Thanks in advance.

If you remove it, it will take bumps and ruts better/smoother. But... It will want to roll over every time you go around a turn, even at very low speeds.
I would recommend keeping it on.

If you ride off trail and deep snow, removal will improve your ability to lay it over for carving and side hill running.
If you ride mainly trails, leave it or it will roll out on corners and make for difficult handling.

Ok thanks guys. I ride pretty much half and half so I'm thinking leaving it on will be best

I'm not sure about the RMK but my Yamaha's stabilizer bar can be adjusted stiffer or softer by re-orienting the bushings.

Only two seasons up here, Construction and Winter!
