Is everybody disconnecting the sway bar on the xps. I had mine disconnected on my s and liked it better. I disconnected mine on my new xp and rode it around the house i think im gonna like it but i havnt been on a big ride yet. Anybody else have theirs disconnected?

I have owned three different machines and the sway bar came off each of them. XP included...

I have read about this before on the RZR forum, but what exactly is the advantage of it?
Any disadvantages? I have heard more flex, but could it possibly give too much flex and cause CV issues? The way I go through CV's front and back, I have considered limiting straps.
What about riding on the road? Any issues? Seems like my XP already has excess body roll on the corners even just trying to keep up with quads. But it sure makes up for it on the straight aways!!!!
Heck, sway bar may already be broken and I just don't know it.

You will have more body roll for sure. However, it is something you get use to. No matter what speed you are going, no sawybar helps keep the wheels on the ground.

Mine broke and I bought a Cognitto solid bar. Way too much body roll for me.

It depends, if you plan on doing fast fire road riding like those in WV I would keep it on, but if you are riding trails at Brimstone / Windrock etc.. take it off and tighten your springs a few notches

I have kept mine on since 09 because I ride a lot of pavement at high speeds where I live. Other than that, I would take off.
