Ever wonder why a winch goes bad when not in use?

Tip 35. Use your winch! Even a water resistant winch that is on a bike but goes unused will collect moisture in the electric motor which will cause corrosion that will eventually cause the winch to fail. A simple way to remedy this is by putting the winch gearbox in the free spool position and then running the winch till the electric motor feels warm to the touch, the operation of the winch will help clean up any corrosion that has started to form and the heat will dry out the moisture increasing the life of the winch! The best time to do this is after clean up. Tip supplied by KFI Products!
