Hello all
I'm looking for a new bike for green owning and the occasional enduro and hare and hounds. Been riding a 525 but been thinking of changing to a 300exc but seen fowlers has the 450xcw instock. Just wondering if anyone has one or what the differences are over a 450exc?? Any help or veiws would be apreciated

great bike for the money. Id buy one over a EXC due to the better features and being a better bike. XCW is better spec and a great motor. BUT not as light as a 300 smoker but id only buy a 300 for racing and the 400 for trail and racing.

450 XCW is EXACTLY same as 450 EXC but it is missing the following:
Horn
Brakelight switches
Indicators
Headlight/horn/kill combination switch (comes with push/pull lights on/off switch and a kill button)
Quiet silencer (comes with straight through version)

so it needs a few parts to make it road legal, including the EXC wiring loom.

XCF has SX suspension and SXF motor, but XCFW is an EXC suspension and motor.
US spec XCFW does not have lights, the official KTMUK imported XCFW have lights because they are South African spec XCFW ;)
