How is a front mounted winch worthless? My winch got me out after only 5 min of shovelingThose are the type of situations where a winch on the front is next to useless, and you either need a friend with you, a very long winch line and or rope or something else that you can use to attach somewhere, or the winch on the rear.
I got into one of those type of problems one year. The only thing to hook to was some rocks off the the side and behind me. My winch line didn't make it to anything else. I had to run the line up over the front rack to reach the rocks to get myself turned and out of the situation. After that I started to carry 300 feet of mule tape that the company that I worked for used to pull in cables. It was rated at 2400 lbs.
My 2021 Kodiak did not come with "y" wire to plug into the accessory clip. I'm installing a winch and would like to plug in the rocker switch there. Anyone know how to get one? I called a couple Yamaha dealers in my area and they could not help me.No reason to tap the wire, standing in front of the bike looking at the battery compartment, the top left there is an accessory wire with bullet connectors, with an insulated bullet coming off it to use for accessory power. In the bag with your your owners manual, there should be a "y" wire provided by yamaha to plug into that insulated bullet that allows yet another accessory wire.
Also, no need to put your winch contactor up in the battery box, it can be mounted on the winch plate on the provided mounting holes where its supposed to be.

Here is what you need to connect a Y into under the hood so to speak.My 2021 Kodiak did not come with "y" wire to plug into the accessory clip.
