Money well spent!

Recommended Posts

As you guys have probably seen in previous posts, I recently purchased a 1992 fourtrax. I plan on keeping it stock and fixing her up as a ride around/ work quad. There's a small Crack in the plastics that I can get with my plastic welder and red filler, I thinks it'll blend in just fine considering it's just around where the plastics hang on to the back rack.

Also need to strip, repaint, and re-decal the fuel tank. What red best matches factory that yall know of? Could I even get the honda fourtrax decals anymore?. The gas tank is in great shape with no rust inside so I would love to keep the metal one. 

I have tie rod ends on the way. The front brakes need to be gone through. 

The back drum and all has been removed. 

And I plan on finding a factory tool kit.

I think she looks great for her age and am very happy with my purchase

Welcome aboard.  Looks like a good solid 300.

 

On your front brakes, unless it's a simple clean up with no new parts needed, you're better off doing a disc conversion.  SuperATV has them, and you get 10% off for mentioning you're a member here.

 

On your tank decals, Blue Line Graphics should be able to get you what you need.

 

Not sure on the paint.  There were a couple of different reds (Patriot and something else) over the years. 

 

You might try buffing the tank first.  Sometimes they can be cleaned up to look really nice.

88-97 was called Passion Red , then 98-2000 was called Patriot Red

It will probably take a good body shop to blend some paint to match the aged fenders or that tank will really stick out. I don't know if superatv offers the conversion for the 2x4 anymore. They did have one years ago but I think the demand wasn't high enough and they quit them. I could be wrong though.

The 300 2 wheel drive , front disc conversion started with a Super ATV Rancher 350 2wd disc conversion kit , then you had to make your own custom caliper mounting plates  to get the spacing right , Super ATV discontinued the Rancher kit quite a few yew years ago  ---- I actually have 3 300 2wd with disc brakes on them ------   I have a couple of sets of the custom mounting brackets that were never used , if someone could come up with a Racher kit 

 

I forgot how they are doing it , but the 300 club guys have come up with used parts to do the 2wd disc conversion , I think it is a Yamaha that is used

Ah crap, missed that it was a 2wd.

I have a set of 07-13 2wd 420 knuckles, hubs, rotors, and calipers I was going to try to put on the lone 2wd 300 I have.  It looks like it will work, doing the same thing I had to do on the 4wd machine to use early 420 brakes; enlarging the upper ball joint hole in the upper a-arm to accept the bigger 420 upper ball joint.

All the front needs is the hose xoming from the master cyl and maybe a master cyl rebuild. Time will not allow me to do a full disk Conversion

So, you can go down to your local paint shop and buy paint and shoot it on with a gun. They can match anything you want. The color code of your bike is Hondas' Passion Red (Code R109) You can get a quart of paint and all the stuff for around 100 bucks, and you have enough to do 2 tanks. Haven't had good luck with spray paint, as the color is never right, and it gets eaten off by your fuel. As for the decals, this is what you want 90-93 TRX300 Tank Decal Red | Blue Line Graphics (bluelinedecals.com). If you got any more questions about a honda 300 let me know.
