No steering head lock found. Safe to say this is an XC300?

I believe so.
And, from the Vin number, my best guess is that it was one of the earlier 2002 XC300 that was made for the US. As such, it should have come with the smaller ignition.
I missed whether you specified which ignition it has (if it still has the original ignition set-up).
It's easy to tell at a glance, as the wires come out of the case in the front of the flywheel with the smaller ignition, and the wires come out to the rear with the larger ignition.

One of the neat things about the Gassers is that they are "infinitely rebuildable". It is fairly easy and relatively inexpensive to keep them in great working shape. I've got a very good friend riding the enduros in Washington on his 2004 ECO300. He rides hard, with a big grin on his face.

I just saw this. Thank you Rick, and ya'll are welcome to whatever help I can give. I sure don't know it all, but I'll share what I think I know.
I benefit from a lot of good information on here, too. So I want to give back what I can.


Good Riding!

A 2000 year model EC300 is my best guess, without looking at the bike.

Is the airbox "pre-side door" (side door for the airbox started with 2001 year model), but the bike has the 2000 and later tank and seat?

I will get a couple of pix of it and post them. I am just lost when it comes to these bikes. I am still learing. Thank you for taking the time to help. Matt

I believe that you have a '99 EC250, or at least it started that way.

My VIN doesn't quite follow the rules:
VTRECH2C49G400024

It was sold to me by the original owner as a 2009 and even though its red now he said it was a white Six Days version - which my swing arm stickers and side air box covers seem to agree with.

and can anyone tell me what forks came with the Six Days version? Mine don't match the pics I've seen so far. Forgive me I'm new to GasGas and the forum.
Thanks
