Anyone unhooked the antisway bar in the rear of the rincon.... I can see where it would be needed in fast trail riding... but in the mud and woods'in it would be great to have disconnected.... Even a set of quick disconnects would be sweet to have....

Anyone tried this?

Polaris made a Diesel quad just a couple of years ago. Year 2000 maybe?

It would be great for articulation... make a comfortable ride...... But would hinder high speed cornering..... I do it on my jeep whenever i offroad.. Just thought it would make sence on my quad too.....

I have seen pictures of before and after on a Grizzley and it made a vast difference in articulation. Here is the link to some pics.

I removed the swaybar from my Grizzly and it made for a great improvement. But I'm not so sure it'd help the Rincon... but who knows. :)

All I can say is sweet. I unhooked them for a ride out ice fishing..... I did not do any high speed turns but it seemed very responsive cornering... I ussually take a paved trail out to the bay but decided to take a plowed field. I only take this when to many cops on the paved trail... And it rode great... Out on the ice I could not feel a bump.... Really, it rode just a little better than stock, the ride has decreased since the 26" mudlites.... But its back...

I am going to do some hill and trail testing once it quits snowing.....

As long as you are not power cornering, its great.... It gets more traction for hills and in rough stuff.... I am making a set of quick disconnects.... Just to make it easier to change... It makes that big of a difference that i am going through all this shit....LOL....

2 wrenchs and about 3 min, and you are free. another 3 min and your back to factory. unhooked mine today, smoother ride, much like a artic cat 650 v twin. great off road, rear wheels stay on the groung all the time! higher speed handling on gravel was almost unchanged, but cornring (at any speed) was a little diff cuz booth the front and rear dive a little. i like it, i think i will leave it unhooked for a while and see if it work over time.

KD is right... Its real easy... But in mud, and under use... It is not feasable to hook and unhook them like that.... At least for me....

I will keep you guys posted... and it should be a simple thing to make.... Once I get it engineered so it does not hit anything under there...
