install my new axle and bead locks.

I am also going to order a set of itp mx tires for the front with itp or douglas wheels.

I need to order a grab bar and front bumper maybe AC or Jardine,not sure but its almost done.

I also spoke with the man will will powder coat the frame and extra's.

The frame,nerf bars and the loc ring for the itp wheel will be white.The a arms will be red,so will the swing arm.

I am also going with the dmc graphic kit with the matching seat cover.

I ordered this today.

TRX 300EX

I think I am going to be tearing it down in one week after all fitment issues are addressed.


later on I will grab things from used part outs,jb steering stem,flex bars,maybe some front itp wheels,definite on some different sized front rubber.

I am still waiting on my rebuild kit for my fox shocks.I am selling the 200x rear as I have a very nice set of fox to go on.

After the coating work is done I will be giving it a break for awhile,I sold my lt250r and found a nice trx 250r I am going to pick up,sad thing is I could have bought this bike for less then i have in my $50 300ex.

I was about the throw out the box my new exhaust came in and what do you know,the head pipe was in the box.I thought I only was getting the silencer.

For $50 I got a complete white brothers exhaust and for $70 snagged the clark tank.


I also ordered a set of 19x6x10 itp's with itp rims from this same guy in black.
I am going to order some new lug nuts and I decided to do a red a black frame set up.

I will be going to drop it off in a few days.
I snagged a set of +2 up 1 Leager(sp) used 450r a arms for $175

I also need to order a jb 400ex shock mount.

I am tapped out right now and really ready to be done and just ride.
Hope it was all worth it.turned a $50 bike and spent over 2K in less then a month.

Yes I will sell them once my new ones get here.

I paid $75 + shipping for them,shipping was 20 I think but I can get you a quote.

More or less these only where used to mock this up as I have not even rode my bike since this all began,lol.

Here is the White bothers exhaust.



$50 buck shipped......NO BS.
Was just re packed.

My Jardine nerf bars,I like them but I think I found some rath nerfs with matching bumper for a good deal.

If so i may part with these also.




Also anyone who wants some like new tires 98% tread with near perfect 300ex wheels no dents,bends any damage at all,lmk.

I am asking $250 for the set with tires,new valve stems.I will take reasonable offers.
The fronts are 21x7x10 and the rear is 20x10x9 they are in great shape.


Pic with them wide,still look good.

To answer your question on how I did the 450 a arm.

I cut the welds on the back hangers only,so have done the front.Problem is then mounting your bumper.

Anyway cut with a 4" grinder and a cut off wheel,should go through a couple,ziz wheel works fine maybe better.

Then take your grinder and smooth all the old welds with a 80 grit flap disk,clean everything up nice as this maybe your only shot before you weld.

Now mock everything up and tack the hangers,by bolting everything up as if it was a regular install.

then remove everything and weld top and bottom of the hanger,spray with some self etching primer,then your ready to paint,powder or ride.

The fab part only took an hour or so.

My problem was getting everything clean during the break down.I do not work on dirty anything.I spent half of the day with ovencleaner,wire brush,pb blaster and hydrofluoric acid (aluminum brite)Also eats rust up and cleans old tanks better then the kits you buy,after that its liner time.

If you need any help just email me [email protected]

It's alive..................After all this time of bolting crap on I finally decided to get it running,Only to fine my petcock was leaking.So I strapped on a Bayou 220 tank as a doner to fire it up.it runs great,now I am not smoking out of the exhaust but I am getting blow by out of the top of the valve cover,so I am assuming valves are dirty and not seating properly.I am going to seafoam it and adjust the valves for now.

I also plan to change the oil again and filter,any suggestions on something that helps with cooling?
I also need to find or rig a coil cooler and run more oil,I do not ride hard but I am trying to leave the motor stock as when I do something it kinda gets over done= expensive.

Yeah I'd like to see it to.And an oil cooler should help a lot with cooling the engine.

best I could do in the dark...............

Here is the semi completed frame,needs powder coating and my seat cover just got done a few seconds ago,just to hold me over until the dmc kit shows.








It was raining the day I did the work or I would have taking pics in stages to to a write up.

Sorry to post again,but if anyone runs across a 250 motor with kick start let me know.

I am going to convert mine in the near future.

I want to build the piss out of it.I am thinking I would run 12.5-1 with ported head,custom grind valves,springs and bigger cam.
Upgrade the clutch and basket and toss it in my frame.

I want the kick start,just really do not care about the battery and all the drama that goes with it.

If not I am going to build a hybrid with a cr250r dirt bike I scored for $200 last week.Runs ok the top end needs a rebuild and I figured the complete engine could be a good spare parts motor for the trx250r I have.
