Question 2017 TRV 500 winch installation

Anybody install an aftermarket (Kolpin) winch on an Arctic Cat Alterra TRV 500?

I have one to put in but I don't have great instructions on pulling off the parts needed to install the winch?

Thanks.

I have a 550 and the winch install was done when new. I would get the Arctic Cat switch for sure so it integrates with all the Arctic Cat controls. I'm currently having a major headache with my Arctic Cat Winch at the moment. Really frustrating.

I am having the same trouble. So far I have learned that the trv 500 is sorta winch ready. My dealer was able to locate some instructions for installing a winch on my ATV. Believe it or not the instruction indicate the winch is installed directly behind the roller fair lead plate using the same 2 bolts for the fairlead! The trouble I am having is being able to get the winch situated where the mounting plate does not come in contact with the fan housing. You pretty much hafta take the front apart to get the darn thing.

I am trying to install a Harbor Freight (Badlands 2500) winch. This winch seems to fit OK however you will hafta buy a different fair lead as the one that comes with the winch has non-standard bolt holes...

I am about at the point of just having the dealer install the darned thing. The instruction I have do not have any web address where they came from. It looks like maybe a service manual. The top of the page reads 3000 lb Eng.fm Page 10

Yes, I bought the Badlands also. I look to start install tomorrow. If it doesn't fit, back it goes!
