Mounting the "RonBars" on the new bikes requires that they be lifted a LOT higher that the previous model years...

I talked to several folks that have the 2013 BajaRon sway bar at the Owner Event last week and they all love it.

It's actually easier to install than the 2012 but you need the spyder up high enough to rotate the bar vertical as you remove it. At Lamonts Saturday it looked like they had the front up about 16" - 18" when they were installing bars. They jacked them up then put jack stands under the A frames then removed the jack while they worked. You should be able to eyeball the bar and know when your high enough.

Good Luck with the installation, and let us know what you think of the difference in the handling of your bike!

I have one of thoses motorcycle jacks that you pump with your foot and they work really good. They are rated at 1500 lbs and you just rool it under the bike and pump.
it will lift it up about 16 inches. I use it all the time when i am cleaning it. I can roll around on my little stool and wipe the wheels and the sides real good without bending over.
Just a thought.

Thumbs up 2013 RT and BajaRon sway bar

I had my sway bar installed this morning by my dealer. Even they had trouble lifting the Spyder high enough. The instructions say you need to get the portion where the sway bar is mounted at least 22 to 24 inches off the floor. I have the Sears motorcycle/atv lift, but could not get the Spyder that high. That is why I took it to the dealer. It cost me $94, but was worth it to me. I'm 1 1/2 hours from the dealer by interstate. Riding home it was a joy to pass the big rigs without being blown off the road.

I wonder if you could grab the bike by the upper A-arms, and hoist it?
Or would compressing the suspension with the lifting process be the "poo in the pudding"?
