I bought a ex300 last month and taught myself how to ride. After three weeks I was tired of no power. I bought a 12k mile gen III and this is fun. I should have skipped the 300...There are a problems I have to work through. The clock resets occasionally. The clutch cable return spring is broke. The headers have dents because it is lowered. I’m looking forward to learning about the bike and continuing to learn how to ride.
