I like the floorboards on the Fourtrax 300s. Some of the floorboards come with a piece that bolts to the top of the foot brake, but the ones I've had have had a steel piece, instead of rubber.




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.

Yeah, that's what they're for. LOL. And they also keep rocks and sticks from flying up and hitting your feet and legs.

If you get good floorboards, they will have cutouts for the foot shifter and the brake pedal and a steel piece that bolts to the top of the brake pedal, so it sticks above the level of the floorboard. I've had floorboards on several Fourtrax 300s that I've owned and liked them real well. If I had a Fourtrax 300 right now, I would buy floorboards and put on it. Although, the floorboards are probably getting harder to find now, since most of the newer ATVs already come with floorboards. I don't really see any disadvantages/negatives at all.

If you've never had rocks and sticks fly up and hit your feet, then you're not riding enough. LOL.
