I need some solid advice

At 70 years old I've come to the conclusion my co-ordination is not what it used to be. Me and my lil 300 need all the help we can get. I think a set of spacers on the rear wheels "may" offer me better stability. Getting a moose out to my truck last year the rear of the 300 felt like a little more width would help. What do you guys think? If yes, what thickness?

Sal' , I have 2 inch spacers onTRX300 Utility Quads , no problems ---------------- on the extreme end I have seen people run double 3" spacers on each side
My thoughts were 1-1 1/2" per side. I have all stock suspension. Should I be concerned about the fender clearance?
Great job keeping after it salarguy!
No I don’t think a wider track will help you at all; if anything you want to keep the front end down.
As alloutdoors mentioned it’s all about reducing the rearward friction component and keeping your CG centered.

A sled can help; make sure you pack your gear on the front rack—balance that CG.

I was thinking the front quarter of moose would keep the front down pretty good.:big-grin
Thanks so much guys I think I will try the 1 1/2" Amazon has them for $40.
