Hi, new to the forum. I currently have a 2005 trx450r. I started when i was 7 with an old early 80's honda 50. Then i bought a crf100f, bored it etc. Now i have a quad (honda)! Basically i love hondas and want a 4x4 honda. I'm in school now so i can't get a newer one. I was looking at the old honda fourtrax 300 4x4. I heard that they are tough machines. What's a good price and year for one? And would anybody else recomend another honda, like a foreman, or a 350, or 450? I just dont want to spend over $2000.

Thanks

All depends on what you want. The 300 is a great machine and anything from like 93-2000 are all the same.

As for other models, for the price range you want to pay you're looking at older machines so they all will have carbs, straight rear axles, etc, so the size is all you really need to decide about, and anything will be a good machine.

Welcome to the forums. The Fourtrax 300 4X4, the 400 Foreman, or the 450 Foreman are all great quads and you should be able to find a decent one in your price range. I would stay away from the 350 Fourtrax/Foreman, because parts are getting hard to find for them.

Thanks, ive been leaning towards the 300 becuase my friend knows somebody who has one and he beats his hard. i found one near me for $2000 that needs a battery and the gas tank repaired. Also comes with a plow and extra tires. Year is 1996. Sounds a little high, think 15 or 1600 would be reasonable. the quad looks like its in very good condition

Yeah, that does sound a little high. I've seen a lot of nice ones sell for around $1,500 with nothing wrong with them.

If you buy it, before you buy it, check the rear axle bearings. If they're bad, it may have rear diff problems, that's a common problem for the Fourtrax 300.
