Good luck with that and let us know how it goes. I've been looking into front mounts for a scooter, also, and haven't come to any conclusions.
I went round and round with a front receiver mount on my old 1996 Dodge Ram, for a winch carrier, and ground clearance was a huge problem. I eventually sent the mount back and got a warn winch mount that did not use a receiver type connection but rather used the traditional mount to each of the frame rails.
I would think that excessive play, vertically and side to side, would be a source of considerable frustration with one of these setups.
