Winch Mount???

I have a 06' Foreman 500 S and I am looking at buying a winch. I can get a great deal on a mounting plate for a 01'-04' but I am not sure if it would also work on an 06'. Can someone tell me if there is a difference in the frame or front setup between 04' and 06'?

Yup, pretty sure its different. Get the right one, they have the years split for a reason.

2.5 Warn winch
2" Perfex long travel lift kit
High Lifter springs
26-11-12 Sedona Ripsaws on rear
26-9-12 Sedona Ripsaws on front
Douglas Rattlesnake rims
3rd Headlight switch
Moose Heated Handgrips and thumb warmer
Replaced the stock silver engine covers and front skid plate with 07 camo black and painted front brush guard black

Thats sort of what I thought, thanks. This Cycle Country mounting plate HONDA FOREMAN 500 WINCH MOUNT CYCLE COUNTRY WARN NIB 40 | eBay
fits an 06' Foreman but says it doesn't come with the roller fairlead. I am buying a Warn 25XT and it has a roller fairlead. I assume the one that comes on the winch is the only fairlead I need, correct? Just want to be sure before I order it.

Should be but make sure it says roller fairlead and not roller fairlead mount, two different things.

You can look at this site and at the bottom it tells you the mount specific to the year. This will give you an idea of what should work as far as year.

https://motoalliance.com/Site.Store....Details&id=142

Here is the text from Viper that shows the different years that their specific mounts fit.

Foreman - MA11905
  • 2002 & older TRX 400 4x4
  • 2003 & older TRX 450ES 4x4
  • 1998-2004 TRX 450S 4x4

Foreman - MA11911

  • 2007-2011 Foreman models
  • 2007-2009 TRX 500
  • Please Note: Max 3000 will not work as the terminals interfere with the frame - all other sizes fit

Foreman - MA11914

  • 2005-2006 TRX 500 2x4, 4x4 - Manual & ES


Foreman - MA11920 - COMING SOON

  • 2012 Foreman TRX 500

I believe the roller fairlead mounts to the winch, not the plate and comes with the XT25. It should be the only one you need.

Yep, your right. The fairlead will come with the winch when you buy it.

i bought the cycle country for my bike but it would not fit due to the power steering computer next to the engine computer. i still have the mounting plate from cycle country and no were to use it. i ended up getting one off ebay cheaper then my dealer. so make sure you have the right model numbers.
