    Default BajaRon's Custom Performance Sway Bar Update - Ryker

    Our Custom Performance Sway Bar should be ready to begin testing later this week. Have to admit, I'm pretty excited about this project.

    I know a lot of you wish it were available now. And so do I. I am in a hurry, but I don't want to rush it. Shouldn't take long to sort out the details once we start riding it.

    Have you found any tricks to make the install any easier?

    Yes, we think so. Testing will determine for sure, of course. Though our bar should look really cool and perform better than the BRP upgrade. The much easier install may be its biggest selling point.

    The Ryker lift points in the Manual Do Not Look very Consumer Friendly. Hopefully we Do Not have to lift it 24 inches or more?

    Since we are talking about the Ryker here. Only one year. And all models will take the same sway bar and installation process.

    The lift points are not bad. And yes, if all goes well, the lift height will be much more reasonable than on the 2013-2019 Spyer Sway Bar install.

    Got the prototype Ryker Upgrade Sway Bar In today. We hope to have time to install and test it early next week. It's going to be AWESOME! Very happy with how this project is coming along.

    The prototype Riker sway bar worked GREAT! I've been sick for a week so things have been somewhat on hold for the next step.

    We are making 1 more prototype with some minor changes to the original. I will install this one soon, test it, and it should be good to go into production. We landed very close to the mark with the 1st prototype. Bearings for the custom links are in and we are making several prototypes to see what we like best. Since the links are very visible, the look is important. Of course the bar will look and perform better than the BRP upgrade bar. But the best thing about this bar kit is going to be the ease of installation. It will be the easiest install of any sway bar kit I've made so far. If you have tried to install the BRP upgrade bar on your Ryker, you know what i am talking about.

    These projects never happen as quickly as I'd like. But I want the product to be as flawless as possible on the 1st run. I don't want customers wishing they had waited for version 2.0, if you know what I mean.
