I am at the point now I am wanting a larger 4X4 but i have so much fun on this little 250 that I will probably hold out another year or two. With the ITP Mudlight tires on the back it does really well in mud considering its a 2WD.
Hey Prostreet, take it from a LONG time atv rider, IF you can afford to buy a bigger 4X4 AND keep the recon- do it You will love having the ablity to jump off your 4X4 and jump on the little 2 wheel drive and play around. If you look at the yahoo photos in my signature you can see two projectquads I built. The green 300 was a stock 94 that Ibought new 97 plastic and put on it, stick stoppers homade fllorboards, homade heat shield, K& N power and jet kit, bigger mud tires, etc. The other is a Honda 250X frame with a 200M 3 wheeler motor and tranny. It had electric start and auto clutch like your recon. I called it a 250XMES!
