    I've received a decent amount of questions regarding my feedback on the All Thingz UTV (ATUTV) tender spring swap I did on my R. I figured I'd go ahead and post up a thread here so it can be more easily located when searching, but you may have already read this in my build thread:

    This is the kit I'm referring to: TALON 1000R 2 SEATER TENDER SPRING KIT
    • Are they a drastic, night & day ride quality improvement over stock?
      • No, BUT these are a marginal improvement and for the price point they’re okay. They’re not bad and at the same time they’re not anything to write home about. Again, you’re not receiving – nor are you paying for – a full upper/lower spring and revalve type of ride quality improvement.
      • I don’t do enough high speed riding to really give valuable feedback on body roll, but it doesn’t seem as planted while road riding to me after installing the springs. However, don’t misinterpret that as if it feels unsafe or out of control – to me it just doesn’t feel as planted as the stock setup. That could very well have something to do with me running 32s and increasing my ride height, though, and since I primarily ride slow speed trails this is relatively unimportant to me.
    • What they do well:
      • They are an improvement in small chatter and do seem to feel a bit less harsh at slow speeds. If you’ve ridden a RZR XP it’s still not quite that plush, but it is a bit more plush than the stock Talon R setup.
      • Ride height, in my opinion, is my biggest benefit from these springs. Between the springs and 32s I’ve got my machine sitting up nicely and have plenty of ground clearance (16.5” front and 16” rear without additional gear loaded and me in the machine).
    • Overall impressions:
      • It’s a decent kit. I don’t have anything distinctly bad to say, but I also wouldn’t urge you to go buy them ASAP. If you’re trying to significantly modify the ride quality I’d recommend keeping the $250 and putting it toward something like a setup from Shock Therapy. Classic case of you get what you pay for.

    They made a big difference on my R. soaks up the little stuff better for a smoother ride. I have 32" tires and that helped a lot also.
