88' to 95' fourtrax 300

I have a 88' Honda fourtrax 300 and I was wondering would a 95' fourtrax battery cable relay fit my bike?

yes, pos from battery hooks to one side of the starter solenoid, then on the neg side of battery to ground on engine. back at the starter solenoid, other post, cable on it, then to starter.

If I don't have the fuse box will the solenoid work properly? Do I need the box in order for the solenoid to run ?

First of all Vinny my advice would be to fully charge your battery. Secondly, make sure you have all the correct parts in your wiring loom. Start from one end (battery) and work through the loom, it's just a process of elimination, finding wiring faults takes time and patience.
