    I found a good deal on a lightly used Eagle snow plow. With full mounting equip (push tubes, etc.) The guy said he will throw in the mounting plate from is Yamaha ATV... but I have a honda recon. Will this plate fit?? can I make it fit?? if not, hoiw much does a mounting plate cost and where can I find one?

    but you would most likely only have to drill new holes in the yamaha plate.

    It all depends on how big the frame is on the other quad, but for the most part it shouldn't be to big of a difference, but then again who knows.:cool:

    I have a honda rubicon plate under my quad. the guy before me had it on there. he had to weld wings on it to make it wider. and I also had to drill a hole in the plate for the engine oil drain plug. here are some pics of it under the quad.

    if it is to skinny for the recon frame you could mount it on another steel plate that is bigger and cut the second plate to the size you need.

    my quad had 12inches of clearance stock. I put a 2 inch lift on it. so it has 14 inches now. then about inch when my mud tires are on. so I am good.

    You'd think they would make mounting tabs that go above the fraim rails...
