I have just decided on going with the Ace over a Rzr. My main reasoning is because I would be about to make a good down payment and pay off my loan quickly. In doing this, I can go on buy a Sportsman 570 like I also want. I finally have a dealership near me in North Alabama I can go check them out in person. I'm already thinking of putting new A Arms or something on the machine to give it a wider stance. My main focus is stability, so do you guys think that is a good first purchase? Or do you think I should be able get away with the stock stability for a little while so I can buy other accessories? Thanks this site has been terrific so far!

Ok I will see how I like the stock ride first. It will probably be beneficial to wait and see what aftermarket products they come out with as far as suspension. I've always thought highly of the Fox shocks on RZRs.

Go ride that sucker and let us know your thoughts. I think you will be surprised how stable it is out of the box.

We got about 6+ inches last night where I live in BAMA. Hope to make it to the dealership after lunch time. I will probably be sold the minute I sit in one.

Don't widen it then you won't be legal on FS trails…this ACE has no body roll…very stable..put you money on some accessories.. or wider tires…

I didn't think about the legal aspect. I definately want to keep it legal as possible! Haha if I'm not mistaken it comes with 25 inch tires on 12 inch wheels correct? Could I run 26 inch tires with 12 inch wheels with no problems? I know that question is probably going to be discussed in a different section but it was just fresh on my mind.

In case you're not aware....taller tires rob power. They increase the radius which acts like a longer lever,,,, like going from a 8 in long wrench to a 10 in long wrench. On machines with power to spare, small radius changes may not matter. On the Ace it may. Taller tires are also heavier which also consumes power. You may already know all this just thought i'ld throw it out there fyi. If you need to change tires, which you may not, try to stay lite and same size IF conserving power is an issue.

Fly is so right! Taller tires rob your HP…get ride of the oem Ace wheels and go with aluminum wheels…My Ace runs with top and full windshield bumpers etc…52mph..that is all she will do…

I knew the taller tire would play a factor, but not that much of one. I will be using the ones that come on the machine, just mainly thinking about later on down the road.

Now i got to road test it. very impessive. Low range is geared very low. which is a great thing.they also had 26" knarly tires on it with purty aluminum wheels. with 10lbs of air. so ride wasnt especially great. but i attribute that 2 air pressure and tire selection. The engine is very stout and will pull 25mph effortless in low range. High range while it pulled very good, i feel as it could use a little more hp to get there quicker. but still i pulled a 50 mph on it. impressive for 325 cc. It has to be the most quite engine and engine runs smooth as silk. Steering is great. i dont feel it needs EPS.Just took one pic. But it was decked to the hilt. and was not going to budge off of the above price sheet. so i shall continue to shop. But overall rating for the ace is very high.

Wow full pop on it plus BS $200 setup fee? Is this one of those dealers with the 2 million dollar showroom complete with marble floors, turntable displays, 20 LED displays etc? Its their right to charge what they want, but yeah, I'd keep shopping. Im patient and waiting until at least July/August after the newest models are announced.

I'm so jealous. I don't think the nearest dealer to us has one yet. I want to see one in person so bad.
LOL, My closest dealer(HK in Hooksett NH) does have at least one sitting in the showroom. A friend of mine posted a couple pics of her husband sitting in it on her FB page a week ago. Its only 20 minutes away and I have held off the urge to go look for myself...so far ;)
