So I just picked up a 1996 Sportsman 500 4x4, it has just over 2500 miles on it but it looks hardly used. Was mainly used for hunting by the previous owner. Has a polaris winch on it but it is not hooked up, that will be my job. (hopefully it's not too difficult.)

Thanks all, I am thinking of taking it to a polaris place and have them check it over and do the scheduled maintenance on it (50 hours). They said it would cost $300.00 not sure if that's high or not.

Also anyone have any instructions on how to hookup the winch? The previous owner removed it since he thought he was going to put it on his new machine but i guess his new one came with one, all the wire are there just in a cardboard box.
