ACE Headlight Maintenance

Headlight and taillight lenses become dirty during normal operation of your Polaris ACE. Clean all lights frequently to ensure a clear field of vision as well as visibility to other vehicles.

Headlight Beam Adjustment

ACE headlight diagram

1. Place the vehicle on a level surface with the headlight approximately 25 feet (7.6 m) from a wall. Place the transmission in PARK.

2. Measure the distance from the floor to the center of the headlight and make a mark on the wall at the same height.

3. Apply the brakes. Turn the ignition switch to the LIGHTS ON position.

4. Observe the headlight aim. The most intense part of the headlight beam should be aimed 8 inches (20 cm) below the mark placed on the wall in the second step. Include the weight of a rider on the seat while performing this step.

5. If adjustment is necessary, turn the headlight adjustment screw (1) to adjust the beam.

6. Repeat the Steps 4 and 5 until the beam is properly adjusted.
