    I've only seen 1 (not exaggerating here) Honda ATV/SXS break, bend or otherwise damage a suspension arm. It was 680 Rincon that was purposely damaged by the owner for insurance by running it over with a dozer. Not counting Tie-rods, everybody breaks them, that's a sacrifice to not destroy your steering box.

    Arctic Cat has never impressed me with their products. The Wildcat was hyped so bad. Drove one, got to 45 real quick and fell off. The steering shaft was a cable. Nope you can keep it.

    I've got a buddy with a YZX and it sucks for KY terrain, if it's not to the floor it wont climb anything. I cant see why anyone would want 3 pedals in the woods. Too much work for me.

    An ex-coworker of mine and very good friend has rolled his 700 end of end and side to side in the same wreck. Bent the front upper downtube and that's it.

    You know whos never been towed back after a very hard night ride with him, his Dad's P1k and several RZRs?

    The 2 Hondas, I rest my case,

    I think he was saying YOU are the bulldozer.
    You forgot to list the rear prop shaft, how many axles, a few tie rods (Oh yeah, they are wear item) and 3 roofs. :rolleyes:

    Build flimsy half baked tie-rods to save your rack and pinion?
    That is STUPID STUPID STUPID and really STUPID!!!
    That's what my local dealer said just consider your tie rod as a fuse so you don't hurt your rack, NO just build the rack and pinion tuff enough so you can actual do some real off roading.

    I ended riding around in a RZR for part of the weekend this summer when we where down at Mulberry because I bent a tie rod and he was hitting the ruff stuff a whole lot harder then I was and he didn't break anything.

    I guess I will have to cobble a RZR rack and pinion on my Pioneer? NOT!

    Well I have plenty of friends with RZRs and their machines are constantly breaking worse than tie rods.

    They cant keep rear link bars and a-arms from bending.

    Like has been stated before, I bleed red for reason. Lol

    I'm sorely disappointed that they aren't planning a 50' version at this point. If they did, I'd have my name and a deposit on one the day it was released... Guess I'm not getting a Talon- unless the 'woods' version is a lot smaller than the RZR's. I guess I'm gonna have to transplant a P-1000 drive train into a P-500 chassis to get a powerful Honda 50" machine- hard to get a loan for that though....:(
