I installed a viper max 2500. Was wondering if anyone else has done this on a 07 foreman. The winch is in the at a angle and is always running on the roller fairhead. The instructions had no pics, but that was the only way for the winch plate to mount. I called the company and they said it was supposed to have a angle. but just looks funny. I always figured it should be a straight shot to the hole.

Look at this post (My new 06 Foreman with AP & ITP (pics), on this website. Notice how his winch is mounted, it is on an angle.

scroll down to the picks and you will see the mounting plate. its the same as the one I have, really put an angle on it. It was very tight in there

I had the same winch and it just died. It lasted about 3 months. I had it wrapped around a light pole to reel the cable back on the drum tight and it quit. It would let cable out once every 5 or 6 tries but would not reel back in. I have probably pulled with it 25 times maybe. Going to install the gorilla tonight. Also the viper would not hold my bike in a tree. It would slowly let it back down.

i got a gorilla winch on my 07 foreman and the mounting plate is at an angle also. the cable runs on the fairlead but no problems yet. i think they make them like that for cosmetic reasons. to kinda follow the curved frontend.
