Need advice, first winch install.

I need to install a Superwinch Tera 3500 on a 550 Grizzly. I wonder if anyone has any advice on where to put the solenoid? And where is the best place to get 12 volt, key switch power? Also the kit came with a circut breaker that looks to me like it leaves alot of positive current uninsulated. It looks like two breakers put together with 2 pieces of metal to attach the power to. and no insulation on the bare metal... Any advice would be very appreicated..

I don't know if the 550 has the box under the seat like the 660 does, but I mounted my solenoid in the box under the seat to keep as much mud and water out of it as possible.

I mounted my solenoid under the hood of my quad. If you have EPS it may or may not fit in there. My winch also has the circuit breakers, i wrapped it in electrical tape and put it under the seat then i tie wrapped it to the frame.

I will take a picture of the breaker and put it up.

I rigged mine up under the plastic just in front of the shifter the left of the handle bars.
