Duramax Yamaha had a recall on their Rhinos and removing the rear sway bar was part of it. My '07 really handles better without it. Has a little more lean but doesn't want to lift the opposite front wheel off the ground on a tight turn. I think it lets the IRS do it's thing much better.

The effect of a sway bar, which is a big torsion spring, is to increase the spring rate on the outside suspension. It also couples the suspension which helps to limit camber changes...so ya...it does more than just increase spring rate, but for this quad, the effect is similar.

I'm sure you guys like your sway bars, but what you're doing is really just adding heavier springs to the rear shocks which without the proper valving, rebound and dampening to go with it, will give you a less than optimum ride. Once you ride anything that has had the suspension setup for you, you'll never want to go back to anything else.

Patrickk I noticed that too. The first couple times riding I felt like I was learning to drive a standard for the first time again... Ha!

Got used to it pretty quickly though.

I don't, but can look in the manual. I think what it needs it a different shaped eccentric inside the housing to give it less travel around low throttle opening. Switching it to fly by wire would be cool as then you could adjust the servo to suit your riding style!
