Pull off the cover that sits below the headlight pod on the column and you will find an orange wire with a white stripe on it, you will probably see two of them. Polaris leaves these wires hanging out of the wiring harness for aftermarket accessories( winches, lighting, etc.). Just have to hook into one of the orange and white stripe wires.

Hey David spend $20 on a cheap mutimeter for christ sakes, you spent a whole lot more on the winch plus a ton more on the bike itself geez and it.s not like u won't need it in the future

along with a digital multimeter, one of these are nice to have. just hook up the lead to ground and you can test to see if you have 12volts, helpfull when looking for a switched circuit or if a fuse is good or bad.
