I'd like to add one of the rack baskets to the front rack of my Recon to hold a few things. I've looked at what's available online, but I am a little worried about the basket size since the Recon isn't what I'd consider a full size atv. Has anyone added one of these to their Recon and it was proportionate to its smaller frame? If so, a picture and a brand would be appreciated. Thanks

I have a 2001 Rancher which is smaller frame like Recon.
I had a pair of front and rear universal baskets from Titan Attachments that I put on years ago.

I still have the rear basket with drop down but sold the front basket because I didn't need it anymore.
They are good quality and fit.

They don't sell the front basket on their web site anymore but do list one on ebay in their titanattachments ebay store for about 88 delivered.
There is another almost identical one on ebay for 73 delivered.
They also list the outside dimensions so you can compare to your ATV.
One note is that they drop over the front loop that sticks up on your existing rack - look at the pics and you will see the opening for the loop to stick up thru.

Hope that helps!

On my old Honda 250 I used a plastic milk jug basket. Used bungee straps to hold it down. Works for smaller objects. Just saying.

I use the plastic crates from HomeDepot in the bed of my mule.
One has fencing tools/materials.
One has general cutters, machetes, axe, etc.
One has hand tools.
I just rotate them as needed.

Sometimes, they get bungied to the front of the Honda Rancher too!

Right now I have a plastic coca-cola style create zip tired on it, but its a little small. I will check out the titan basket. I appreciate the info.
