Viper Midnight 4500

I ordered this for my 2021 Honda Pioneer 700-2 Deluxe. Deliver was quick and everything was in the kit despite all of the hardware being out of the bag and rolling around in the box. The winch did not have the brand sticker on it which I don't care about, it was just strange. The fit and finish of all the parts is top notch with the exception of the hook. The gate on the hook is very stiff because it is slightly bent but I will be replacing the hook with a shackle mount anyways.

The installation of the winch itself was fairly easy. The mount fit was very tight but that is a good thing. The instruction for the winch and mount were pretty good even though that part is pretty easy to figure out without instructions. The color coded cables had to be switched as mentioned in the instructions.

The instructions for the relay were not as clear. I had to go online to find a picture of the wireless unit wiring which after it was wired up was easy to understand but without good instructions it was not clear.

I already had a dash mounted rocker switch for the winch control so I just cut off the handle bar mounted switch and ran those wires to my switch.

All I have done so far is let the rope out and then used the winch to pull the Pioneer up my drive to my truck to get the rope wound tight. I worked great. I bought the winch to help move downed trees and to use with a snow plow which I have not purchased yet. It looks great on the SxS as it is almost invisible.

I am very satisfied with the purchase experience from The Honda SXS Club store and highly recommend them.
