Thank you for the Forum.

Hi all. Joined a few months ago before I bought the X300. Lots of good advice which was a great help. Picked up the bike last week and am currently doing lots of riding to get me to the first service. Am having fitted luggage, lights, crash guards, DC socket for my GPS and a 15 tooth sprocket. Great little bike, fun to ride. Look forward to following all your adventures. OOROO from Australia.

Congrats on new bike. Sounds like you are headed in the right direction with your mods. Don't forget radiator guard if you plan on doing any off pavement riding.

I have 1,000 miles on my X300 and have had risers and the 15 tooth counter sprocket installed and really like this bike. I usually only ride 1 up but have ridden with my wife or daughter at times, and it did better than I thought it would. The 15 tooth sprocket seems to really make the bike feel more 'relaxed'. If I could have a 16 tooth sprocket put on without the light coming on than I would do that. This is the first high-revving bike I have had but find it to be very smooth on the interstate. But i would encourage you to go to the 15 tooth sprocket. I'm sure the bike would still do well on the dirt but I don't have any experience with it yet.

As for the top case, I just bought an 'el cheapo' on Amazon and is 55L. I just drilled holes in the bottom and secured it to the rack that came with the bike. Congrats on your new X300.

Ride safe,

JeffR
