Question winch wiring question

Soon to be in the market for a winch. Probably going with a KFI or Superwinch. My question is will both of these hook up to the pre wired winch hook ups that are already on the ATV?

We reciently had a post with a KFI winch and with minor adjustment it will wire into the factory wiring. I believe the same can be said for the Superwinch.

Good luck,

The factory pre wired cables will work for all winches. Polaris gives you the 6 gauge positive and negative wires that connect to the contactor, and an orange with white stripe wire for handle bar switch. The rest is up to you.
