I saw that in a video for the newer regular sportsman, I don't see that for the high lifter which has the old body. Are you sure this applies to a highlifter? Maybe I just need to look harder, but the plastics seem to be much tougher to remove on this one for a good peekIn front below the handlebars there are keyed on power accessory wires. They're orange and/or orange with a white tracer.
I'll have to take a deeper look, in the video it looked like the plastics in front of the steering column came off, on mine the snorkels are there so you can't really look in there very well.To my knowledge that's how all the newer machines are set-up.
