Sway Bar

I have purchased an 08 Apex GT LTX. I was wondering if any knows if they had updated the sway bar or if it is still a 10 mm. bar. I log in about 700 miles last year on an Apex GT and although it had the Ohlin shock package it still seemed like ot needed to be flatened out some. Also where could I order a larger diameter sway bar?
wow this is great,

Is there a list like this for the rs ventures? I have a 2011 brand new and would love to see more details on what and how to do things on this beast.

We have been building these lists over the years.. nothing yet but just ask the question and we will assist you the best we can on what to do... there is quite a few things that overlap with different models.
I noticed the link for the error codes no longer works so I thought I would upload them here..
