Starting to fix up my dad's 'old' honda 300ex, with my dad. Since my dad doesn't use it anymore, as long as I can help fix it, its basically mine. We fixed the sprockets and chain last weekend, and you can see some of the issues in the first picture, the sprocket is missing a tooth! We still need to replace the carrier bearing on the backend, and replace the clutch.
Boy does this thing run though compared to the other four wheeler we have, drifting around corners is really easy with the 300ex, and definitely has a lot more oomph.
This customer brought in a Kawasaki Mule in need of a roof. We fabbed him up a multi-use heavy duty steel roof with lights and a storage rack. Made of heavy gauge steel coated in rubberized bed liner to make it strong and stable for cargo or the occasional use as a ladder.
It will be great for filling deer feeders and getting hay bales down from the loft.
We outfitted it with plenty of lighting from the 52” curved led bar up front and two 3” pivoting led pods above the bed for working or reversing at night along with multiple led strips to light up the passenger and bed area.
All the wiring is tucked and hidden away to prevent snagging by tree branches. Key on power and backlit switches make it easy to use at night and saves the battery from those accidents of hitting a switch during the day.
The customer plans on using the rack for range cubes and mineral bags to help spread the weight toward the front suspension for those time when that “manufacturer recommended cargo weight” is only considered a suggestion. And he can’t give up the seating for all his riding partners. A working man sometimes doesn’t have time to make two trips.
Stephenson Engineering recommends following all guidelines set forth by manufacturers for safety reasons. But we still believe in making the customer as safe as we can no matter how they us their equipment.
