New here...I live at 5,000 feet elevation in the Western NC mountains and deal with lots of snow in the winter. Just bought a 2017 Grizz with Warn winch and plan to use it as my snow plow. I have always been pleased with Warn products. When I looked for the part number for the front mount Warn plow plate it only gives the numbers through 2016. That part number is 95745. Yamaha has a front mount by Warn that is supposed to fit Grizz years 2016-2018. That part number is B16-F84Y0-V0-00. Yamaha dealer is not sure their part will fit the Warn 92100 front mount push tube/assembly. May want me to by the Yamaha whole plow assembly (by Warn) which I don't need. Customer service at Warn says they are unable to help me reconcile this. Hard to understand that. Anyone have any information? Thanks in advance.

I just finished this install on a 17 Grizzly 700. I did the Warn Provantage front mount system. This is what I needed assuming that you already have the yamaha warn winch mount and winch installed.

1. Warn 92100 push tube assembly
2.Warn B16 F84Y0-V0-00 Front mount plate
3. Warn 78354 plow blade (this is the 54" blade, you may want a bigger blade)
4. Warn 84526 pully kit (This is not necessary for the install but it is worth getting in my opinion. It reduces wear and tear on your winch cable and winch and slows down the lifting of the blade giving more control.)

Note that for this installation, you will need to remove the winch and winch plate off of your bike. Remove the winch from the winch plate and stack the front mount plate from the above list on top of the your existing winch plate. Then use the longer screws that came with the kit to attach the winch to the plates. Then install the winch with the 2 stacked plates back on the bike. This is somewhat of a pain, but once installed it's a really nice system. It literally takes me 10 seconds to install or uninstall the plow and the front mount plow plate does not affect ground clearance.

I have the center mount Warn provantage system for my 2008 700....works just fine. I am currently in the process of adding a plow system to my 2017 and was wondering what opinions anyone has on the center mount versus the front mount. In some ways I think it makes sense to have the two units be interchangeable but would consider the front mount if it's a better setup. Thanks.

By the way, I wouldn't be against a different brand of plow setup if there's a better combination of price/quality.

If it helps anyone, I was able to get the entire Warn Provantage plow system for $450. That includes the blade, front mount bracket, plow tubes. I had an existing winch and winch plate installed. I think it was a pretty good deal. The dealer wanted $1300 for the same parts including installation. I purchased from multiple sources (Amazon, ebay and online yamaha dealer) and did the install myself.

I have a kfi mid mount system (they only make mid mount) and it is the most heavy duty built plow I've seen, especially the pivot area for the push tube.

After using it one season, I was a little disappointed in the lift height I was getting. So for my 2nd season, I moved the mid mount 8 inches forward. Just had to drill a couple new holes in the plate. Wow, what a difference. Lift height almost doubled, and my tabs underneath never get hung up on rocks anymore cause they are now closer to being in line with front axle.

Front mounts are nice, but I've been happy with the kfi setup after that tweak.

I have a 2017 Grizzly. I purchased the Warn Provantage system with 60" blade, front plow mount, Power Pivot. It took me forever to install it. Nothing was fitting properly. I finally got it all together, but the power pivot didn't work. I checked all cables and connections, and they are fine. So I decided to lift the blade with the winch and try a few plows, and sure as S**t, after a couple of passes, the plastic piece of crap pully busted, the blade dropped, and broke my winch cable. Warn is crap! Does anyone know where I can get a steel pully, and what size it is and all what's needed to install it. I looked on Amazon, and they have one, but it says it will not work with either a Power Pivot, or a Power Lift. What the heck? What's the point of having a Power pivot if the pully system won't work with it? I have snow here already, and it's getting cold out. Can anyone please steer me in the right direction for that pully, and does anyone know any solutions or trouble shooting I can try to get the Power Pivot working?

Thank you in advance:
Dave

What plastic pulley are you referring to, and do you have a link or picture of it? Cause the one I am familiar with is all metal: https://www.amazon.com/WARN-84526-ProVantage-Plow-Pulley/dp/B004JMDVDS

He is probably talking about the plastic part that comes with the kit. Is is not intended to use with a winch cable, it's for a rope and it's useless. Buy the pulley linked above by tythomps, its worth it. It should be included with the kit.

Do either of you have this pulley system? If so, will it work with my Power Pivot? On the Amazon site that you refered me to, says that it will not work with the Power Pivot or Power lift. I don't know why, but do either of you use it with a Power Pivot?

I broke that same plastic "guide" the first time using my plow, replaced with a pulley and never looked back. I don't know anyone who used a power pivot successfully. They say that the weight of heavy snow with force the blade to turn through the gears and ruin them. I just get off and turn the blade manually.

If you're decently good at fabricating, following along with what I did here could be done to any plow: http://www.grizzlycentral.com/forum/general-discussion/79586-homemade-power-angle-mechanism-plow.html

It's not nearly as fast as a hydraulic setup, and I've only got one winter's worth on it so I can't attest to its longetivity yet, but it was easy to do and cost far less than a power pivot. And was fun to do anyway.

Hey Ty.. I have a plow that I'm going to mount on my old 660 (going to sell the works when done). The plow is a Country Cycle mid mount. Bought it at a yard sale with no mount plate. Today I was looking for spec's on how far back to mount the plate to the center of the hitching holes. Info is scarce. All I can find is "no more that 34" behind the bumper". Would you mind letting me know how far back from the front bumper you now have it mounting. Don't need to measure it just a rough guess. Thanks!

Unfortunately Ty, I already bought the Power Pivot, and mounted it already. I wish I would have known that the power pivot doesn't last long before I bought it. Costly mistake for sure. Maybe I'll take it off and see if I can either return it, or take a loss on selling it. I'll just put the manual one back on because the Winter is apon us, and I've messed around with this thing on and off since the begining of October. I just want to get plowing. LOL. Maybe come Summer, I'll hook up somethng like what you have going there.

Thanks tythomps, and thanks everyone else for their input too.

Hey speedwagon... Scroll down to the bottom of this page: https://www.kfiproducts.com/kfi-hybrid-atv-plow-mount-and-tube-system-kit.html

Short answer for you is 26 to 34 inches, with my preference at 26 and that's where I have my modified "standard" mount on my Grizzly.



Long and unnecessary explanation:
I definitely wouldn't go any further forward than 26, cause any further forward and you'll get really front end heavy, especially with standard length mid-mount push tubes. And any further back that 34 and you'll be close to having the blade contact the front bumper.

I happened to come upon moving the mount forward as my preference by accident... Got an old cycle country mid mount plow for free, just like you did. Needed a mount for it though for my Rancher 400AT, and all that was available from KFI was their hybrid mount, which mounted 8" further forward compared to the Grizzly standard mount. Liked the additional lift height so much I decided to modify the Grizzly mount to be the same.

And in case you're wondering, the Cycle Country and KFI mid mounts connection to the push tubes are all the same. I have both an old cycle country plow and kfi plow, and a kfi standard mount & kfi hybrid mount, and they all work with each other.

"Speedwagon" now thats funny!

I had calculated (eyeballed) moving the mounts to 28-30". I bought this Griz from a guy that built plows locally so it has a odd ball mount plate on it. I'm planning on welding some new tabs that line up with the plow I have.

Thanks for the link and info!!

95745 was the front mount I was told to go with. It just shipped today so I can't speak for it yet.

95745 is the warn part number. The one I referenced is the yamaha part number. B16 F84Y0-V0-00 The way I listed it is connfusing but the part can be found using either number.
