A little update

Got the bed on and added rear springs - you can see them peaking out just below the muffler

Looks like that might turn out pretty good.




Most 4-wheeler problems are caused by a loose nut connecting the handlebars and the seat!!

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

for the buggy, with the weight on the rear end of the bed (when loaded) a full axle tube that spreads the weight out over the rear, instead of just at the bearings at the diff i think it would really benifit you.


jemmy3 did a GREAT write up on the install. not a hard swap, just hope you have a good rear from the get go!!!!!! pretty sure that is what my problem was.

like helmut said, once you modify the the bolt up location to the 300 swing arm, its a direct bolt on and go rear.

Garage
250 Fourtrax or TRX350D

I put a 1986 TRX250 Fourtrax rear in my 1996 Honda TRX300 and it was very easy , I had and extra swing arm which made lining everything up and welding it a snap , I was able to do it all on a table , to make a bolt on flange which I welded to the tube I took a center section of a 300 rearend which I had and cut it about 3 inches long , then cut it in half , this sandwiched the axle tube but had a little gap , I took another piece of pipe and cut it like 4 inches and then cut it in half and took about 1/2 inch off the lenght of each piece , slide this pieces under the flange and used a c clamp and squeeze it all together off set the slices and welded down the gap of the pieces , welded it all the way around and unbolted it from the mock up swingarm and put it on the ATV , used a band saw to cut the steel bushing on the lower end of the rear shock flush with the eyelet as it stuck out the rubber about 3/8 on each side , I wanted to use the 250's 25x12x9 tires and rims and the right side hits the muffler on a hard bounce , 1 inch wheel spacers took care of that , there was nothing else to do and I really think the 250 rear end is heavier duty , never done the 350 swop , but read about it and I think there are shock mounts to deal with as it had 2 ---- oh , one other thing was I didn't use the trailer ball hitch plate as the angle was too much on the 300 and thats another project I need to do ------------ need to figure out how to do pics as the 250 axle job looks good
