What does the l8ton 11/16 sway bar do?

I see a lot of people have it on their xx and I was just wondering what difference it makes over the stock one. Does it make drifting and doing donuts easier?

It makes hell of a difference.. the 9/16 or 11/16...
When turning left the quad will roll to tthe right and try to lift the lh wheel..
the sway bar stops the roll so both front wheels stay planted..
It also stops/massively reduces the understeer when cornering..
Well worth the upgrade.. i dont think anyone has not been happy with the results..
If you read the l8ton web site it will explain the differences between the two available/.

Everything that rappey said, best upgrade I've done for the 700xx along with the Sparks pipe and ehs controller. Best not to over think it and just get one if you have the money for it. And yes it will make drifting and donuts 1000 times easier. It was the first upgrade I did to my xx and I love it. Just beware, once you start upgrading her it will be very hard to stop lol

It basically stiffens the rear end and does away with the IRS (somewhat), makes it handle like a sra(most 450's). It stops the front wheel lifting and makes the inside rear lift instead. IMO.

I have a 11/16" swaybar and hoping to buy a 9/16" one soon. The crazy thing about racing a 700xx is you can dial you're tyres in with how much grip you want by changing swaybars and shock settings. IMO.

Do you lose the great ride of the irs that way?

Id say that the 11/16 is a median between irs and sra. It will still be a bit smoother than a sra but a sra quad will still handle a little bit better.

Like I've said before 99% of the people love the sway bar...I've rode with King quads & Renegades through rutted out, off camber trails. And my quad was the only one that kept all 4 tires on the ground.
