If you've never had rocks and sticks fly up and hit your feet, then you're not riding enough. LOL.
when the hell do i have time to ride ????????..i'm too busy restoring atv's !..lol.
See, that proves my point. LOL.




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.

nahhhh..i'm not arguing..chit..i love brain storming !..ask helmut how much we get into it !..lol...i've seen that way on the top part your talking about..i think it's uglyyyyy..but..hey..if it works for the person ridding it ?..then so be it !..not my baby. and yer welcome on the correction....if i ever happen to be wrong ?? ( happends alot for me these days ! )..feal free to chim in..i look forward to being corrected !..lmfao.

yeah I agree it does look ugly. Also ever since I joined the forum I find myself brainstorming more often now on how to make my bike better myself. Prolly gonna put a thread up on rear racks for the 300 gotta modify mine and i dont wanna change the subject on this thread so if ya got any input on it just let me know on that thread.

slow is smooth, smooth is fast

Quoted from a buddy "I may be dumb, but at least I'm not stupid!" O_o

I'd rather you hate me for everything I am, than ever love me for something that I'm not.

The ones on my 300 has kept several sticks from coming up and has acted like a skid plate once when I slipped down over some rocks.

There's no excuses for riding a HONDA,only REASONS!

96 TRX300FW
Upgrade with 25" Dunlop tires w/12" rims from a 09 Foreman
07 RECON
Bought new in 07 and still going strong
06 TRX90
Bought new in 07 also still going strong
01 TRX250EX
Needs work,maybe I'll get around to fixing it one of these days
