Just bought an 08 700xx

So i just bought a 2008 700xx with under 20 hours on it for 3800. it is completely bone stock and was wondering what upgrades i should get for it, because i have been driving it alot around my yard and noticed the turning radius is horrible. will the 11"16 sway bar help make the turning any better? what other upgrades should i get? ( not for making it faster)
thanks, chris

If you do any climbing or tight technical trails, you would like the 13 tooth front spocket as well as the sway bar and arms. And its inder $20.00 and ez install. I love my rear sway bar from http://www.l8tonracing.com/
Also a uni air filter like $25 or so, let the beast breath!

Good luck installing those Pro Armor pegs. Mine were a complete pain in the ass. One side installed ok, the other was a horrible fit. But I did get them on, and I've heard here from others that they had no issues. But I got mine early in the process, so maybe the fitment is better.
