    Thinking about yanking mine this weekend.
    What can I lose? Dead weight.

    Probably make the front end less choppy in the stutter stuff I would imagine.
    I not road racing with this thing.

    I have the updated sway bar on mine. I have about 300 miles on it in the dunes since then, and it is much better. I do not have any of the clunking I had before. It was replaced under warranty. I think you can buy them for under $40 though if you are out of warranty.

    It handles like crap if you remove it. If you run hard you want it on there.

    Thanks you everybody. I like to haul ass on the dunes and in central Oregon on the dirt roads so I will try to get the dealership to replace it under warranty.

    I took mine out as soon as I got my machine home. We don't run fast. The extra articulation is nice in the trails, rocks, ruts & mud.

    I ran for 8 years without either front or rear one on my Rzr S. (I did have progressive springs- that was a must)
    Took me a few minutes to get used to it...then I loved it. Smooth over the chop and stutter whoops.
    Wife even commented how smooth it was...the wife that knows pretty much ZERO about suspension.

    I ride mostly dezert- lots of rocks, washboard, stutters, whoops- only dune a couple times a year. I am going to take mine and see how it does.
    I will post up.

    If I could I would move to southern Utah I love rock crawling but there just isn’t much of it to be had around here and if that was the case I would not have a swaybar. We had planned to go to Saint George hurricane area this winter but our plans went South and we stayed Home.

    The only difference I noticed was more front articulation, especially nice when climbing rocky hills or when one side drops off in a rut. Haven't noticed any difference in handling flat-out trail runs but we don't have wide open desert roads here either.. But having said that, i wouldn't hesitate to run mine out there like it sits now. With the suspension as soft as it is on these things it's hard to notice and really doesn't feel unstable at all, as some would like you to believe.

    I find it interesting that the new Honda Talon doesn’t even come with the front sway bar. All of the magazine writers said that they ride amazingly flat and stable.

    You could also set up the front dual rates to hit the big spring quicker under dive.
    I had my old Rzr S set up so it would dive to a certain point and then just stop. You had to get used to it but I really liked it.

    I do 2 foot a lot so just have the throttle ready to lift out of the turn.
    Really helps plant the turn IMO. Weight transfer.
