  3. Winch hook stop

    Winch and Recovery
    Came across this a few years ago. Use a Kong dog toy (small) as a winch hook stop to protect your fairlead. It's softer than the plastic puck stops so there's some forgiveness if you winch in a little too tight. Plus, being a Kong product, they are tough. They get chewed up by the hook, rope...

    Winch and Recovery
    Hi Everyone, This is my first post but have used this forum for a lot of great info! As the title says, the hole alignment on the Kawasaki Winch mount plate is too narrow for the roller fairlead of the Warn Vantage 4000lb to fit. (Fairlead is way to wide). Has anyone come across this issue...
  6. Front Bumper Questions???

    General Teryx Discussion
    I'm thinking very hard about getting the EMP Front bumper for my 2011 Teryx. Has anyone had any issues with overheating with the winch being on top?? Also, it does say that the front cover doesn't open up all the way, depending on winch and the size. Can anyone tell me if this is an issue as...
  7. Superwinch install (2015 Teryx4 LE)

    How - To
    NOTES: I choose not to use the "handle-bar" switch. I also will replace the cheap circuit breaker (included with the winch) with a Bussmann (CB185-100) 100 Amp Type III Circuit Breaker. This can be reset instead of being replaced. I will be adding more pics as I wrap-up the install. 1)...
  8. Warn vs Viper winch questions

    Winch and Recovery
    I am looking into winches. It would be mostly used for adjusting a plow, but may be used for recovery or other uses. Since the Teryx (2 seater) weighs in at ~1400#s plus gear and fluids what amount of pull is necessary? Since recovery is low on the list of uses, I don't mind using a snatch...
  9. Winch Plate

    How - To
    Can anyone tell me the best winch plate for a 2013 base Teryx? I'm installing a Badlands 5000# winch. The winch came with a mounting plate but nothing lines up with the factory plate. Thanks
  10. Winch Brand Options (and size?)

    Winch and Recovery
    I'm ready to pick up a winch now. I've been torn between throwing a come-a-long in the back vs. shelling out bucks for a winch, and think I need to go with the winch. On my ATV, I have a Warn winch. They have a great name for themselves as being reliable and well built. But of course, there...

  12. Winch Questions

    Winch and Recovery
    Can anyone help me ? I just purchased a 2010 Teryx and am now looking at a winch, found 1 on Ebay (Venom) and decided that after all the reviews on here that this is the brand but here's my Q. The company says that they recommend a 4500 lb winch, I am looking at the 2500 or 3000 lb. What size do...
