Hello everyone. This weekend I traded in my old 2009 Versys 650 towards a mothers day present for my wife. Lots of farkles are currently enroute to our home. LOL Of course my wife being all of 4'11" tall Ill have to lower it a touch. There doesn't seem to be a lot of foam to work with in the seat for reducing the seat height though. I removed the SWMotect plate and givi topcase to put on her bike. I have lowering links from T-rex coming as well as their adjustable side stand. Im not big on lowering bikes but not much of a choice when you're a shorty. Shes had several bike previously, I built her a nice SV650S with GSXR suspension parts that she loved but we sold it when we moved.
Beautiful bike. You can farkle the X300 in many ways. I have a Youtube Channel dedicated to the upgrading and moding the X300. The Channel name is: trekOCLVone. I recommend safety items first like swap out all bulbs to LED. After that crash bars and a T-Rex Heavy Duty Skid plate that can be beefed up to lift the whole bike on a motorcycle jack. And then many more fun projects like changing the front sprocket to a 15 tooth rubber bumpered sprocket. All this an more on my YouTube channel.

I made my own "dog-bones" to lower my KLR650 way-back-when. Pretty easy once you have the appropriate measurements (AND a drill-press).
The bog bones aren't rocket surgery - just clone the stock dog bones with about 3/4" longer distance (your mileage will vary) between the mounting holes for one inch of drop on the bike.

That can happen. For the links I have in my Youtube videos and links I've been asked the same question. Amazon has you tell them what brand/model bike you have and then the bulbs say they don't fit. Well, the do and the work great.

It’s a standard 1156 base bulb. It literally fits 1000s of different vehicles but probably not OEM which we already know since the OEM is not an LED.
Mike, It's a 1157 bulb (rear tail light & brighter stop light) You can just edit your comment above to reduce any confusion. Great find by the way with the blinking stop light feature. I'm going to order it now. The LED I have has been working great but without the blinking feature. I'm all for safety - and with this bulb more safety. Thanks for sharing.
