Foggy. Thanks for the update.
The Honda winch kit comes with longer then normal cables and a clamp to mount the contactor.

But you just saved $200 doing it your way. It was well worth the trouble and time for sure.

Well, I got it done…..and everything works like it should. Seems like a neat install. I put the hand-held remote "outlet" up on the cowl above the hood. Hope that works out well. I don't; think you could pay me enough to be a full-time UTV tech/mechanic. Too many confined areas and hard to work-around with some of this stuff. Maybe it's just me…..but the guys that engineer this stuff could make things more user friendly.

FOr example. THey gotta know that folks are gonna put a winch no these machines. How about having a "knock-out" location for the hand held remote? It's not rocket surgery. :D

It's not just Honda……sadly, I think they are all the same. Glad I'm past some of the mounting issues. :)

Thanks Hondasas. Glad I saved some bus…..but it sure beat the heck outta my hands…..and I got pretty surly at the end. Some of those areas are hard to work in. The clamp and longer cables would have saved the day IMO. But $200 is a nice savings. Not sure which I would pick if doing it again….lol.

Reaon I did not mount the contractor under the hood was that I am waiting on a heater…..and I was very concerned that the contractor may interfere with the heater install. My luck…..it woulda been in the wrong location. ;)
