Fourtrax 300 floorboards

I just got a 98 fourtrax 300. Im looking for a set of floorboards. I have found 2 different kinds- one with mesh and protection under the foot shifter and brake pedal and one without that protection, just a hole. My dad used to have the ones without and I liked those. I wanna get yaw's opinion and what brand your prefer and where can i get them at the cheapest? I have also thought about buying some OxLite CV Axle guards, I found a set on ebay for $30 and I thought that was pretty cheap. Any preferences? Im open to any other ideas too.

i personally do not like any floor boards on trx300's...i've noticed when you install floor boards on trx300's ?..this puts your foot brake lever lower...sooooooooo...most ppl will put some kinda rubber or something on top of the floot shifter's end..to raise the height just so they can get thier foot on it !..too me..they are a big hassle. this is me though.

i don't like them..they are big and bulky !..they do more harm than good...maybe keep your foot from falling off the foot peg ??..but..other than that ??..they are worthless too me .

I've been thinking up ways to fabricate my own so when my wife is on the back she has somewhere to put her feet....that being said, if/when I do make em, they'll only go from the pegs back... not in front of the pegs for the reasons shadetree mentioned...and I sure as heck don't wanna drop the floorboards lower for the pedals to clear, since ground clearance on the 300's is already at a disadvantage..

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.

When you make them. Weld off of the footpeg and create a frame from that and put expanded metal on it. that will give you the right height and will still let you use the shifter and the brake. also you can adjust the shifter peg if you need to have more room... it is just a set screw that holds it on.. if i am not mistaken.

your right about the shifter screw..although..it's not a set screw..it's a 10mm headed bolt. taking it out..and raising the shifter a few splines solves that..butttttttt..the foot brake lever is a different story ! in order for the rider to press on the end of the shifter..it has to be alittle higher than the foot rest, or at least even with it. when you add floor boards..there has to be a open area below the foot brake lever..now you leave a part to rub on something when it bottoms out. nah...not worth it to me.

not trying to argue but to solve the problem with the brake take a piece of square tubing (to make it look nice cap the ends) and either bolt it or weld it onto the top of the brake lever. but I understand where you are coming from. It is a snowball effect that you have to keep making modifications to make it work smoothly and correctly. Thanks for the correction on the 10MM head bolt.

I still say if u def. want some sort of floor boards, just fab up "half-boards" like I mentioned... from the pegs back, thus avoiding all issues with the pedals. I'm planning on fabbing mine up maybe Sunday or Mon. if I get it done ill post pics and maybe give some idea of whether you would like them or not for yours.
