Video Transcript for Superwinch LT2000 ATV Winch Installation - 2012 Polaris 500 Sportsman

Today on our 2012 Polaris Sportsman 500 we'll be installing the Superwinch LT2000 2,000 Pound 12-Volt DC Electric Winch. This is part number 1120210. Now with this winch we'll also need to use a mount kit, part number 2202900 for this Polaris. We're going to go ahead and mount our winch to the mounting kit first. Now we'll need to identify the top of the mount plate. This is easily done by locating the cutout here on the angled part of the mount plate.As we install the winch into the mount plate we'll ensure that the cable spools off the top of the drum and that this cutout is on the top side of the bracket.

Now with that done we'll place our rear support plate into position where we'll take two of the 5/16 x 3/4 inch Hex bolts from the winch kit as well as the two flat washers, two lock washers and the nuts and we'll secure them together through the center mounting points on either side.With that done we'll go ahead and tighten them down using a wrench and ratchet. With both bolts tight our mounting plates and winch are secured together. We can go ahead and mount the fairlead. The fairlead is where the winch cable will pass through allowing the cable to move freely without binding up. We'll need to pass the cable through the fairlead.

You may need to loosen up the lower roller in order to do so.With a ratchet and wrench we'll undo the bolt, slide the roller out of the way, pass the cable through, putting the roller back in place and tightening down the bolt and nut. Don't make this too tight because you do want the roller to move freely. We'll mount the fairlead to the main winch mount plate. We'll position it where we can then pass the 3/4 inch bolt through both brackets and we'll put a nut on the other side.Our entire assembly is complete and we're ready to mount it to the ATV. Here at our ATV we'll slide the winch into position here in the hole that we found after removing the black plastic cover from the ATV.

This cover is removed by simply undoing the four torqued bit bolts, two on the upper and two on the lower to get it out of the way. Our winch is positioned and you'll see in the frame of the ATV bolt holes already pre-drilled for us.We can now use the remaining four 3/4 inch bolts, pass them through the holes that were pre-drilled in the frame and into the rear support plate of our winch. With all four bolts in position we'll go ahead and tighten them down. Now that they're tight our winch is secured to the ATV and we're ready to wire it up. We're not permanently installing this winch onto this ATV.

However during this video we will show you what wires connect where as well as a good location to mount the switch and the switch box for the winch.We'll now move to the top of the ATV where we'll remove the seat. With the seat removed we can move to the driver's side of our ATV here at the rear fender and looking underneath you'll see the battery. You'll also see where the positive battery terminal connects to our battery. We'll need to go ahead and undo that and remove the positive terminal. With that done we'll need to locate the pre-wiring that Polaris put into the ATV for a winch.This wire is red in color and is approximately the same size as the battery positive cable. We'll now route that cable up towards the battery, bring it out to where the positive battery terminal is here on the driver's side rear fender where we can then leave it as is to be hooked up later. We'll now move back toward the front of the ATV where we'll open the front hatch, remove the rubber seal, undo these four torques bolts and take out the center plastic trim here. This will expose the radiator cap as well as all the wiring here underneath the headlight.These two orange wires here from the Polaris are both ignition source voltage. Keep that in mind as we will need to tap into one of those two wires at a later time. We'll now take the solenoid box and mount it. You'll notice in the bottom here of the compartment are two drain grommets. We'll go ahead and remove those grommets that work very nicely to pass the red and black wires for both the battery positive and negative as well as the winch positive and negative cables through.At this point you would want to go ahead and screw the solenoid box into the body of the ATV but again because we're not installing this permanently on to our ATV we're just going to go ahead and place it using a piece of double-sided tape to show you what it would look like mounted. You'll want to make sure the box is low enough so that when the lid closes it doesn't come in contact interfering with the way that the lid would latch.We now have our four wires down here underneath the driver's side front fender. Just for demonstration purposes we're going to go ahead and remove this inner fender liner just to give you a little more visibility. When installing yours you may not need to do this. The two long black and red wires are the wires that would connect to the winch. The shorter wires are the wires that will connect to battery voltage as well as your negative ground.Now with the pre-wiring here on our Polaris we'll go ahead and take the two short wires and using the circuit breaker we'll connect the two ends of the wires together. Now remember when connecting the circuit breaker in you do want to keep the copper side of the breaker toward the battery and the aluminum side of the breaker toward the winch. This will ensure the correct operation of your circuit breaker.Now with that done you'll want to tape it back up and ensure that it won't come in contact with any metal objects as that could cause a short. Now we'll connect the two black wires with the bolt through the ring terminals although because this is not a permanent install we'll not be doing that. Now the longer two wires we'll connect to the winch. Because our solenoid box is mounted up front these wires are especially long.If we we're mounting this to the vehicle permanently I would cut these wires to fit where I could then attach it to the winch. Now that we have them attached to the winch and our battery's connections made we can go ahead and reinstall the inner fender liner making sure that we keep the wires tucked away nicely. We'll move back up here where we'll need to install the operation switch.The switch is designed to be mounted in various positions depending on comfort. We'll locate a suitable position here on the handlebars and attach it. This will give us plenty of room to operate the switch as well as leave clearance while we're operating our ATV and having fun. We can then route the wiring down through the headlight assembly and into this space. We'll continue routing the wiring through and down the main harness where you'll take the red wire here and attach it to one of those two orange wires we talked about earlier.Now this connection will just ensure that the winch will only operate when the key is in the on position. Now that we've made that connection we'll continue routing our harness down underneath following the main harness of the ATV until we reach the underside of the front carriage compartment. We'll then go and locate the other black plastic grommet where we'll remove the grommet and pass the remaining harness back up through it.Now in the compartment we'll locate the green wire and the black wire from the solenoid box and connect the green wire from our harness to the green wire on the solenoid box as well as the black wire from our harness to the black wire of our solenoid box. Now that we've done all that we'll go ahead and just make sure that the harness is tucked away where we can re-assemble our ATV and that completes our installation of the Superwinch LT2000 ATV Winch, part number 11020210 in Conjunction with the Superwinch ATV Winch Mount Kit, part number 2202900 on our 202 Polaris Sportsman 500.

by: Ed S.04/08/2014

I installed the Superwinch LT 2000 on a 2007 Honda Rancher and also the mounting kit # 2202889. The install went well. I had never put a winch on an ATV before. The video on etrailer was very helpful and would have been difficult to install without it. The instructions that come with the winch and the mount kit are minimal. I found the electrical wire length to be enough as I mounted the solenoid right behind the battery under the seat. The pink wire on the ignition was what I used to tap into to run the switch. 124317

i like the 2000 super winch but i need to no if it comes with wiring and remote switch or do i need to get them here to let me know thank.s gene r

comment by: gene r - 01/02/2014


Wiring, circuit breaker and remote are all included with the winch. You may need additonal wiring if you are mounting it on the rear of a vehicle and you may need a mounting plate, but this will depend on the application.

  • Troubleshooting Contactor/Solenoid on 12V Powered Winch
  • The direction of the winch operation, in or out, is determined by which of two solenoid contacts is connected to the 12V power input from the battery. If the winch operates only in one direction you can first try checking that all connections are solid and free from corrosion. Next you can do a bypass test to see whether the problem is in the switch or solenoid. Take a jumper wire from the battery +12V and touch it to the green wire on the solenoid. The winch should operate in one direction....

  • Using Bumper Winch as Hoist
  • I would be very leery about using a bumper winch for this purpose. These winches are designed to pull, not lift. We offer a Crane Winch, part # 03002 that would work for this purpose, but it would need 12-volt DC power to work. I believe your best bet would be to find you a 110V electric hoist with sufficient capacity for the barrels and cases of soda.

  • Can Superwinch LT2000 ATV Winch be Wired Using a Factory Fuse on a 2014 Polaris Sportsman 400
  • I strongly recommend using the circuit breaker since it will auto reset unlike a fuse that would blow and would have to be replaced. Also the winch # 1120210 was designed to be wired up using the circuit breaker and not for use with a fuse. I have linked the instructions and a video showing an installation of the winch for you.

  • How to Extend the Wiring of a LT200 Superwinch # 1120210 on a 2005 Yamaha Wolverine 350 FX
  • The best way to extend the wiring would be to get 10 Gauge Blue Primary Wire, part # 10-1-1, to extend the wiring and then use a 12-10 Gauge Butt Connector, part # 05732-2, to connect the wires. And then finally wrap the connection with Electrical Tape, part # BT66. That should give you the additional 12 inches you would need to connect your Superwinch LT2000 ATV Winch, part # 1120210, to your 2005 Yamaha Wolverine 350 FX. I attached installation instructions for the # 1120210 below.

What you can do is use a circuit tester like # 3808 if needed to locate the correct wire. The correct wire will only show power when the key is in the on position. You could also follow the wire to the starter motor and see if it separates out to 2 wires and test those wires. Bascially the only way to know for sure which wire to connect to would be to test the wires with a circuit...

It will be up to you to determine where of those locations would work the best for you. I would probably try in the area where the battery is first as that would probably be the easiest.

  • How Many Turns of the Handle Equal One Drum Revolution on Dutton-Lainson Winch DL24844
  • The gear ratio of winch # DL24844 would be 18.75 turns of the handle for one complete revolution of the drum. You could say that one revolution of the drum is 3-1/8 inches and that would be 288 turns of the handle for 4 feet. You might be able to adapt the wheel to the winch but it hasn't been tested with that type of apparatus so I cannot guarantee that it will work. And you are correct it would be less revolutions and easier to turn. There are other electric winches you could use....

  • My Winch Trips the Circuit Breaker and the Wires Heat Up After a Few Seconds of Use
  • It sounds like there is a short somewhere. That is what usually causes the breaker to trip and wires to heat up. The first step I would take is to inspect all of the wiring. Make sure there are no damaged sections of wires or contacts touching each other that should not be touching. The next step would be to determine which winch you have. The short could be internal, in the switch or winch, so we will want to determine which winch you actually have to see what replacements parts are...

If mounted in the back it would really be a stretch. It does have a single line capacity of 2,000 pounds, so pulling a 950 pound boat should not be a problem.

  • Can a Superwinch Electric Winch be Used on a 1987 Kawasaki KLF 300 Bayou 2x4
  • The closest winch mount for a Kawasaki KLF 300 Bayou is for a 1989 model. There is no listing for a 1987. If your ATV has a 2 inch trailer hitch receiver, you could use the Portable Receiver Mount, # 1559B. The Superwinch Electric Winch, # 1120210, is designed to run off of a 12 volt system. If your Bayou uses a 12 volt system it can handle the power draw of the winch. However, if is a good idea to only power in/out the line in short increments of time so the system does not get overloaded....
