    Hi All,
    I just purchased a 900sp. I haven't even taken delivery yet as I am a paraplegic and have Sure Grip hand controls on order. I currently own Yamaha YZF250, Yamaha TTR-230, Kawasaki 750 Brute Force, Suzuki 500 Vinson, and Honda 250. I've been in a wheelchair for three years so the bikes are on there way out for obvious reasons. I've made do with the regular ATV's but the ACE will be a big improvement. I've already ordered a DragonFire 4pt Harness and some grab handles so the upgrades begin. More to follow and hope to share ideas with each other. A big thanks to the admins for there "disability" thread! Thanks.

    Hello, I joined this forum in 2014 when the Ace first came out. Now as I have read recently on this forum I own the machine Polaris should have built from the start.
    I'm so excited I sold my 2014 RS Spyder SE-5 as soon as I heard about the new 900xc. I will be picking up my new 900xc 4/27/17
    Bought a show demo model sight unseen with no miles. I only have to drive a 100 miles to pick it up.
    Probably has had 1000's of kids climbing in it. Could not pass it up at the discount. Ordered bumpers, mirrors, roof and parts to build my own hand controls.
    See my other threads for details. Will start a build thread in the accessibility section for the hand control build and install. I got the idea from a youtube video I found.
    These hand controls are all above the bottom of the steering wheel and won't interfere with entry or tilt. Looks like a genius design I can copy and share.

    Hope I pushed the right button here. Anyway, Hi, my name is Al, and I'm new here. I'm retired, moved out of the city to the boonies, and there is room here for snowmobiles and ATVs. I have a Jeep YJ with a V8 swap that is currently not running, gotta work on that. But I have been intrigued with the idea of the Ace, as a sit-in rather than sit-on ATV, so I bought a 2015 570 from Craigslist. Only 600 miles on it, so still in good shape. Some maintenance has been let go, so I'm catching up on that. And adding stuff like a winch, mirror, and who knows what to come. Doors, maybe.

    Does anybody know if doors with lowers will reduce the amount of heat coming in the cab area, or make it worse? Even in the frozen North, it's hot in the summer, and all that heat off the radiator is not that much fun.

    My former life as a quality control technician, and my last job at a parachute shop, led me to an interest in sewing. I specialize in heavy duty, outdoor and tactical type sewing. Looking forward to making a roof for the Ace.

    I've also been a motorcycle rider. Ducati 125, Suzuki 250 Scrambler, Ducati 250 scrambler, Honda XL500, Honda CB750, probably something I forgot. Rode all of them on and off road. Love to go off road with vehicles.

    I have lower door inserts,... and holy moly it can get hot inside that cab!
    I've got 3 ideas to lower the heat during the summer months.
    1. Remove my lower door inserts
    2. Remove the front windshield to get some air flow
    3. Cut out a rubber gasket and fit it over the steering column,... therefore blocking the hole where the hot air rushes in.
