I traded my old military CUCV to a friend for this bike. It was in bad shape when I got it but after a couple weeks of work and about $1000 it started to come to shape. I used the Krylon Plastic Fusion paint on the body. Don't ever use it on yours. After one ride I went to wash the mud off and the paint stuck to the mud. This was after letting it cure for about a month. Bedliner is the way to go for an ATV. Starts and runs like a Honda- dependable, but slow. If your front Honda brakes are bad I would definitely recommend the High Lifter disc brake conversion kit. The brakes are now easy to clean, reliable, and they have incredible stopping power. They will pay for themselves in no time. The Warn 424 is also a great product. It gives the bike the easy, tighter steering of a 2wd and transfers all 300cc's of raw power to the rear wheels.
