Need advice

Hello everyone I'm new to the forum. I'm looking for some advice and options on a build. I've got a bone stock 1992 Honda Fourtrax 300fw that I've got to do some work on. Figured since I've got to go into it to do some clutches and stuff I might as well go ahead and do a gear reduction kit on it. My question is this: If I plan on doing a 54-68% gear reduction would a 317 big bore kit be worth the extra money? I'm planning on upgrading the clutches, exhaust, cam, timing chain, rocker arms, porting the head and doing a 4" lift on front and going to stretch the rear about 4" or so. Any other modifications that I might be missing? Thanks in advance

    Man go with the 54%. Make sure you get a built drive shaft and or make it from high quality steel. Don't just cut it and sleeve it. Go with the 317 kit as it makes a reliable engine and uses all stock Honda parts. Run a big red 250 atc cam. Find you a 350D rear axle assembly and swap out the old 300 rear axle. Also run ebc clothes as well. If you have any other questions hit me back.

    Agree with everything Nutt said except the gear reduction. What size tires are you going to run?  That will determine what GR % you get.
