I got my Talon 3500 lb. winch mounted Saturday. It took about 3 hours because the direction that came with the ATV (specific) mount did not say anything about having to mount the winch upside down. Once I figuered that out the rest was easy. I put the solenoid in the space under the seat, thumb control next to the light switch on the handel bar. The only down side to the set up is that the winch can be operated without the ignition switch on. I would have prefered to have it wired to the switch that way I could have use the cable as a locking device. Ohh well. It being a new winch and cable I all so ordered a tree savor strap off of Ebay to go along with it.
