    Headlights and Lightbar for 900XC

    Hi,

    Couple of questions around getting more light out in front of me...

    1) Have any of you converted your halogen headlights to LED? Did you just replace the bulb or can you suggest a full on headlight unit replacement? I wonder if the headlights in the ACE 900XC are the same as another Polaris model, perhaps a RZR?

    2) Lightbars, what did you go with and what mount did you use and would recommend?

    Thanks!

    They're the same as a Sportsman 850-1000, no LEDs there either.

    Professor Fate,

    I actually did both. I originally converted my ACE 900XC large plastic lights to LED lightbulbs and they were okay, but in the long run I added some microtuning LED lights that were MUCH brighter. I also mounted a LED lightbar (single row LED aftermarket bought off amazon for $52) of under the roll cage (aftermarket cage) to give me another 8200 lumens of light to go with the 5400 lumens I got with the microtuning lights.

    Hope that helps,

    mkvien, thanks... that's what I needed to know. I figured Polaris would not make a unique one for the ACE 900XC. Now just to look and see what's available. if I find something I will post my finding.

    V22Driver, wow what an awesome machine! Very functional yet tasteful upgrades. On the lightbar from Amazon, could you give me more details or a link? And how did you mount it? Are the headlight LED's from Microtuning mounted to a sheet of PCV? They look sharp.

    Prof,

    Thanks, I have done a lot of mods to get my ACE up to speed to compete. It has been stressful at times, but fun when you look back. Got me to the championship this year, so I must have done something right.

    I mounted the microtuning LED lights on a flat piece of 3/16" UHMW plastic that I had left over from the doors. Unfortunately, the right light broke the mount during the V2R in August and I have to come up with a new mount, but they worked and I was mistaken on the lumens. They are 3600lm (I think that is for both together) so I have over 11000lm with the light bar. They came out nice, but I am not sure I like the setback hole, but I didn't have a lot of time to come up with a mount. I will probably change those in the future. Here is the link to these lights: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I also mounted a piece of clear plastic over the front of them to prevent any rocks (I get roosted by the m/c classes regularly) from cracking the glass.

    The LED light bar is mounted with 2 of these 1.75" mounts from GS Power (their service/support is outstanding): https://www.amazon.com/GS-Power-Brac...K0RXAF5KVVHWFW I will take a picture of the mount and post it.

    Here is the link to the actual lightbar: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1 It is a 25" lightbar and it made it through 530 miles of the V2R race (not that I have needed it) and still turns on. I only used it to get to the start line in the morning and didn't need it since I finished the race before it got dark.

    Hope all the links worked, but if they didn't, let me know and I will see what I can do.

    Sporty,

    Do you mind if I ask you a question about how you mounted your light bar? Is it on mounted on the top of the storage lid or in front? I like this location but I'm planning on getting some Rotopax tanks and I'd like to have both. Do you have any up close pictures?

    Hi Airew, I have the dual Rotopax mounts and got a 10" lightbar for Christmas. Have yet to mount it but I am planning to use the bumper mount locations (see white arrows). Looks like that will work but it's got to get above freezing before I try installing it!

    I like those headlights. How involved is the wiring to install those? I basically know nothing about wiring.
