Hello all.
I see quite a few threads for builds so I will try to only cover stuff unique to mine. I am OCD when it comes to wiring :Eyecrazy: and tend to do more than necessary.

19Wherry did a great thread on his: https://www.wolverineforums.com/forum/194-yamaha-wolverine-x2-x4-builds/26802-2019-x2-build.html with the OEM instruction sheets too.

I have added the front and rear a-arm guards, rock sliders, rear brush guard, and storage box. I borrowed my SSL speaker tube from my Kodiak until I can get a permanent solution going.

I installed the SuperATV 5k Black-Ops winch and mount 2 weeks ago. Mounted the contactor under the hood and replaced the helmet/seat-belt switch with a momentary rocker from CH4x4 (very little modification and out of the way). Remote control is wireless and mounted controller behind the firewall. On the contactor I cut half of one bolt hole off (circled yellow in pictures) and did not use. Second one drilled one new hole in plastic. Third hole was already there for the positive cable clip. Forth was already there...drain hole I think? Still leaves room for the 2 optional relays too.

I bought rocker switch connectors and terminals for a more plug and play option.

I bought terminals and boots from cycleterminal.com to tie into the the factory accessory plugs behind the firewall.

Installed the RAM mount for my cell phone to the grab bar like they do for that GPS system. Lost my cell once on the Kodiak, never again haha

I have been using the hell out of this receiver from Curt on the farm - 2 inch ball, hook clevis, and yard trailer

I bought cheap-o led work lights from amazon and mounted to the back bars.

And finally working on a relay box solution for multiple light accessories. Bought a relay pack, this box with fuses, figuring out the rest still... updates to follow.

Thanks. I do a lot of night riding (normally as the point man)- will be mounting a front led bar like yours, angled front pillar lights, rock lights, and the rear pillar lights. With each coming with its own fuse and relay, I had to do something and came across the box on Amazon. Plan is to mount it to the firewall over the battery for short battery cables and easy pass thru of wires.

The box was $10 from Mictuning - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B075M4PRG2/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
The relays with wires was $12 - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B017VDI0GY/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I am getting the pictures together for a complete write up on the Relay box setup

Nice machine. I'm looking into the same winch as well. Any pros and cons you've come across yet? Love the cheap net.
Nice work on all the electrical stuff, I've never had the patience to make it so neat.

Thank you
No real Pros and Cons when it comes to operation, haven't had to put it through the ringer yet haha. Not much help I know. I used it once as a test... intentionally bottomed out in sand with a tree nearby and it pulled easily in neutral. The wireless controller was a welcomed upgrade from the old cord. The finish is similar to role cage. The hook was gold color so I painted until I pick up a winch shackle.

Yeah, I've learned to accept my neatness and do it organized the first time... or It'll bug me until I fix it :Eyecrazy: :lmao:
