Are you tired of your friends having to pull you out whenever you get stuck? Well SuperATV’s got the fix with our Black Ops Series winches, and today we’re going to show you how to get one installed on this Honda Pioneer 1000.
So let’s get to it.
[00:17] First, remove the hood from the machine. Just grab the tabs, twist, remove the hood and set it aside. If you have a factory front bumper, you’ll need to remove it as well. Remove this allen headed screw, the bolt that goes through here, and two bolts back here. Then remove the same hardware on the other side. Then remove your bumper and set it aside.
Now remove the four 10 mm bolts securing the door to the machine. Then remove the door. Now remove all the pushpins securing the fender to the machine and remove the fender.
Next remove the two upper and two lower bolts that secure the differential to the frame. Then grab this bracket and install it to the frame of the machine using the M10 x 1.25 bolts provided in the kit. Make sure it lays like this with the the slotted holes facing down. Leave them loose enough to make adjustments.
Now take the winch mount place and orient it so the curved portion is facing up and slide it in. Now we know where our plate is gonna lay and we can fully tighten it. Slide the mounting plate back into place like it was and use the M10 hardware with nylock nuts to start it by hand.
Next take the last two M10 x 1.25 bolts and thread them into the frame right here by hand. Finally, go through and fully tighten the hardware.
[05:04] The next step is to install the winch to the mount. Grab the winch out of the winch kit along with these bolts. Go ahead an put the flat washer and the lock washer on each bolt. Line the winch up with the holes on the mounting plate and get your bolts started. Once they’re all started, you can fully tighten them.
Next grab the solenoid. You can put this anywhere you like, but we like to mount it right here for ease of access. Line it up where you want it then drill a hole through the plastic. Put a screw through the first hole, and then drill the second hole. Now get the two small washers and nuts to tighten down your solenoid.
[08:04] Now feed your wires one at a time down through this hole here. We just need to feed enough to get it to reach the winch. Route them over this hose and over this frame rail so they can reach the winch. Loosely attach them to the terminals on the winch.
For the slack, you can either cut down the wires or feed them down towards the bottom of the machine and coil them up with some zip ties. Just make sure the coils are somewhere safe. After you’ve dealt with the slack, you can make your connection.
Take the yellow wire and attach it to the yellow stud. Take the blue wire and attach it to the blue stud. Don’t fully tighten them yet. The next step will be to get our all-time power source and the all-time ground.
[11:44] Grab the black and red wires so you can attach them to the battery. The side closest to the driver’s side is the negative/ground. Route your black wire back through here behind the battery and all the way up. Attach your connection to the bottom of the terminal. Then connect the other end to the black stud on the solenoid.
If you mounted your solenoid in the same place as us, I highly recommend cutting your hot and ground wires down rather than coiling them up with zip ties.
The hot wire can go directly to terminal. We’ll plan our route and cut off our excess, then remove the ground wire so we can get our heat shrink fittings on. Now it’s time to make the connections using the same routes we used before. make sure you put and insulator on the end of the hot wire that’s going to the solenoid. Tighten your solenoid hardware carefully. Take your time and make sure you don’t ground anything out.
[16:20] We’re going to install one of our SuperATV rocker switches. It comes ready to go and it’ll plug right into the wire coming off the solenoid. The Honda Pioneer isn’t equipped with any dash mounted rock switch holes, so we measured 35 mm up and 21 mm across. We decided to put it right here.
Now cut a out the slot in the dash. I like to use a lighter to heat up my blade to make it easier to cut through the plastic. Now just clean up the edges a little bit. Now feed your rocker switch wire through and fit your switch into the slot.
The next step is to route this wire to the solenoid. Feed it behind the bracket for the power steering. There’s an opening there and you can feed the wire all the way through there. Make the connection, routing it down through here, then pull some of the excess wire back.
[19:07] Now we need to attach the red wire to a keyed on power source which can be difficult on a Pioneer. We’ve tapped into the wire on the backside of the 12-volt outlet that comes on the dash and we’ve tapped into the hot wire. That wire’s white. So we took our red wire and connected it to the white wire.
For this one we, added some extra wire to the keyed on wire, then before we made the connection we pulled the excess back to see how much extra we have. Before we make the connection we’ll coil up the excess and secure it with a zip tie. Then we’ll make the connection.
Now go to the winch, take the wires off the terminals, and install the insulators. Then fully tighten them on the winch.
[23:48] Now grab the factory bumper and use the allen headed hardware, lock washer, flat washer, and nut to install the fairlead. To reinstall the bumper, first make sure you slide your winch rope through the fairlead and slide your bumper back into the channel. Then reinstall all the hardware.
Next, install the stop block using the allen headed screw and the nylock nuts. The open end faces away from the machine and the flat end faces toward the machine. Now attach the clevis hook onto the rope, and finally, attach the pull strap to the clevis hook.
Now we’ll test everything out. Turn the key on. The rocker switch should illuminate and the “in” and “out” buttons should both work. To use the remote, first remove the three screws and pull the tab out from the battery. Then press down and hold both of the buttons until you see a red indication light. And now both buttons should work.
And there you have it. That’s how super easy it is to install SuperATV’s winch and winch mount on this Honda Pioneer 1000. For more information on the winch or winch mount, or any of SuperATV’s great products, feel free to give us a call at 855-743-3427 or check us out online at SuperATV.com.
