Thank you for the information. What you are running for shocks and springs?Took the swaybar off my 08 650 last year in Utah and I won't be putting it back on. Couldn't tie it up out of the way because of the way the exhaust runs on the 08 though.
Handling in high speed corners is a little different but if you back out of the gas and then get back on it, it seems to handle fine. May try turning the rear shocks up a knotch or two but overall I like it.
