Winch Mounting Bolt Pattern

Recommended Posts

This is just an FYI, the 2012 Brute Force 300 4x2 has a Warn winch mounting plate factory installed. Now they say in their website and brochures it accepts warn winches, but no other winches are listed. I am here to tell you that i have mounted a Superwinch LT3000 with no problems at all as far as installation, the Superwinch bolted right up quite nice to the Brute Forces mounting plate. Just an FYI !!! As this is the new Kawasaki Brute Force 300 4x2.

I'm in the process of buying a winch for my 500 Foreman. Why did you choose a Superwinch vs Warn. I'm looking at a 2500#. Your thoughts please.

This is for Wschamp. Bought the Superwinch because i think its a better winch than the the warn. I paid 123.00 for a 3000lb winch from Superwinch @ amazon.com My brand new rt1500 warn was good for only pulling small things out of my way, plus i got stuck and when i needed it to pull myself out it failed, would not even work. My opinion on a Warn is that all your buying is a name, and they are way overpriced 274.00 @ Rockymountain atv. Plus with the Superwinch you get a roller fairlead and a handheld remote. And another factor in my purchase of the Superwinch was i have a friend who has had one for 6 yrs and has had no problems with it. Hope this helps !!

I bought the 3500 Super Winch. I have a 1500 on a 300 Honda that I put on in 1999. I only had to use it about 6 times in that time period and it never let me down. Well satisfied. Paid $199

I ordered from ProMark Off Road online. You"ll need to Google them. What I ordered was: ATV Winch Mount: Honda Foreman 500 2012 WP-1503

And I stand to be corrected. I ordered a Superwinch Terra 25 ATV Winch 2500lb: $199

Aldo, Now this is my opinion ! I think Warn is in with Kawasaki to try and corner the market on aftermarket winch installation/sales ! All i did was compare the mounting pattern from the bike and the Warn winch ! I then went online to Superwinches web site and got their dimensions to see if they matched and they did. I ordered the winch from Amazon.com and paid around 127.00 ( to include shipping ) which is a pretty good deal for a 3000 lb winch. The mounting plate is already on the bike from the manufacturer. I installed mine with no problems at all !! I will post some photos for you to see. Do you like your bike ? I love mine, it has plenty of low - midrange power. Probaly the best 2wd atv if have ever ridden. I can go anywhere i need to go. Kawasaki hit this one out of the park.

winch mount pic

Turn your roller fairlead around so the bolts face down. It looks nicer and if a nut comes off the bolt, the bolt won`t drop out and you won`t lose your roller

easiest way to mount a winch on a quad if you don't have any winch mount or metal to mount a winch is weld a thick peace of metal on your font either frame or bumper of your quad and attach the winch somewhere out of the sun and somewhere were rocks won't get in it or anything else that can damage the winch just remember if you have a 600 puns quad don't get a 700 pound winch get a winch that has a higher load rating then what your quad is get a 1000 puns rated or even a 2000 pound winch and on an tav don't be cheap with you winch it never works out well some winches at even harbor freight for a 1000 one is like 200 are better than some off brand ones for 500 and those types of off brands tend to brake way easier they won't even work with a little bit of dirt ,water ,mud etc

      Bought 2012 Arctic Cat 450 4×4 9 months ago with low miles. It sat in a garage for 2 years, never was rode in those 2 yrs. I buy it put a new battery and change the fluids and it runs like a champ..... until this weekend. Was riding this weekend on my property and all of a sudden heard a noise from crankcase on side. What will happen if your riding it and the drive belt breaks? It still cranks and runs fine just no forward or reverse in 2 wheel or 4 wheel drive. This is my first belt drive wheeler. Didn't know if this had happened to someone and it was the drive belt.(And no I have not took the crank case/side case off yet to see.) Thanks for any help/info anyone can give.

      At 3am a white box trailer hooked to an SUV, color unsure, came to my backyard, cut the cables locking my 4 wheeler in and stole it. It is a 2018 Hunter green Kawasaki Brute Force 750. It has a light bar on the front and 28” Outlaw tires.

      Hi Folks;
      Has anybody on here installed a winch on a 2003 Magnum 2x4? I am using a Cycle Country adapter plate (only one I could find), but am having a bit of trouble getting it all to fit properly, and am looking for someone that may have done this install and/or may have some pics of the installation.
      Thanks!

      My mother has just developed a fairly serious case of sciatica, which is a condition where you have some serious leg pain as the result of a pinched sciatic nerve. One of the exercises she does in physical therapy is simply the therapist holding onto her foot and pulling away from her hips as she lays on her back on a table. To replicate this exercise at home they have recommended an inversion table (where you turn upside down and hang from your feet), but since she's not too keen on this idea I'm trying to figure out how to replicate this exercise...which is where the idea of a remotely operated winch comes in.
      I don't really have a wide range of knowledge when it comes to what equipment is out there that can help me accomplish this goal, but I'm not too shabby at designing things and since I just installed a superwinch on my grizz this is the first idea I've come up with.
      Basically I'm imagining using some kind of winch whose rope would be worked through a pulley system that would end attached to a shoe which Mom would put on, lie down and use the remote switch to gently stretch the leg.
      - Winch (if an ATV winch) would be powered by a 12v car battery hooked up to a trickle charger
      - Safety mechanisms would include...
      - a light switch dimmer inline between the 12v battery and the winch so speed can be adjusted.
      - possibly using one of those stretchy rubber exercise resistance bands in the line segment to regulate and ease the pulling
      - a remote power cut off switch paired with the remote 'in/out' switch
      Honestly I could just go ahead and make this system myself, and I'm fairly sure it would work, but I thought I'd bounce this idea off a mechanically minded community to see if there are any ideas how I could improve on the design.
      Since I'm only familiar with ATV winches at this point that's what I've imagined using. But if anyone is aware of a 110v based winch that would be more appropriate, that would surely help in simplifying powering the system since it'll be located indoors. Only requirement for the winch would be that it would need both an in and out function operated by a remote switch. And since the winch would only need to pull between 10-20 lbs it wouldn't need to be nearly as beefy as the ATV type.
      Sorry for the long write up here but I'm certainly glad for your time and open to your opinions and suggestions.

      Long story short ... I'm installing a winch on a 4 wheeler and need to find a bolt just like this one except it needs to be 1/4" longer.


      Sorry the pics a little out of focus due to distance. It's a 5/16-18 3/4" bolt with a hex head that says E-G 10.9. I searched ebay using the best criteria I could and didn't see anything similar after searching through literally the first 1000 hits.
      I believe the 10.9 expresses a high strength that I'm really not that concerned about. The replacement doesn't need to be as strong.
      Anybody have a suggestion on where I can find something like this? If all else fails I can try to do the connection differently but for now I'm just looking for as close a replacement as possible.

      Putting in a SW Terra 35 and I've decided the crimp I'm looking at here isn't something I can reproduce so I need to figure out who to take this wire to get the end put back on after I get it shortened to where I need it. Never having delt with wires this big I have no idea who I could go to just locally to get this done. What kind of (electrical?) business would deal with stuff like this?
