Mike, About installing a winch on your efi. Installing a kit is pretty straight foreward, but not simple because of the re-inforcing bow, added plates inside and outside where the bow meets the winch etc. The wiring requires a switch on the handlebar tied to the ignition switch. You may want the remote switch receiver and the little antennea that hides under the dash in the engine bay. If you go that far you may as well run the wires and quick disconnect to alow the winch to be used front and rear. Argos' kit comes with instructions written in English and lots of pictures, no prob. really. But somebody asked about FABRICATING their own mount, that is another kettle of fish unless you have a kit to copy, I can,t see how a guy could get it right. If you do the rear mount winch thing,after you have fished in the mud to get at the winch,I can send you a picture of a rear high mount off of the hitch. happy Riding
