    Hey guys. Just bought my first ATV a week ago and am absolutely loving it. It's an Outlander Max XT 1000. I thought today I should try using the winch to move a tree from a trail, so I unlocked the winch and walked the cable over to the tree. When I came back, I was unable to lock the winch up...

    I have to replace the winch cable on my 2014 Outlander Max XT. Can I do this by removing the fairlead and working from the front end or do I have to remove the winch from the frame? I was hoping that I don't have to take off all of the front panels to get at the winch. I tried to change the...

    Oh boy am I frustrated! I got the moose plow kit and after removing the plastic skid plate, was able to mount and get that going on my 2012 Renegade 1000 (non-xxc). Took 3 hours to install, mount, etc. Then bought the KFI G2 renegade mount bracket and a KFI S2000 winch. Bracket worked fine...

    I took my Renegade 800r out to plow yesterday, it was dark so I had the lights on and when I hit the winch button the lights dimmed pretty bad, but started to brighten back up after the initial surge in amperage for the winch. I could put it in neutral and rev the engine everytime but how much...
