Well I picked up my P4 Fri, waited almost 2 months but saved $1,100. Same day the frame plugs showed up.

If your looking for an entire set of frame plugs for the pioneer check out:

Pioneer Frame Caps from 2FarOffRoad.com

I believe its 14 plugs total, plugs just about every frame or bed frame opening. $17 shipped.

Put about 30 miles on in the snow with stock tires on sat, sun put on the ITP589's on front, Gators on back,WOW what a world of difference, its like a whole new machine!! Great machine, only complaint is 3rd gear seems too long. I can see what people were talking about when it could use a 4th gear.

I forgot to mention I fluid filmed all the inner tubes before plugging them.

Was at the dealer yesterday and asked him again if this was a good idea. He walked me back to talk with the mechanics. They all told me that plugging the frame was a horrible idea. They said that you should never plug them. If you were to do something, would be best to spray in the ends to keep everything lubed up.

I haven't seen these caps to see if they are the good ones or the cheaper kind (just guessing the cheaper kind). They shouldn't seal it air tight until enough of the elements get past them to form a seal. Just for looks I would only worry about the rear tubes next to the hitch. The others you really don't notice during a walk around.

One of the Honda legends is the old 300 Fourtrax. There are 2 main things that killed the machine. Water in the rear final drive and in the frame. The drain holes in the frame would plug and the bottom of the frame would just rust out from the inside out. Water in the final drive just explains itself..

I have'nt seen an "expensive" kind so I could'nt tell ya if these are the "cheaper" kind. I will say I have already lost one of the rear plugs next to the reciever.

I found out about Fluid Film thru this site and local Auto Parts store carried it, its a waxy film that sealed the inner tubes. Yes it gave it a cleaner "finished look" its also one less place for dirt or water to hang out and possibly rust.

I lost one of the rear plugs next to the receiver also. I don't know if I caught a rock or what looked back there and it was gone.

Midnighthrasher: Ask your Honda dealer why some tubes are plugged and others are'nt?

I questioned my dealer when it comes to running full synethic engine oil. Nope Never was the response. Well alot of guys on this forum do.

I plugged my tubes for the piece of mind that they wont be get of ****.
