Heres my work horse. We've owned it since fall '97 and I've been running it as mine since winter '17. Went from red and black to green and black.

Over the last few years I've installed:
-2" lift kit
-stock 22x10x9 to a 25x12x9 tire
-stock 22x7x11 to a 25x8x11 tire
-4) 2" wheel spacers on all four corners
-stock 22mm to a 27mm carb/throttle
-new rear seals and bearings
-brake work
-taller handle bars off of a Honda Rancher 420

Its time for a revamp. Tired of driving around on a bike that looks like Christmas colors. Paint has started peeling. Never painted the rims before and the silver paint started flaking off 3 years ago. This summer the black primer started flaking. Now the rims are rusting up but for being 22 years old it's understandable. Also tired of being to wide and getting stuck between trees when trail blazing. Wheel spacers gotta go.

@diddie no power loss? Interesting. Thats great news then. I figured with the smaller hp engines you would be able to notice a difference and when you got up to 24hp engines 1.5hp wouldn't make that big of a difference.

Rims are now painted and mounted. I need to get a inner tube for the front right because it has a gash in the sidewall.

The old girl had a work out the other day at camp hauled wood and dirt all day. Had a big tree crash across the stream and ended up knocking over 4 more trees which clogged up the stream flooding the lawn. At least it dries up a little over night just mucky at the moment.'98 Honda Recon 250 Lifted 4wheeler  20200254

Theres some new things that have been done to it. I have gotten rid of the stock 11" narrow front rim and have I starred one of the tires on a honda rancher 420 rear 11" rim to get some more width out of those 25x8x11 and theres a huge difference. Off set is great it is the same width are the rear end. No more spacers on the front and either way it still out farther then with the spacers so looks like a 4x4 now. Not though. Only a inner tube would work. Just have to bust the bead on the other and paint it. Cant decided to go green or this brown but I'm just using it as a primer to spray the green on it I do green. They was extremely rusty. Now the new thing. It's a rear hook up tractor plow. I want to fabricate some mounts and use it on my quad.'98 Honda Recon 250 Lifted 4wheeler  20200419

Ive got a true 48" Quad Blade. It is mounted now. Tomorrow ill see if I can mount the badlands 2500 winch up in the front of the bike with the HF mounting plate with out having to by the correct $60 winch plate for the bike. Shes gonna need loaded down pretty good to get any traction out of it. Bikes is 397lb from factory google says. So as the bike sits now with out plow its closer to the 420lb range. Gear selector went back in dec on the Polaris Sportsman 800. The 10horse 38" snow blower Gilson tractor just isn't cutting it so this is the next best thing.

My sister asked for a igloo so she got it. Pushed up a half of a acre in to a pile. Had to leave alot so I didn't trash the field. Snow had turned to ice. Some spots was 8" and others was all the way up 12" range. Its a 16'x12'x5'4". It was a little to much for the bike. 6 hours of non stop plowing. Fighting up hill it most spots wasn't good. Went through 2 ratchet straps and bent the plow pins pretty bad. Rear rack is about to snap off. The foot boards are completely busted up and shot from getting on and of all day doing the ratchet strap. The bike isn't doing good. I've lost all rear brakes and shes smoking pretty good now. As soon a you give it a little throttle its blue. Really sucks. Cleaning up the wood shop now to pull it in for some must needed repairs. Here's the list.

- Change the rear end oil. Must be water in there freezing up from creek riding last spring.
- Oil change for engine.
-Install new bolts in the rear rack. Sheared 2 of them from that 150lb Luggage tote moving around.
- See if the foot boards can be stitched back together. I busted them up.
- Tape up seat. Shes all ripped to shreads again.
- Figure out why the the light bar won't work. Toggle Switch probably went bad.
- Winch plate should be coming in soon to install that.
- Id like to slide the light bar back to be able to add weight to the front of the bike.
- New Foot brake cable
- Adjust carb. Running a little too rich in high throttle
- Want to jet carb later this year.
- Add a after market cdi box to go with the jetting to be able to go beyond the stock rev limiter.
- Don't have materials to make a proper plow mount for the bottom of the bike so gotta order one.
- Weld on a new edge to the plow.
- Add those gravel skids to the plow. This plow was obviously built before they was a thing on quad blades. Lol!
