You probably need to widen the bike out as well as get the sway bars. Check some other forums you'll find out what other flat trackers are running.

There are 3 big ones I know of:

Dura Blue
Rath Racing
Lonestar


I and most I race/ride with have used durablue for a very, very long time with good results. Rath is making some very good ones albiet a little more expensive at around 300 bucks. I've never had a Lonestar on my bike but a few friends on hondas haven't had any complaints. I'd probably go Rath (a little better build and adjustability IMO), then Dura blue then Lonestar just based on my experience, but they will all do what you need them to. Check in on the mounting systems for each before you buy, durablue and lonestar have a pretty cock-eyed way of mounting things up to the yamaha bikes but I'm not sure about Rath because I never had to mount one up myself.

well i was lookin at the durablue, but can only find one place to buy from other than their site, and they are 339 plus ship, was trying to find a cheaper place.. yes i do wanna widen it but have limited mone right now, so i figured a sway bar will help a little better for now. i also went to rath web site and they arent making them for the rappy, so i think they are out... i know i was fighting it all night last night being stock..

I bought mine from Magicracing a couple years ago for 260 dollars, now the same darn thing is 340 at their site. Sorry bout that, didn't realize they went up.

Motocross Giant has them for 300 here:

Since the DB is so much, I'd go with the Rath for 310:

This guy has a Lonestar for 265 for a 250R, you might want to check around ebay for better prices on all of them:

i know i might be a little difficult but, dura blue makes one specific to the 700. but will the universal work also? the one motogiant is selling? also on rath web site they dont list one for a universal but i did cross reference on dura blue site the same bar for the 700 is for the honda trx 450, but wondered if the rath racing honda trx450 will work also, may have to call them..

I'd give DB, Lonestar and Rath a call and see what they have to say, I've never put one on a 700R.

after looking my bike over i did notice one thing why the universal dura blue wont fit.. all of the listed quads that the universal wont fit all have piggyback shocks.. this included all raptors, yfz450, honda trx450r and trx400.. so i think iam screwed and have to buy the more expensive setup. a guy on ebay has a wide arm listed and said he could possible get others, i emailed him but havent gotten a response back yet, i hope i get it soon because race is in 2 weeks..
