Give Cernics a PM here or call, I will not lie but the rotary ones like this are usally expensive but well worth it.

Thats debateable - most of the factory guys are sponsored by PE and dont have to fork out several hundred dollars for one.
If you can prove to me that one of these is 2 or 3 times better than a Denton/PEP then I'll retract this statement.
I remember Doug Gust once saying on his website that the 'cheaper' ones work just fine !

Sorry I should have put IMO. I have run the cheaper ones and when I put a rotary one (Ohlins/Scott) on one of my quads I could definatly tell the difference. The rotary ones are much smoother and more adjustability in them IMO.

The only reason I got this instead of just the mounting kit from Scotts is they havent made one for the zuki yet and I need to run a stabilizer. once you ride a few times with one on you will hate to ride a quad without one!

Yes the difference between any damper and none at all is huge. You gotta have something !

For me it eliminates all the side to side jarring that you get on narrow knarly trails.
When hitting continuous obstacles the bars usually fling your arms from side to side - this eliminates this and it generally tracks straight ahead instead.
Great for eliminating fatigue on longer rides

Ride Harder!

I have been debating a Precesion myself. Im just trying to convince myself its worth the extra 300 bucks!

Armoks, I see you installed some steel braided lines. Did you notice a large improvement. I am a little leary because I dont want to lose brake feel.

While these brakes are good the ones on my 450R where just a tad better. I am thinking about Wave Rotors when they become available.

As for the stabilizer. In my experience the biggest improvements comes in rutted out sweeping corners where you are hanging off your quad, and the ruts are trying their best to rip the bars right out of your hands not to mention throw you to the outside of the corner. The stick style stabilizer helps this siutation, and the Precision darn near cures it.

So its basically the difference of, taking a pill to stifle the symptoms, or taking the cure!

I haven't ridden it since I switched out the lines. The feel from just pulling on them is a little tighter but Im waiting on my shocks to get back from MX Tech to ride this thing. I can't Wait for the Waves to come out either when I switched over to them on my Dales it dramaticly changed the brakeing.

I don't need one because the LTR has alot better steering than the YFZ, so i don't know where dirtwheels said it has too light of steering and likes to slide out.

thats odd. every magazine or online article ive read with a test ride said its damn hard to get the r450 steering light. and riding it every day i can vouch for that as well. however a stabalizer would be nice, the amount of woods trail riding i do almost requires it, i just dont have the money to fork out for one. maybe i should stop buying go-fast gear and start buying keep-you-going-period gear lol

I have been looking into a stabilizer aswell. I ride desert where it is whooped to hell and rocky as well... well most of you know what happend to my brakes. I don't like the PEP one because how it mounts it looks like part of it sticks out of the quad.

Thats the main reason I reaaly went with a rotary one everything is tucked up uner the frame. I got to take this for a ride and WOW this stabilizer is the bomb! Going through a woops section you piont the bars in the direction you want to go and they stick there! You stay right on course instead of getting you're arms smacked back by the bars!!

Did you use the stock stem or Fuel's? I was thinking of getting the Fuel Stem and new bars when I do it since the whole thing would be ripped apart.

Hey Kyle I sent you an email about some tires :D

I just added the Precision Stabilizer and its nice. I put on trail Teck X bars and their bar clamp kit that holds the lights also. I went one step further while it was all apart. I drilled a small hole in the bottom of my stem and filled the top of the stem till it came out of the hole in bottom with two part epoxied which cures harder than steel. I don't think the stem will ever bend. I though while the plastics were off I would do it up. I can say that the stabilizer helps out allot. Weather its better than the cheaper ones. That I will not be able to answer. Never used one. I can tell you this much. It is well built and installs quickly.
