Some do it and like it. I personally don't like the body-roll..in fact I think my Z8 has too much body roll with it connected...let alone unhooked. With that being said without it connected it will increase articulation and smooth-out all trails especially rocky trails as well as allow more flexing on washed-out, rutty trails. On my Brute Force I liked the ride with it off but the body roll made it feel like it was going to fall-over on corners...dangerous... so I came to a compromise...I built some compression mounts that allowed me to relocate the a-arm mount points inward toward the frame 1.5 inches which changed the ratio and allowed more independent movement without giving up much stability on corners. Where you are it might be fine so try it and see. You can always put it back on.

Easy to remove the bar. Just try it and see how it goes. Just take it easy for a bit until you get used to it.

Thanks for the advise. Will try eventually with my Z6.

I made a little of research and several Razor 570 users recommend replacing the rubber holders for Teflon/Poliurethane, and add a grease point. Is that better than disconnect the Sway Bars?

Some of us have done this and I do have a How To with a video in the How To section with the ones to get. This does not increase articulation, it actually reduces it as the soft crushing action of the rubber bushings is replaced with non-crushing urethane making it more of a bearing surface. It does reduce body roll for increased control though and the ones we get already have grease fittings.

There is one thing I need to throw-in. Because of the odd size of tubing CFM uses the bushings fit it a little too tight. This in a short time clears the grease and near-seizes the bushing to the bar. All you have to do us when you install these, dry-fit them first..fully mount them to test.. and with either sand paper or a rat tail file, clear some of the polyurethane from the bushing so it rotates freely..not loosely.. on the bar prior to greasing it. This will also stop it from squeaking as it will when it starts to seize. No biggie...just a slight adjustment.
