I have an 04' sportsman 700 twin. I just bought a badlands 3000lb winch and I'm confused on how to mount it. I want to mount it between the headlights in the "winch pocket". Where I'm stumped at is how to get the supplied mounting plate in. Do I need to remove the whole front plastic etc? Any help would be greatly appreciated

You need to order a model specific mount for your atv. The plate that comes with the winch is not going to help you at all. Kfi seems to have the best mounts at the best prices.

I have the same winch on my 700. I welded the supplied winch plate to a piece of 1.5" stainless steel thick wall square tubing and drilled holes, 1 in each end of the tubing. Using 3/8 stainless bolts, it mounted to the frame with no problem. Pulled myself out of the mud many times and still holding strong.
