Rear Seat on 87 honda fourtrax 250

I was just curious if anyone has added a rear seat to a fourtrax 250. The rear rack is obviously missing some bars in the middle so that would cause a lot of sag for the seat... wasn't sure on the best way to make that work and then I was wondering what seat would really work on the back of it for cheap (probably going to use a soft bag since the hard plastic ones are 200 +)

You want foot pegs for the person on the rear seat? Or just footpegs? I used folding pegs for a sailboat mast, the black version of these:

I made a fiberglass panel along the rear fenders, using the fenders as the mold (12 layers, 2" wide) and then bolted the folding pegs to this when it was cured. Gives a lot of stability to the rear rider. Handles were 1" rounds, but I would use larger next time - 1 1/2".

Riding is much more stable if the rear weight is inside the rear axle, and grossly unstable if it is not. Rear rack is designed for 120 lbs, but not a rear rider. Any bump, even at 10-15 mph can flip you back, and quickly.

I agree 100%, these 250's wheelie easily, be careful if your planning on a passenger, I should imagine it will cause havoc if you attempt a relatively steep incline.
Just a thought... As there is a lot of room under the front fenders on the trx250a' it may be worthwhile fitting a water ballast tank if you plan on carrying a passenger. It wouldn't need to be to big maybe 2 gallons (10 litres) or so. Would certainly make for a safer ride for the two of you.
