[0:00] What’s up guys? Are you looking for more storage capacity, or maybe somewhere to store your drinks, food, and whatever you take with you on the trail? SuperATV has you covered with our Cooler/Cargo Box for the Honda Pioneer 1000-5 and today we’ll show you how to install one.
The first thing we’ll do is let the tailgate down. We’re working on a 1000-5 so we’ll open up the rear door as well, just to give us a little more room to work with.
We’ll be working on the driver’s side. You can do this on the passenger side as well—it’s the same concept. We’ll remove the following three screws: this one, as well as this one, and the front corner.
We’ve already loosened our screws, just to speed up the install a little bit. We’ll take them right out and set them aside.
[1:02] It’s always handy to have a couple extra OEM screws. Then we’ll take our bracketry and take one of our shims. Line it up with the provided hardware and we’ll start this. We’re not going to fully tighten anything just yet.
Rotate this so it sits just like that. Then we’ll take our next shim and install it, then install the hardware loosely, just like we did on the opposite side.
Take the only vertical bracket in the kit and install it to this location. First, obviously, lay down the shim and start the hardware, just like we did for the other two brackets.
Like I said, we’re just starting it. I may run these down a little bit, that way it doesn’t take me as long to tighten them when we’re all done. But we definitely want to move them freely.
[2:00] Now I’m going to take my cooler/cargo box and install it to the machine.
Get it in position. In the hardware kit, you’ll have a thumb screw and a flat washer and a lock washer. Take the lock washer and put it against the thumb screw, then the flat washer. Line them up and thread them all the way up there.
We’ll continue doing this for all the holes. Don’t fully tighten your thumb screws yet. Just install them all first.
[2:42] Then we’ll come back and fully tighten all of them. Again, this will work for either side. Like I previously stated, you could flip it around and do the exact same thing on the passenger side.
We just chose the driver’s side, and the hardware is in the same location. The only thing is, it would be this screw and this one and the one in the front corner.
Come over to this vertical bracket. Take our screws and these are the last two. We’re going to fully tighten these here. Snug them up pretty good by hand. You can’t really over-tighten them by hand, so just get them as tight as you can with your hands.
[3:22] Now we’ve gone through and fully tightened all of our hardware. We have our cooler/cargo box installed. If you have a five-seater you can still flip up one of your rear seats, so you still have four of your five seats in your machine.
And obviously, you have your cargo box over here. You can’t flip it up to utilize the seat but with the thumb screws, you can remove it really quickly and easily with no problem.
So there you have it! Now you’re ready to hit the trails. If you have any other questions on this Cooler / Cargo Box or any of SuperATV’s great products, feel free to give us a call or check us out online. Thanks for watching and we’ll catch you next time.
