Winch Mounts

“Your winch-mounting options for your UTV are far less limited than you may think, thanks to our huge selection of Can-Am Defender winch mounts, plates, and brackets from KFI, Kolpin, EMP, and other UTV industry leaders. If you need a bumper anyway, you could get an unbeatable 2-for-1 deal and find a winch-compatible bumper that will allow you to just slip that winch right in without worrying about awkward fitment or compromised power. Or, if you’re not running a bumper at the moment, we’ve got about every style of bracket you could ever need to hook your winch up to the vehicle’s frame. In the case of the bumper, by the way, you don’t have to worry about damage, thanks to extra support bars and gussets designed to absorb the pulling forces created when winching. Whichever direction you decide to go, all we care about is safety and efficiency, so we’ve populated this Can-Am Defender winch mount selection with products that hold like heck and get the job done. If you need a Can-Am Defender winch mount that will allow for recovery from deep mud, we have a number of options that can be mounted higher on your UTV. Alternatively, if you’re looking to hoist game into your bed, we have mounts that fit near the rear rack of your frame for an efficient pulling angle that doesn’t overtax the winch, mount, or your frame. Whatever your purpose is, just let us know and we’ll provide a tailor-made Can-Am Defender winch mounting solution to get the job done again and again. “

And what about small parts, should you bring some of those along as well? Short answer, yes. A belt is good to have on the machine at all times, and having an axle in the bike or at the very least the truck is also good. It’s hard to know exactly where to draw the line with what to bring, but you definitely need to have room for a cooler full of beverages no matter what. And don’t forget to bring a clutch tool for changing the belt, electrical tape, crescent wrenches, and hose clamps.

Regarding at-home Can-am Defender tools, a grease gun is a must for greasing up wheel bearings. If you’re doing any work on the clutch, be it either the primary or secondary, you’re going to need a special CVT clutch tool if you want to do it right. This tool loosens the belt up by spreading the secondary sheaves, making it so that when you put it all back together, you can do so much easier and, more importantly, correctly. Your Can-Am Defender clutch isn’t something you want to cut corners on, especially since it is your main source to make a machine move. Of course there are ways around using specialized UTV tools, but for what they cost we would without a doubt just recommend buying the right tools to get the job done right the first time.
