  2. I know this is an old topic. However I felt I should give an update. First let me say, in no manner, shape, or form am I in any way connected to or affiliated with Viper. I just wanted to give some feedback to Quad Crazy members for all the good advise I've gotten here. The viper winch is STILL going strong. I can't count how many times it's saved this old guys butt. (I'm now 68 yrs old) . Also I'm glad I got a 3500lb I wouldn't get anything smaller.
  3. "....any future plans for the atv???" Only future plans for it right now is to hopefully take a few deer out of the woods with it ! And perhaps a plow.
  4. Ajmboy, I paid $185.24 total from Moto Alliance web site. I called first to make sure it would fit and asked for the 5% discount. They were very helpfull and curtious. It arrived in about 4 or 5 days. I don't have any pictures, but it's snuggled away and still easy to get at for free spooling. It will hang my bike from a tree, and will pull trees out by the roots or break them off if I hook too high on them. It's already paid for itself twice pulling me out of muck holes in the swamp that were deeper than I thought. I'm very pleased with it.
  5. I want to thank everyone for the winch advise and suggestions. I ended up with a Viper 3500lb. The instalation wasn't to bad considering I've never installed one before. The wires were all color coded and their web site was very helpfull. I mounted a toggle switch under the seat so a kid or a novice rider can't accidently engage the winch. The winch works great and has way more power than I'll ever need. Any more power and I think it would stretch the frame. The only negative issue, and it's very minor; is the steel cable is a little too long. I'll be cutting off about 5 or 6 feet because it tends to bind up in the spool when almost fully spooled unless it's spooled perfecty even. Again, this is no big deal, the winch works great. Thanks again to everyone who took time to respond when I asked for help.
  6. I never thought of putting it there. Thanks BuckBilly, I'll look into that.
  7. :confused:2007 honda forman 500, viper max 3500 winch. I have it bolted in and all the heavy duty wires routed where they need to go. My problem is where to hook up the small red wire that comes off the toggle switch wire harness. Some recomend putting it on the back of the key switch but I really don't want to dissasemble the dash to do this. Can anyone tell me if there is a place on my forman that is easier to get at that will work for the power scource for the switch? I prefer not to "cut into" a wire but will if I have no other option. Also where all do you put fuses ? My winch came with none. Please help ! Struggling in Michigan
  8. I know I can't be the only person that has this problem, so I'm hoping someone else has found a solution. After only about 10 minutes riding on my honda foreman my thumb starts to cramp. After 15 or 20 minutes it's either numb or in pain. In cold weather my thumb is frozen. I did put on a thumb throttle extension and that helped just a little. I've seen some twist grip throttles but am not sure how well they work or which one to get, or how complicated it is to install them. Please give me some direction and advise. Thank you, Numb Thumb in Michigan
  9. I have a 2007 honda foreman 500 and want to put a winch on it. The winch will be used to raise and lower a plow some, but mainly in the woods when I get stuck or pulling small trees. I'm looking for advise and suggestions as to the size,name brand, and places to buy on-line. Also looking for what to look for and what to look out for in a winch. I have heard that some switches burn out fast. Thank you for all your help.
  10. I have a 2007 honda rancher es. I'm looking to put a winch on it and would like any recomendations or advise as to brand name, size, and where to buy it online. It will be used mostley in the woods when stuck or moving downed trees. Thanks for any help you can give.
