  2. This has been a time consuming task... So to help out the next guy who has a Kodiak or Bruin, I think 1999 - 2004, could be wrong. But here are the parts you need to add a plow to your bike: Superwinch 2202855 Mount Kit - You will need to get a Roller Fairlead. This kit does not come with one. There is one which comes with the winch, but you will have to cut the holes because the holes will not line up with the Superwinch Mount Kit. This is the worst part of the install. Get a hammer and bring a lot of patients. It is difficult to align holes for the mount with the frame and the ATVs push bars. The mount is a very tight fit for sliding over the frame mount, then the bumper bar attaches to the mount to the frame using the bolts in the hardware kit. Warn 62100 Plow Base - It has to be this one because of the age of the bike. The newer model plow bases are to wide and will not mount to the bike. Warn 64670 Yamaha ATV Plow Mounting Kit - This is specific for the bike. I had mine mounted in about twenty minutes. WARN 68200 ATV Cyclone Angled Plow Blade - I did the 60" blade so I could get the largest cut and funnel it from the bike. Warn 67870 ATV Plow Blade Control Flap - I added this to keep as much snow as possible off of me. The blade was not made to accept this. But the mounting hardware is included and I was able to drill the blade and install the rubber in ten minutes. Warn 69212 Cyclone Blade Premium Skids - I ordered extra of these. There is a pair which came with the blade. These drag on the road and I figure they will wear quickly with the weight of the blade resting on them then dragging the asphault. I went with a 2000 pound winch. I won't comment on that. A winch is pretty much a winch if you are only going to use it to lift and lower the blade a few inches. The winch itself is really easy to install. The worse part was pulling off the bike's tupperware to route the wires out of site. Hope this helps. Good Luck, you will need it when installing the winch mount.
  3. I should have done a How To, to help out the next guy who attemps this. The Plow mount is installed. It was fairly easy. The winch mount which came with the winch is a POS and doesn't mount properly to the ATV. But that's OK, I have the Yamaha Kodiak 400 mount coming. The poor UPS guy... That plow blade is heavy. The box was torn and screws were missing... On my way to ACE in the morning. I bought the top flap to keep the snow off of me. I will install it tomorrow.
  4. Everything arrived today with the exception of the plow base... Next week. As heavy as the 60" plow blade is, I need a 2000 pound wench to move it around the garage to the ATV. I hope a 400cc ATV will push it full of snow.
  5. In early 2004 my wife just had to have an ATV. She wanted the blue 2004 model. But I found two 2003, which are the same bike new in a dealership for about 1500.00 less each. Because anything I get my wife wants one, too and vice versa. So, I bought two for 9K a green one and a tan one. At the time we lived in FL and had a grove in the back yard and Croom 1000 feet away. I would actually ride mine, more for driving through the grove with a garden trailer, to manage the trees. Hers just sat around collecting dust. I put them up for sale this past summer and sold hers for 2500.00. When I say it looked like brand new... The guy who bought it was very happy. Need I say more. I use mine here to haul concrete bags down the mountain side. Or haul firewood off of the mountain. A snow plow would be just fun winter play that could make my neighbors happy.
  6. Thanks. For the help. I just pulled the trigger. The total was 568.00 Wench Plow blade mount Plow Blade ATV mount Wench Mount Blade skids Snow control flap My neighbors are worth 600.00, but not much more than that. Besides, it might put me in better graces with them since seven months out of the year my friends are racing sportbikes in front of their houses.
  7. Wow! they are really proud of that. I just peiced together all the parts I need to do a plow and I am at 518.00 shipped. That is a 60" Warn angled with a 2000LB wench and all of the mounting hardware.
  8. The weather has been terrible here the last few days and I am watching my neighbors struggle to get out. I have a 2003 Kodiak that I have owned since new and hardly have a use for it. So I was thinking about putting a blade on it and using it to push the road clear for my neighbors. What have you guys found to be the best setup? I was thinking: Wench 60-72 inch angled blade What else might I need. Does anyone have part numbers and/ or links to the parts? Thanks for the help and consideration.
