sway bar

Now that these have been out for a while what are you guys seeing. Thinking abut a rear only just to help with the push on tight trails.

I've adjusted the way that I ride, and haven't found that I needed one.

The Sway bar helped me out Alot on the Low Speed Pushing, Makes the quad rotate good in a tight area. Made a difference for me even after i bought new tires, and didnt make the ride harsh. Yah a stock sway 700xx can be made to turn tight...but now i do it with less throttle and leaning. Plus the rate is now set up for a rider my size and weight.

I got the Sonic Sway bar BTW

In retrospect:
If i had got the sway bar before the tires it prob would have had a more profound effect.

This is kinda a Quiet debate alot of people have...whats better tires or sway bar. I just got both to see for myself..couldnt be happier

Since i also have some Car Suspension background i can point out that the stock system on our quads use a rubber bushing also...that over time will deteriorate and add alot of slop to the system.

I adjusted a bit also. 20 years of riding/racing hare scrambles on various 2 wheelers am no stranger having my weight over the front wheel(s) when turning, but I find it harder on the quad. Still if the sway bar makes it easier to manuver for $450 I will probably give it a shot.

I'm definitely tempted to buy one. I am afraid that it may affect the suspension feel/travel in the rear though. I like the way my baby turns now, after getting used to it and with the new rubber on all four corners, but if this can make it that much better then I should start saving my pennies. All 45,000 of them!

Hey guys I'm glad those of you that have the anti roll bar are enjoying them. I just wanted to keep everyone posted on our progress,over the weekend Joe Byrd and Nick DeNoble both raced using our anti roll bar on the front of their ATV's in the AMA MX national. Joe got a tough start in his first moto and fought from 11th off the hole shot all the way up to 3rd. It was amazing race to watch and his lap times were some of the fastest of the day even though he had to do all that passing. His ATV was extremely fast. We didn't get to use the anti roll bar in the second moto because we don't have a rain setup nailed down and the track was slick from the rain. I was very happy with the weekend and both riders loved the stable feel of the front end!




I'm hoping to do some testing with some of the GNCC pro racers soon as well. The anti roll bar adds a nice stable feel to a really soft front suspension setup. The torsion bar rates are all adjustable and different rate torsion bars can be used to add just a little bit of roll stability all the way up to a lot.
