Is it Stock out of the Box???? Without any info on your Machine....Here is what I would do First......Weight=Power Loss........Personally I would Cut one Wheel off the Front and go from there....:eek: That should save you about 80 LBS.....

Your bike Dry is 395....For Giggles I figure the Weight of you and your machine WET is 500 Pounds.... Which is on the light side.....I also figure your bike is putting out around 20 HP....

Your Power:Weight Ratio is 1 : 25

This means that for every 25 pounds of weight on your vehicle, you have 1 horsepower. So for every 25 pounds of weight you remove from your vehicle, you will feel the effects of an additional 1 horsepower, although your actual peak horsepower will not change.

Keep in mind that with every pound you take off, your power to weight ratio changes, so you will have to re-calculate each time you remove weight.

In my HUMBLE opinion......The bike isnt Worth the money to upgrade....Its a Beginners Ride(Nothing wrong with that!!!) The best money you can spend for an upgrade would be when you get better at Riding it ,,,, Move on to a bigger Quad....

      Went to my local parts store to check and see if they had a replacement iridiumix plug made NGK for 2012 Bruteforce 300 4X2. They found me one and had it there the next morning. I did'nt really need to change the plug, i just have them installed in my car and noticed power, gas mileage, and a crispier throttle response. Well installed it in the machine, it really made a noticeable throttle response, and my mid-range power has greatly improved. And if u have a 2012 Bruteforce 300 4X2 i would strongly advise you to buy this plug. Here's the Part Number from the box came in DPR7EIX-9 7803

      Do you think a King Quad 300 would have enough power to move a set of tracks in low all the time?
