Default koplin switchback plow kit

Hello everybody,i have a 2014 Polaris ace 325 and I bought a koplin switchback plow kit with universal mount.part number 17-0000.For the life of me I cant figure out how to add the mount underneath.Ive taken off the skidplate and measured the set back but on the right side theres cooling pipes and maybe the bodytub interfering .How do I attach the mount underneath with the supplied u bolts?

I haven't heard of anyone putting a plow on an Ace so it would be interesting to find out if anyone has done it before. You may be boldly going where no man has gone before.

Ive seen several on youtube.Koplin claims it fits .What I did find today after looking at parts diagrams of the ace was theres a bolt and clip that hold the cooling pipes in tight against the frame.Im 95 percent sure that's my issue .If that doesn't help I will be off to my local Polaris dealer tomorrow to ask there and will be calling koplin again! Koplin never said it would fit easily

That's good, but it's too bad it didn't have the pics when you bought it.

Plow system works great.Even though I have a fairly small driveway due to severe back issues it was killing me to do my driveway .This will sure help on that front.Most likely wont be using this weekend as -30 to -40 weather is predicted.

Wow. It never gets that cold here. The coldest temp in the 10-day forecast is on Sunday, -11 degrees C for a high and -18 C for a low at night. That's 12 degrees F and -1 F for me. Coincidentally, -40 is the same in Celsius and Fahrenheit. And the only time I ever felt -40 it was the wind chill while I was riding a snowmobile in the U.P. Maybe you'll get lucky and it will be too cold to snow.

P.S. I have frost on my truck but there's no snow to be seen, and that's okay with me. My bad back and shoulders makes it nearly impossible to shovel more than a few minutes each day without an incredible amount of pain.

Pain is the reason I bought toys to handle the snow. A small blower to do sidewalks and small jobs, a big snowblower for drifts and heavy snow removal. The plow on the SzS for large area snow removal. My drive is 300 ft by 2 cars wide, so way to much to shovel...and it is gravel!

Holy crap, that's cold. I've never even felt windchill that cold, let alone the actual temperature, and I hope I never do.
