    The OP is in Poland so "EXC" in Poland may be the same as an "XC-W" here in the US.

    That comparison is spot on in my opinion. I switched to a 2013 350XCF-W from a 2014 300 XC-W 6 Days and like the stability and smooth power of the 350 over the 300.

    hence the question. How much lighter in handling it fills to 500 exc?
    the 300 is so much better than the 500 in the following ways, stops allot quicker, turns in easier, feels lighter in all conditions buy a long way, has more power until your over 65/70MPH in a straight line drag, then the 500 starts to win, so much smoother in the low end ,no power pulses when comparing to a 500, smoother if its the new CB motor, allot less engine braking, but its smells like a 2 stroke and you will too.

    My 14 350s.x. feels powerful off idle to one quarter, then flat on through the middle then picks up at high r.p.m.

    I insist that all my bikes have plates. A plated bike is a big plus at least in the western US where we run into roads which require plates interlaced with trails in many areas.

    That comment was for the OP but I was also unaware he is from Poland. I recently got my xcf-w plated, it's nice to have when connecting trails.
