He wants me to see if I can fix the brakes since kids will be riding it, so I'll have to dig into it when I get time

Was really surprised at how clean it was. Needs a left front fender flare, already has floorboards on it, and even has a cooling fan. Rear end was just gone through too. He got it for $1200 which to me is a fair price for a decent 300 that doesn't need much work. 93, which IIRC was a transition year between Gen1 and Gen2, right? Anyhow, this one looks like it had the split Gen2 frame. Tank was spotless on the inside.
Sweet!!! If oil light doesnít come on suspect the FCU
I'm confused? This one starts and runs like a top. Only thing wrong with it appears to be a lack of brakes.

Loosemarbles I changed over to Mobil 1 10w-40 full synthetic. Checked my air filter looked for anything out of the ordinary. Washed and waxed it out it back under the carport with a cover on it. I have almost 3000 miles on mine. I ride entirely to much itís addictive.

Jeepwm69 My Rincon riding buddy has had me looking for a 300 for him for a few weeks. His aunt has a little Kawasaki KFX90 that her grandkids have outgrown, and he wanted it for his kids. She asked him to find her a little bigger one and they'd trade out (she knows he rides, and she didn't know what to look for).

I, of course, have projects, but slow going on those, so nothing that would be ready anytime soon.

I've found 3-4 over the last month. Either rough, priced high, or too far away. He went so far as to drive about an hour over into North Mississippi to get one, and the seller ghosted him and wouldn't answer texts or phone calls AFTER he drove all the way over there.

Guess i will be greasing it & maybe taping a string to the new one so i can get it out easier next time! :O
NGK makes one that's cheap and works great.

Jeepwm69 I saw this on someone else's bike and copied it. I liked how the factory bar protects the lightbar and it doesn't take up room on the front rack.

bighanded LED light bar arrived yesterday...going on the Blue..have one just like it on my golf cart that I really like.

I don't intentionally ride ATV at night, but I sometimes find myself working back in the woods and dark-thirty can come quicker than I want some evenings...the old headlights are usually plenty fine.. I still prefer the light generated by that type of bulb over LED, but when you really want some last minute bright work light..man a big flood/spot combo bar can really buy you that last half hour of work time..
not sure where I want to mount it though..have looked at a lot of pics of other rigs...I don't want it casting a shadow from the front rack if I mount it up at the steering column and most days I've got a basket strapped on that rack anyway...behind the front lip of the rack would keep it safer, but again, the basket snugs/straps right up against that rack lip..so it'll likely just mount on the rack in front.. I like to keep it high as possible...not down in the winch area..the one on my golf cart is mounted up on the roof line and I love that it gives me a totally different persepective than when you crank on down near the road...anyway...this is at least a "what have you done to your ATV lately" post (grin)

or at least it will be after the weekend...and no, I'm not gonna add it into the factory light switch...I've got a handlbar mount rocker switch that I'll wire up just for the bar.

_Wilson_ Yep.... My pop is just like that ^^^ i still hear about driving our semi grain trucks ... Why do you NOT use the clutch when shifting (after take off) lol! My dumb answer .... ( passengers are seen NOT heard... (Him) Hush and drive BOY!

Hey jeep... Thanks! The oil level is just right. Just need to order/replace the new seal, i may go ahead and give it a good diesel flush ?
