Welcome From Canada

to the forum, this is a new model so very limited knowledge, first place I would check is your owners manual, Kawasaki is very good in including information regarding accessories outlets and what is needed.
Something we don't have on this forum yet is a owners manual and service manual in PDF format.

Welcome aboard. Would like to know what you think of the 300 as you accumulate miles.

Howdy! It's got to be better than my 650!

Tire choice is going to be a huge factor in how knarly you want to go. Couple those with heavy duty tubes....

But wait, there is more.

Crash guards in the form of fairing and engine. Those expensive bits need it, as does your radiator.

If you just want to ride it on gravel roads at a middlin' pace, I think you will be more than pleased with the bike.
