Just wanted to see if there was any interest on this... It's a rear sway bar (the first one ever made for the XX by DB). All hardware included, and ready to bolt on... open to offers...

are you selling because you dont like the performance of it? if you are like me and wanted something stiffer than what durablue had in mind I made some real improvements to the location and setup of mine with some simple changes

I had some real issues(2 trips to er 1 with 7 broken ribs) with getting used to the irs. so i made it almost as stiff as a straight axle bike and now I love it at full acceleration out of a turn it will still pick up one tire without the other

moved mounting location to center of a-arm and cut first 3 adjusting holes off of the fore link leaves 2 adjusting holes left. stiff and stiffer was able to reuse their mounting brackets by cutting a little off and re-drilling them. did have to cut a tab off of the a-arm mounting bracket

no I dont have any, I will take a couple and add them within the next couple of days.. it looks real good and doesnt stick out behind the frame like durablue intended so therefore more protected also I have lowered my XX so original mounting was hitting exhaust

durablue alterations

hopefully ive got the pics figured out.. you'll notice I mounted tofront of rear a-arm mount so it is inside of a-arm.. which is why I had to cut forelinks to keep them from hitting.. I might call durablue and have them send me another set so I can retain full adjustability

not because of the sway bar.. I lowered the bike 3" with a weaker set of springs to get a better center of gravity. lowering also makes it wider with this set of tires and wheels it is 51.5 " at the rear. and gives it a much smoother ride

What springs did you use to lower it? Did you only do the springs to get it that low or did you do something else?

LTZ400 front springs on both ends and then that is a set of 20" tires.. the front are 21" razors the rear shocks arent quite stiff enough now tho gonna put a heavier oil in the shocks to tighten the compression a little.. still have the same amount of travel this way just start at a different spot in the travel.. I still have a lot more ground clearance than a straight axle bike so I never touch where everyone else is dragging

with this setup it handles better than any staight axle bike I have ever been on and it still has enough flex to keep both rear tires planted coming out of a turn so you can accelerate out of the turn harder and earlier
