[0:00] Have you ever been stranded on the trail without a spare tire? Now SuperATV has got you covered with a Heavy-Duty Spare Tire Carrier for the Honda Pioneer! Today we’re going to show you how to install it. So let’s get to it!
First, we’ll take our clamps and line them up on the cage like this. Start our screws and then do the same thing on the other side. We’ll line our clamps up here.
[0:55] Next, we’ll grab the right side portion of the spare tire carrier. It should look just like this and will say “SuperATV” on it. We’ll grab all four of our bushings that have the M12 bolt and install them into the right side of the mount. You can use a rubber mallet.
Also, you can tell which bushing is going to be different because it’ll have the bigger lip. In the bushing pack there will be four, all separated.
You just want to make sure you fully seat all of the bushings. Like I said, you can use the rubber mallet and they’ll slide in there pretty easily. It shouldn’t take much force a all.
[1:50] So there we have it—we’ve installed all four of the bushings.
Now we’re going to lay it up here onto our mount. Then we’ll take our M12 bolts and drop them down through each of these holes.
After that, I’ll start my M12 nuts (provided in the hardware kit) on the bottom. Then we’ll make sure our clamps are centered and both facing straight out, toward the back. Finally, go through and tighten them in an X pattern.
Now we’ll grab the left side portion of the spare tire carrier and attach it to the right side. Let’s grab our smaller clamps. We’ve already removed all the screws from them so now we just have to lay it up here and slide our clamp on.
[3:22] If you’re working on this by yourself, make sure you grip this clamp as tight as you can and keep it held in place. I like to get two of them started, that way it holds itself in place.
If you have somebody to help you, it makes this a lot easier. You won’t have to struggle nearly as much.
Next, line these up with the top side.
[4:29] After that, start your hardware. Once you have all four of your screws started, go through and fully tighten the hardware.
Next we’ll grab the last clamp on our kit and attach it to the cage, just like we did on the opposite side. Lay it here and we’ll just leave our hardware loose until we need it.
[5:00] Now we’re gonna grab our bushings for this side. It will be the last two bushings in the kit. Grab a rubber mallet and just tap it into place, then do the same thing down here for the bottom side.
After that we’ll take our pin and slide it through. Get it all lined up until everything looks good.
Again, fully tighten all of our hardware for our clamps on both sides. Fully tighten these bolts and then we’ll move onto the next step.
Next we’ll grab the rest of our hardware from the hardware kit—it’ll be the bolts and nuts. Take this plate and put it into position. There will be four holes on the top and then two on the bottom.
Put your nuts on the back side. Install all of these bolts. Make sure you have them all started and then, again, go through and fully tighten the hardware.
Make sure to fully tighten all of your hardware. Finally, install your spare tire with the provided lug nuts that we send. Take your cotter pin and install it.
And there you have it! That’s how super quick and easy it is to install SuperATV’s Heavy-Duty Spare Tire Carrier on this Honda Pioneer 1000.
