Honda fourtrax 300 Off-Roading










This is me messing around on my 1988 Honda fourtrax 300 at a field near my house. It’s got a supertrapp IDS2 Race Core exhaust (not just a slip on, includes header pipe) and K&N filtercharger air filter with a K&N precharger and the airbox lid removed. As you can tell, I haven’t made the accompanying jetting changes simply because I can’t find a jet kit for the carburetor. :P I used to have some nice 25×10-11 ITP Mud Lites on the rear but one of the wheels somehow got bent, so I had to buy a new set. In the process of trying to take the tire off the old wheel and put it on one of the new the bead got torn up, so now I’m stuck with the junky 24×9-11 tires (nearly 2″ smaller in diameter—tiny). Anyway, I’ve had my fourtrax 300 for nearly six years, so it’s about time I made a video of it. Update: As of early June, I finally found some jets and am running a 140 main jet (120 stock) and 48 slow jet (42 stock). It has quite a bit more power up high, and I managed just over 50mph with just these tiny tires according to my friend’s Lowrance GPS. My previous max speed was over 45mph with my bigger Mud Lites using my friend’s Garmin. That’s a substantial increase! PS Please pardon my friend for acting goofy at times. :)

    Not really (or at least not bogging like you). Like I said in my description, I used to have some Mud Lites until one of them got its lip screwed up when my step-dad was trying to take it off the wheel (the wheel somehow got bent). Now I’m just using the cheapo tires that came on the new pair of wheels. The Mud Lites gave me a lot more traction and ground clearance than the current shitty tires. :P Eventually I’d like to get some Maxxis Zillas (supposed to be the new lightweight mud-tire king).

    do u ever go in the mud with urs

  • TheMudking12:

    ya it is the snorkel goes 2 ft. over the handle bars and ive had water 2in. under the top and i like how it has low technoligy becase ive had no problems with the quad

  • NFSGamerUSA:

    Yeah, plus it’d just be more capable in most all situations. That sounds like a very nice setup that you’re got!

  • TheMudking12:

    ya but i do ride my 4×4 one more becuse i ride in the mud a lot more than simmple trails thats y it has a snorkle and a lift kit with 29in. mud lite tiers

  • NFSGamerUSA:

    The thing I like about the TRX300 is that it’d lighter and easier to throw around than a TRX300FW would be. I can’t say I wouldn’t like a TRX300FW, though, but I wouldn’t replace mine with one.

  • TheMudking12:

    i have a 2wd fourtrax and a 4wd one but ive got to say i like the 2wd one more cus it dosnt go through as much gas and its a better ride

  • NFSGamerUSA:

    I definitely picked up a bit of power after rejetting. It’ll pull a lot stronger on the top-end (and be more willing to) than stock. Check out the listing titled New Supertrapp IDS2 Tunable Exhaust for Honda TRX300 on eBay, that should be the system I have (it includes a larger header pipe). I would ask to make sure that it’s the full system and is intended for a TRX300 utility quad (not a TRX300EX sport quad). The best place to get the jets you’ll need is at JetsRUs. com, they’re real Keihins.

  • laxxmann4610:

    hey how much power did u get from that pipe is it noticable and can u send me a link to the website u got it at i have the same quad execpt mines 4×4 1995

  • branman2012:

    my bayou would do good on that also, with my 24″ itp mud lites on it, and 4×4. lol

  • IMUmbra:

    Its not a 2wd. its a AWD and yes. it is beast. They only made the Manuel shift a AWD. My 96 Honda Fourtrax 4×4 is a beast.

  • NFSGamerUSA:

    Thanks!

  • jbquesenberry:

    great video

  • NFSGamerUSA:

    It gets the job done for me, at least!

  • 944killa:

    for a 2wd that things a beast

  • NFSGamerUSA:

    I really didn’t have much of a traction issue sans my first approach to the concrete pile (assuming that’s what you’re talking about). Although it’d be great if my FourTrax 300 were 4WD, I’ve never once gotten into a position with it that I wasn’t able to get out of on my own in over six years of ownership.

  • papergunian:

    see now theres the problem wit 2wd quads, they dont have as close as much traction as a 4wd quad. my fourtrax can make it throught that easy

  • NFSGamerUSA:

    Dang right! They aren’t the best selling ATV ever for nothing! :D

  • itzvincent329:

    mines 4×4 though

  • itzvincent329:

    i got the same exact quad and thoes old hondas are indestructable my dads friend rolled it 3 times and it kept running while upside down and nothing broke on it

  • NFSGamerUSA:

    Thanks!

  • themfknightrider420:

    yea i rly dont see the need of a 600+cc i have a arctic cat 400 4×4 and a 85 250es big red 3wheeler

    great video man

  • NFSGamerUSA:

    Exactly!

  • THEbiglol:

  • NFSGamerUSA:
