Well the 2010 XP's have a modified rear end setup. I don't know what the driving force was for the change but its obvious that , the sway bar is now is flipped to the rear of the quad and its about 3 inches longer and provides about 1 more inch of wheel clearance for the tires.

One thing it didn't like is now instead of 2 upper control arms for the rear wheels there only one now. They took the tubular steel and made it a huge square block that travels on the front side of the quad and links into both the front and rear bolt holes where the old rear link used to be.

I know tubular steel is stronger than box steel and this seems like a quick hacked together part that might be weaker than the original setup.

I don't know if this improves handling, but one positive of the whole thing is some guys are happy about the change since now they don't have to run offsets to get the tire clearance needed for those big tires.
