You'll get no arguments from me, discussing and getting others opinions is only a smart thing to do. I've about decided to take mine off and if I do not like it just put it back on. I think getting some of the bounce out of the Ace will really suit me and letting the suspension work on what we call the "Girlie" trails will be a great improvement. I'm going to try and hit WV not this coming weekend but the next and give it a work out. Thanks for the opinions. I'll keep and eye on this post for any more info.Not trying to contradict you for argument, just food for thought/discussion:
When a company puts something on a machine, it might be that they have sacrificed functionality in favor of safety, sometimes more than you needed them to - but they are designing "for the lowest common denominator". They are designing to make the machine relatively safe for people of all skill and experience levels. So the sway bar is there to make the suspension resist rolling, which a skilled rider might not need or want.
Also, you can still use your body weight to help in situations with the ACE. That is, unless you have a restrictive harness. Since I have the factory seat belt on still, and it allows me to move a little, I sometimes reach out and grab a roll bar and use it to help pull my upper body to one side or the other to help with tippy situations. It doesn't help nearly as much as on an ATV, but it does help.
