We aren’t going to lie; at one time during
the build, when the frame was cut into multiple pieces and the engine was completely
unrecognizable, we had some doubts about it
actually coming back together. Lucky for us,
however, Howie had it all under control.
MotoFab Industries’ KX300X is definitely easy on the eyes! Sitting on the stand, it
screams to be ridden, and people can’t walk
by it without stopping to take a long look. The
Flo-Green Acerbis plastic and clean-looking
Decal Works custom graphics kit complement
each other. All the frame modifications are topnotch with clean welds, and everything fits right
into place. Like we said before, MotoFab has
the capability to design an engine package for
whatever you are looking for. Our test riders
were split right down the middle. Some liked
the stronger bottom-end, lower-revving engine
with a Rekluse auto clutch, while others liked
the higher-revving manual clutch version. Either
way, it’s great for the consumer that MotoFab
can offer different configurations.
Overall handling of the KX300X was
surprising. Built strictly for off-road use, it was
on the soft side, handling just about anything
on the trail with ease and comfort. What we
didn’t expect was how well it tackled more
moto-type obstacles. Howie and the MotoFab
Industries crew crushed this build, and we look
forward to sharing the next build with everyone
in a future issue soon. YZ345 anyone? ❏
PROJECT: KAWASAKI KX300X
A MotoFab Industries
KX300X can be a reality
for anyone and cost less
than you think.
Want to build a KX300X yourself? Howie can take care of you. For $1950, you
can send a KX250F or KX450F frame and subframe to MotoFab. They will
return it with all the modifications done and ready for an engine install.
