I have a new 07 Foreman that I bought last month. The bike is used for hunting and field work and I really don't have a need for a winch where I ride now. I really liked the looks of Robb's custom tow hook but didn't want to weld on the brand new bike just yet. After looking at how various winch plates mount, I came up with a way to mount a clevis without permanently altering the bike. I used 3/4" square stock and U-bolts to mount to the front frame. The U-bolts only hold the square stock in place and any pulling would be directly against the frame/guard. Since the piece I added is only 12" long, I don't think it will bend easily but time will tell. This set up should do fine for my needs but could easily be beefed up with 1" stock and a larger clevis and bolt if needed. Just another option for your consideration.
