[0:00] Hey there! Here’s how to install a SuperATV Cooler/Cargo Box on this Yamaha Wolverine RMAX 1000.
For this installation, there will be two separate ways of mounting your cargo box on your RMAX. There is the center mounting, as well as the side mounting. We’re going to show you both, but we’ll start with center mounting.
For the center mounting, grab both of the rear brackets. These will go right here. Line them up with the factory-threaded holes in the bed of the machine.
Then we’ll grab four of our M6 x 20 Allen-headed screws. Go right through the bracket and line it up with a threaded hole. We’ll just hand tighten these a little bit.
Leave them a little loose until we can confirm that our cargo box is in the correct location, then we can go ahead and snug them down. We just want to get them down where the heads are touching but we still have a little bit of movement. It should be snug, but you can still rotate it around.
[0:58] Now come over to the opposite side and do the exact same thing. Then we’ll take our cargo box and slide it into position. Take a thumb screw for each side. Remember, we’re just mocking this up right now.
Make sure everything lines up good. We’ll tighten one side up and then come over here.
Alright, once it’s tight and our cargo box is looking straight, we’ll carefully remove our thumb screws. Set them right here in the bed. Do that for both sides.
Then we’ll remove our cargo box and move it to the side. I’m just going to put one hand on my bracket to make sure it doesn’t rotate when I tighten it. I’ll crank them down here and fully tighten them.
[2:12] Then we’ll go ahead and take the front bracket out of the kit. Do the same thing—just run these down to where they touch and you still have some movement.
Let’s take our cargo box again and lay it into place. Go through and put our screws in the rear again. We’ll put one up in the front and one in the back, on this side.
Once they’re all started and everything is snug, and we know all the brackets are going to line up, I’ll remove all three of the thumb screws again. Grab our cargo box—lift it straight out.
[3:46] Hold the bracket in place and fully tighten the hardware. Take the cargo box and line it back up, then you want to make sure you have a lock washer and a flat washer on your thumb screw. Then go in and fully install all of the hardware for the thumb screws. Fully tighten it.
Once you’ve done that, you’re good to go for the center installation.
[4:20] Now we’ll show you how to side mount your cargo box. You’ll want to get your crossbar, as well as one of your rear brackets. Then get four Allen-headed screws and four Nyloc nuts.
We’re going to attach our crossbar to our rear bracket. Just pop all four of our Allen-headed screws through. Then we’ll take our Nyloc nuts and start those. After that, go through and fully tighten all of our Allen-headed screws.
[5:41] At this point, you need to decide whether you’re going to mount your cargo box on the passenger side or the driver’s side. We’re going to mount ours on the passenger side, so we’re going to use these two threaded holes right here.
Line the bracket up and take the M6 Allen-headed hardware. Start it, and then we’ll do the same thing here that we did previously. I’m going to run the hardware down until it touches, but we still want to be able to move our bracketry around if we need to make any adjustments.
[6:20] Next we’re going to take our cargo box and slide it into the machine. Come over here to the bed, and you’ll have this little tab. Take a screwdriver and pop it up. Take a T30 torx and remove the torx screw. Take the spacer provided in the kit and lay it right there, then take bracket B.
We’re going to line it up and then grab our thumb screws, making sure they are configured like so. You have a lock washer first, then a flat. We’ll go around and start all of our hardware. Make sure everything lines up.
[7:26] Then we can go ahead and fully tighten the front bracket here. Remove all of the thumb screws again. Then we’re going to fully tighten our hardware for our rear bracket. Put the cargo box in and then install all of the thumb screws.
At this point, we will be fully tightening them. Once you’ve fully tightened all of your thumb screws, that’s all there is to it!
