I only have the 11/16's imo I'd get this one. Just cause for the same price it will give you the most difference. I mean oem is aprox 7/16's and if it's not up to par, why just improve by 1/8"? When you can improve by 1/4" for the same price. So this will be best bang for the buck! And if you go rock crawling one day and decide its too much, just put your oem one back on!

Check out "exhausted's" review and pictures on the new style bar install...

Yes there is some difference's. If your worried about giving up the plush ride, but want it to turn a little better, avoiding some of the push in corners and some inside tire lift, then go with the 9/16's. But if your wanting the quad to turn a lot better, virtually eliminate the push and inside tire lift, the 11/16's is the answer. And it still seams to ride smooth to me. It generally always keeps all 4 tires on the ground through rough terrain. Riders I have been with always comment on how they teeter onto 3 or 2 wheels in some off camber ruts, and I roll right through on all 4's. Did you see the photo on the car ramps?

Ya I saw that pic. Looks sick. just when we get into those rocky sections and I fly by all the other guys cause i can't feel those bumps is a hard thing to give up. But even with the thicker bar it still seems smoother than a strait axle.

Yes a lot smoother even with the 11/16's but no, not as smooth as oem. I would trade comfort any day, over being able to turn. Before I added my bar, my quad pushed so bad on blacktop. I couldn't hardly keep in my lane on the country roads in WV following Razr's that only run 65 mph tops. And now with bar I can hold quad right on inside of my lane and ride there ass's or pass at will. Before it was darn right scary to drive.

The top mounts have to be grinned down some. Do a search you should be able to find some info, if not let me know I will look when I have more time.
