Sometime in August I found a posting on a forum that had detailed instructions with pictures on how to install a winch on the grizzly 700. Does anyone have that or know where it is becuase I can't find it now?

thanks

I thought I read on the forum that it would be easier to mount the winch on the mouting plate before you put the plate on. Did you find that to be the case?

Either before or after it really doesnt make any difference. MAYBE its easier, but not so much that it should be a concern. Just remember that the coloured wires go to their respectively coloured terminals. If you are going with synthetic line (I recommend it) make sure you've got an unblemished/new roller fairlead for it as a scuffed one will eat it up right quickly.
Oh, and use some locktite.

Its a really simple install.

I agree it's a simple install but I'll add two tips that aren't covered in the instructions from Warn.

1. Typically it's good to mount the contactor high up in the bike where it will stay clean and dry. Unfortunately there's not as good place for that on the Grizzly. Everyone seems to be doing fine mounting it directly to the back of the mounting plate so don't sweat it too much.

2. When you do wire everything up, go to the autoparts store and pick up some dielectric grease. Grease up the terminals good as added protection against corrosion. They're hard to get to once everything is mounted so it's best to do it up front.

What did you all do with all the extra slack for the yellow, blue and switch box wires?
