Hello, I live in central Ok. My wife and two teenage sons race Honda atvs. Do to health issues from serving in Iraq I can only ride about 15 or 20 minutes before pain in my chest stops me. Been saving for a power steering atv to try to ride with them again. Was set to buy new grizzly 550 eps when I saw review of ACE on internet. took it for test ride, was really comfortable for me ( 6'2" about 285lbs.) Waffled back and forth for awhile, finally bought ACE and brought it home today(2/25/14). Have only ridden for a short while, but feel really positive about my choice. Can't wait to get out and enjoy the trails again with family. Hope to share some and learn a lot on this forum. Fun to be in on the ground floor of something I think will be big! thanks guys and keep the rubber side down.

Does yours have EPS?
The Polaris site says "N/A" in the EPS category, but I noticed that the instrument cluster seems to have a warning light for EPS.
I assume that's in there as an option for when they add EPS later.

I'm interested in getting EPS for mine when I can.

No mine does not have the eps. The steering seems light and I am hoping the steering wheel will give less feed back than handlebars. Bought mine for 7599.00 out the door and got dealer to kick in 15% off future add ons plus free installation. Thought if power steering comes out in next year or so I will probably buy. For now will try to get more ride time and see if I will really need.

One of the best things I did to my RZR was add EPS and replace the 13" steering wheel with an 11" one.
The smaller wheel made it easier to turn sharp without doing the hand-over-hand thing as much.
The EPS made it much easier to turn the wheel, even one handed, even with the reduced diameter steering wheel.
Whether it's fairly light now or not, I'm definitely in line for an EPS unit.

Congrats and welcome aboard from Austin! Let us know how the well it does for you on longer rides after you get some more time behind the wheel.

Congrats on the purchase! Sounds like the ACE is going to fit you perfectly and get you back out there on the trails all day :)
