My Impressions:

Pros:
X15 comes pre-wired and ready for installation.

Supplied mount specific to ATV.

Standard with Synthetic line.

Included rigging strap.

Cons:
None.

Bottom Line:
You may say, what do we need a winch on a sport atv for, right. I have never seen a sport atv stuck, yup.

We will be using our Yamaha Raptor 700R for not only Sand Dunes riding, but for riding all over the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Theses trails can be dusty, muddy, bumps, and what not, and you do get hung up or stuck.

I highly recommend installing a Warn Winch on your sport atv if you drive in areas like we do. You will never know when you might have to haul out your Utility ATV partner out, that is stuck up to their ears in Michigan muck.

Note: Mount will be slightly different with the finished atv project.
We are adapting the DG Bumper to fit the warn Winch.
