Yes, you are correct Jason, only ring and pinions aren’t available for ATV’s so we use what’s known as a primary & secondary reduction within the engine/gearbox.

It all depends on tyre size and your intended use. If it’s a mud bike on 30” tyres a 62% GR.
28” 54%. Between stock and 28” a 32%.

If your 300 still has the plastic on and is a true super clean barn find you’d probably be better of selling it and buying a bike already built. Lots of people want a genuine 300 in ‘as new’ condition and will pay top dollar.
I personally think it would be criminal to modify such a tidy machine.
