    Need help from owners with winch and Honda stock bumper 2 questions

    Question for owners with the stock Honda front bumper and winch with the Honda or KFI winch mount.
    1. How hard is it to reach the free spool knob on the end of the winch to place in or out of gear?
    2. Can you see drum good enough to see how the rope is winding on the drum when winching?

    Please be serious, I am very interested in your answers as on my old Big Red it was very hard to reach around and behind bumper to turn knob and see the rope. Thank You

    i'll know in 15 day. i already purchased the KFI mount just waiting to go pick up the bike. from the looks of the pics the dealer sent me, reaching the freespool is going to be tough. but there appears to be just a plastic valence around that area that a large 4-5" holesaw should fix that access problem. Though that idea makes me cringe.... i also know they make plastic snap in hole seals. possibly that might make cutting a hole in your brand new machine a little less painful.

    I also noticed that with the KFI mount
    . I Looked at the Honda mount and it looks like it has a big hole I am guessing for access to the knob. Thanks for the reply
