I have noticed that when I charge hard into tight corners my quad tries to roll up on two wheels. I have a completely stock front end, wheels and tires. I haven't been able to adjust this out with with spring, compression, and rebound. I was wondering what everyone has done to combat this problem.

Does anyone run a durablue anti-roll bar? I rode a stock 08 LTR an it steered heavy and had no roll issues.
I can't believe an extra couple inches of length in a-arms will cure this. I mean the Kawi already has a wide front end.

Is it in the suspension geometry/alignment? (caster,camber,toe)
Is it the stock tires? (too tall,round on top,tall sidewall)
Are the shocks too stiff, soft, just crap? (have tried adjusting and the rebound screw seems to function but don't feel a noticeable difference when adjusting compression on the fronts or rear, high speed included)
Will the anti-roll bar help?

Thanks in advance

anti roll bars are mainly for flat track racing quads, the couple of extra inches that extended a arms offer do help. You've even seen the proof yourself by riding the ltr. New tires will help. Maxxis rarz 2's on the front.

Some of your issue is probably technique also. But like topdollr said the sway is mostly for flat track. I deally if your gonna spend th eextra cash on a-arms and an axle, go with a long travel front end.
