there is nothing better than the 300's. Thats why they stopped making them. The new fourtrax's are good bikes too.

Went ride today at Tower Tracks nort of Hammond on a Yamahama Kodiak 400. If it had tires with grip in the back I coulda got through some bad stuff and if we'da brought the tow strap. I want a Honda Rancher 420 or a Yamahama Grizzly 660 which I could get for free right now.

I just picked up a 97 300 a couple weeks ago, desert storm tan. I was looking for that bike specifically and I wasnt going to settle for anything else. What would it cost to repair the gears?

Default 300

This is my little brother's 300 from his fleet. He has an unlimited supply of daddy's money so this one is on the back burner he has a 800 Can-Am. It took minor fab work to put a foreman 350 rear end in it. It has to be from an old school 88ish and you have to fit the 300 swing arm to the rear axle housing on the 350. These rear chunks are alot tougher and can be found on ebay for cheap. The Rancher , 400, 450, and 500 foreman will not work the rotation and gear ratio is wrong. Price all depends on how much you find the used parts for. I have about 300 +- in the back end of his.
