Default Fourtrax Bigred rear end Mod!!!

So on my fourtrax both hubs are b!tched(missing a stud too). Had to do a rear brake delete because they we siezed. And the rear seals have gone to sh!t. So I got my money out of the rear axles lol.

For a $100 I bought a 1984 honda 250 BigRed rear end. So i am in the process of swaping them out this is how far I am in 45 min. but i have to milk the cows now.

sorry for the first wrong pic

I have a 350 rear end in mine, it's worth doing which ever rear end you use.

The 300 differential is wide open and prone to get water into it (open axle). The 350/250 rear end has the housing that goes out to the hubs and does a lot better job at keeping water out. The rear final drive is the weak link on the 300 and this mod just makes it that more bullet proof.

I think any of the '86-'89 Fourtrax/Foreman 350 rear ends will work. Also, the '85-'87 Fourtrax 250 2wd rear end will work.

great to her all the talk on this. I did consider the 350 rear end. But My hubs where toast and no brakes with a gernaded bearing. Figured the Big red would be nicer because the brakes are out of the line of fire. Moved over into the rim.


Here is an uppdate picture

The Big Red rear end is probably just as good. Any kind that has the full length axle tubes has to be better than the Fourtrax 300 rear end.
