Yes - evoluzione.net, inc.
"This adjustable swaybar was developed for the performance minded owner who would like to improve the front end feel while maintaining a comfortable ride. this swaybar will help to improve cornering by maintaining a more level attitude of the spyder through corners."

Ken of Evoluzione comments- "a stiffer bar reduces the tendency of the spyder to want to lift the inside front tire. it has to do with roll center (location of the bikes center of gravity)."

I have a sway bar fitted to my SE5.
It was from Evoluzione and is one of the best things I have fitted. The bike feels a lot more stable and gave me more confidence when going into corners.
Prior to fitting it, I could feel a nasty little jerk before the suspension seemed to settle into the corner. The sway bar took that away.

I have had this upgraded sway bar on my RS-5 for a couple of months now. It is the single biggest improvement to the vehicle. The Spyder is more sure-footed, the "tippy" sensation at low speed is eradicated. No loss of feel, no discernable effect on the VSS. It is money and time well spent.

Seems like a great upgrade. Is it something a complete novice could install with basic tools?

yes its pretty simple. May take you an hour or so but that's to remove and fit the trunk. Some owners have done it without removing the trunk completely. See instructions at http://www.evoluzione.net/instructio...structions.pdf

Looks like a pretty easy install. Even a dumb thumb "mechanic" like myself could likely pull this off.

Thanks for the info.

Talking Anti-sway bar

Howdy. Up till now I have just been a lurker, but I wanted to report that I had an Evoluzione anti-sway bar installed on my '08 RS. It handles like a different machine. Much more stable at low speeds, and is a dream in the twisties. Should'a done it a long time ago.
