Hey folks,

This might be an honest issue of oversight but just in case...I ordered a 2021 Northstar which I picked up today and it was supposed to ship with the FACTORY installed winch...arrived with winch installed but missing the wireless remote (signal receiver not installed either). On the Polaris website it lists as stock on vehicle with both dash switch and wireless remote. Dealer said they may have discontinued for 2021 but at these prices my opinion it should be included. Dealer ordered it in and was checking with polaris...but just as a caution for those making the purchase....check for it.

Cheers,
J

Mine came with just the wireless remote. I asked the dealer if I could add a dash switch, they said I couldn't, but I did with an after market. it turns out that the factory wiring has provisions for it (plug and play), I just cut the plug off and spliced in the after market.
The wireless should be easier to install since you wouldn't have to mount a switch, probably in the 1/2 hour range.

So strange...mine came from FACTORY with the dash switch mounted by the light switch....at least the dealer is taking care of it.

Assuming you checked under the hood? That's where my remote and receiver were even though I didn't order it that way and the dealer had no idea it was there. 2020 NS Premium. Maybe I got lucking getting the remote sounds the switch was also on the dash

Sure did...I even showed them the mounting location under the hood. Just super odd I guess but at least they're making it right.

Just curious where you see that it shows that it comes with the "Wireless" remote for the winch. I have had one on order for quite some time, and mine hasn't arrived yet. I did feel like I read that somewhere, and now can't seem to find it. My dad just got his from the dealer last week, and his came the same way, with the winch, but not the remote. I told him that I thought it was supposed to come with the wireless remote, and he said the dealer didn't think so. That's when I looked again, and now I can't find where I read that. Maybe they removed that listing...? I do appreciate anything you can show me, because I think mine is supposed to be showing up in about a week.

Thanks!

My understand (haven't verified) that the North Star Ultimate winch has the remote. My 2020 NS Premium had the 4500# winch and a dash switch In/out for the winch needed to the headlight switch.

However, my unit had the remote and receiver under the hood which the dealer said was not supposed to be there, so I just got lucky.

You can buy they remote and receiver separate and follow YouTube videos for self install

Hey, the above is the Canada site but I'd bet if you swap out the ca above and put in us it will take you to the same spot....youll see the winch listed as stock on vehicle ...open it up and in the specs you'll see the wireless remote is included...also at the top is the search for bike specific accessories. I sent this to the dealer and they are making it right....good luck but it's pretty black and white if you ask me

I just got a 21 Northstar Ultimate and mine doesn’t have a wireless remote, either. I think I saw on another forum that they were having so many issues with the remote that they don’t include it any more.

I think I’m going to try to figure out a longer, hard wired version... it’s in my “to-do” list.

I get my 2021 Northstar which I picked up last week, my missing wireless control too. Call the dealer and he is checking with Polaris if they coming with a remote controller.

I watched videos on the 21’s and it says that it doesn’t ship with remote anymore. Probably got tired af replacing lost or dead batteries. The way I look at it, it means if I need the winch I get to stay in the seat and operate it! I really like my new northstar crew trail boss.
