I am looking at Honda frourtrax 300's. Can you tell me what changes were made from 1992-1999? From the sticky it looks like there is a weight increase starting in year 1993. Is there a year that was better then another?

Thanks.

Mechanically they aren't all the same. CDI's are different, exhaust pipes are different. (in the '88 it had a bigger cam) that's just off the top of my head. cosmetically they are different throughout the years as well, the front racks are different. i believe in '94 they stopped producing them with grey seats and handlebar consoles and started producing them as black.

There's a few differences, but not a lot. I think the biggest difference, starting in '93, is that the frame was changed and the gas tank and I believe the front bumper and maybe some front suspension components were changed. The engines are all the same from '88-'00, with the exception of the cam and the exhaust on some years is different. There could be some minor changes in some of the internal engine parts, but all the parts will exchange, with the exception of the flywheel and stator on some years. Some years use a different brand of flywheel and stator and they can't be mixed and matched. In other words, you can't use a Nippon Denso flywheel with a Mitsba Denki stator.

What change took place on the frame? Did they widen it? Which model year's frame is better?

they changed the frame area for the gas tanks..amd all years from about '92-'00 are better to me...again though...all frames for the trx300's are great....what is your concern here ?..are you worried about the engine mounts ?..if so..they stayed the same at the bottom..but the changed the top mounts alittle.

I seem to remember somebody telling me to get a 96' or later. I can't remember why. I am looking at a good 92' but want to pass on it if the later years were better.
