I thought about doing this as I love my IQR with no sway bar but I figured I was asking for trouble due to the weight of the Nytro.

I have been thinking of doing the same. I have a set of powderhounds also just got them still in box maybe today I will put them on and remove my sway bar too. How hard was it to do? I think it will really help my of trail performance.

I have always removed the sway bar on all sleds. I believe it greatly improves overall handling of sled and you don't get pitched side to side nor do you get as much feed back through the handlebars.

the allen bold on the inside was a pain cuz its so tight and stainless i couldnt use an allen wrench withou stripping.
so i took my saw saw and made a grove on the top side and bottom side of the heald of the bolt. then i could grab it with a good pair of vise gripps.
came rite out. im still waiting for my zbros front end and skiies
these nytros should b recalled i figured out why they dart so bad
every bushing and heim joint has way to much slop in it i cant believe yami did this
the zbros main a arm has a ball joint not a "heim" joint evan ski doo did it this way
jack up the front of your nytro any one with any miles on it, grab the loop of your skii and go up and down with it.
youll shit yourself how loose everything is.
wen i get my new front end im taking all my bushings to my neighbor he is a machinest and i giong to have him make new with much tigher toolerences
for my wifes nytro
i will post wen i get all this done cuz i have read story after story about new skiies etc...
i no its all this slop in the front ends causing the dart problem

Well just put on my new skis and removed my sway bar what a pain in the a**. Zippo you are right the front end is very sloppy. The a arm on the right side sitting on the sled was loose I could tighten the top bolt and it snugged that side up. I checked the left side samething but could not get any turn out of that one so it is still sloppy. Anyway skis look great and hopefully I like it without the sway bar. One quick ? for who ever to get my ski tips up a little more do I shim the front or the back of the ski rubber. They sit pretty flat while off the ground I think I would just be more comfortable if they were up just a fuzz more.
