Great fun but seen better days.

So, I am after a silencer without any holes in it, a maintenance manual and any advice on servicing a leaking carburettor.

Does anyone know of anywhere to source spare parts / manuals etc ?

Thanks.

Honda put the big red graphics on alot of the 300's and 350's because of the sucess they had with the original. They hoped it would increase sales. Can you find out if it's a 300 or 350 and what year?

Man, I've seen all kinds, and I mean a lot of the 300's, and I can't figure out why I've never seen one of those with the Big Red stickers on it before. Anyway, I'm pretty sure that is a 300 and I would say it is a '88-'91, because of the gray stripes on the gas tank. The front end on the 350's were made different and the gas tank was under the seat on the 350's, also.

Don't feel bad I've only seen about 10 or so. Your right the seats on the old 350's went over the tank.

Yeah, I know. I can't figure that out either. I've rode and worked on 4-wheelers for over 25 years and I've never seen one with the Big Red sticker on it. I remember the Big Red 3-wheelers and I've seen the new Big Red side by sides, but I've never seen a Fourtrax 300 with the Big Red stickers until I saw these pictures, today.

I doubt it, because Rfear and Submarine both, posted a picture of one and they both have the same sticker. Maybe it's a regional thing or something. Like some of the Canadian model ATVs are different than some of the US models, on some of the newer ATVs, anyway.

That's the only logical answer I can come up with. I don't know if it's the right answer or not.

These are some actual pictures of the beasty.





It is a UK model by the way. Had a crawl over it today but couldn't see any markings to differentiate it between a 300 or 350. It was sold as a 350.

Found this website that looked interesting, but they don't export,

That would explain the Big Red sticker. I still believe it's a 300, because Honda didn't put the 350 in that frame, unless they did it on the UK models. It should tell what size it is somewhere on the side of the cylinder jug.
