2004 Kawasaki KLX300R Review

2004 Kawasaki KLX300R

Serious dirtbikers know that the Kawasaki KLX300R is one of the most versatile bikes in off-road motorcycling.

With its torqey four-stroke engine, lightweight chassis and impeccable handling, the numerous features of the KLX300R make it perfect for off-road exploring as well as enduro and cross-country racing.

The KLX300R comes fully loaded with equipment to handle the rigors of trail riding, and is covered by a six-month limited warranty. Standard items include headlight and taillight, odometer, sidestand, hand guards to fend off brush, snail-type chain adjusters for quick rear-wheel removal and adjustment for the O-ring chain, a U.S. Forest Service-approved spark arrestor, and a large fuel tank with reserve petcock.

Designed to be ultra-compact, the KLX300R motorcycle’s liquid-cooled 292cc engine features dual overhead cams activating four valves atop an Electrofusion-coated aluminum cylinder, which is wear resistant. The engine is wrapped in a high-tensile steel perimeter frame based on the design of Kawasaki’s championship-winning KX motocross bikes. A 26.5-degree steering angle and short wheelbase contribute to quick handling characteristics.
