You guys using sway bars are crazy. Daredevils I say!
I wouldn't dare run a sway bar but I do use an anti-sway bar in the V Strom Thingmobile and it's the cat's pajamas. The rig corners much flatter with the anti sway system compared to when it is disconnected. I have found on washboard gravel and dirt roads it works best to keep the linkage connected and intact. If the road gets really rough I disconnect it and let the two sides articulate independently. Claude gave me quite a bit of inspiration in building my anti-sway system. I'm really glad I heeded his advice. Claude, as always thank you four your counsel!
Dana, Mine does not do anything to limit ground clearance as my bar travels through the main frame and is isolated with flange bushings.
