??Winch??

Recommended Posts

IT looks there are 2 grounds going to the battery. Do one of those possibly go to the wench??? (or is my imagination running wild).

you are probably right. The Arctic Cat manual will be in the AC section, I think the manual is the complete 2002 line up. Sorry I have only phone inet here so I can't reply to messages...

The high current leads go directly to the battery for the winch. You should have two cables on each terminal. They will lead down to the direction relay that controls the winch's direction. Attached is the wiring diagram for a typical warn winch.

Well. It kinda sparked and maybe the coating of the wire caught fire. ???? the coating was melted and wire was really hot.

      With this cold snap, I noticed yesterday that the battery on my grizzly was a little weak. even clicked a few times before I got it to start. I'm thinking of picking up a batter tender/ trickle charger so was wondering what people use to keep their ATV battery charged up. I was looking at these on amazon. They both have good reviews.

      Been out of the atv scene for a few years. Just bought a atv. Question I have. Is their anyone who makes a lithium battery for atv's. I only ask because they have them for boats now. Buddy of mine has 2 Dakota's he runs on his. I'd only imagine you can get a really strong battery at half the weight. Any input?

      i am sure some one has switched from the dinky battery to a larger car car battery, so any advice? ive got enough bits and bobs on my atv that i feel i need to step up, i keep a float charger on it but i left it unplugged for about a week and it was dead and it a fairly new battery from advance auto, im probably gonna add a cb radio in the future and i think the only thin that has a constant draw is the clock in the dash and the memory for the stereo

      Hi all, new to this forum so thanks in advance for the help.

      I have recently brought a 2013 power steering fuel injected foreman 500.

      It has a crack in the front casing and was running rough. I have since replaced the front engine casing and this has made no difference to the engine performance.

      It starts and idles but bogs down and starts to die once throttle is applied.

      It maybe be but it also sounds very load.

      I have uploaded a video link of it.

      Hello everyone,
      My Suzuki LT185 didn't come with a battery from the factory (no electric start). I was wondering if I would need to add a battery if I wanted to install some of those light bars/pods or should I just wire it in to the headlight switch? Will the generator be able to put out enough juice to run the light bar? Also, is it normal for the headlight to get dim at idle, then brighter when driving? Never had a quad before with just a generator. 
      Thanks!
