I think the " calculation " is 3 times the weight of you and your bike added up... From what I hear. That or use a tackle and loop it and then back to your bike before you pull. Apparently doubles the pullin' power.
My bro-in-law has pulled my Foreman out of deep, sloppy mud with his 1500 Warn on a Recon!! I have the 2500 Warn and it has plenty of power to do the job.
Like was mentioned earlier, use a snatch-block...it doubles the pulling power if you are in doubt. There is a kit that has a tree saver, snatch-block, and other little odds and ends for around $50 that is well worth it.
I have a 2500lbs on mine. Works great. But I heard that a snatch block will take less amp draw and double the power. I bought one and 2000lbs turned into 4000lbs and I love every bit of it. You can get a snatch block off of ebay for less then $25.00 ship to your door
