Winch mounting 2016 400
« on: April 18, 2017, 06:31:26 PM »
I just bought a 2016 CF MOT 400. I have a winch, jut have some questions to help finish the install. Can anyone help me out with what size the bolts need to be for the fairing mount? Also it needs to have a wire to go to the ignition, which wire is the best to hook into. Thank you in advance!

Should be a nut and bolt. I think I used 8mm last time I did one, but just use the biggest that will fit. Use hardened bolts, grade 8, so they don't break easy.

I just measured my 2021 400 to fit a Harbor Freight winch on it.
The winch mount on the ATV has 4 holes with centers making a rectangle 9-3/8" wide by 2-3/16" high.
The winch holes are smaller than 7/16" diameter, bigger than 27/64" diameter, therefore close to 11mm diameter, not threaded.
The fairlead mount has 2 holes about 4-15/16" apart, close to 125mm center to center.
Those holes have threaded inserts that fit standard M10 bolts.

The Harbor Freight 2500 pound winch has only 2 holes 2-15/16" apart, vertically near the centerline of the drum.
The HF fairlead holes are closer together than the CF Moto mount, maybe they are 120mm apart.
I think I can cut slots from the edge of the HF fairlead plate to its holes and make a custom washer to hold it.
I bought 1-1/2 by 3/16 angle-iron. I'm planning to crop 2 angles to fit into the 5-3/4" gap between the CF mounts.
I'll post again when I know how it works.
