    Anybody thinking about getting the Super Atv A-arms for there talon I would highly recommend getting the bushing kit they offer separately. Trying to get the bushing out of the factory A-arms is almost impossible and makes what should be a quick and easy install a total pain. IMO they should just come with bushings in the from the start.

    If they are anything like the arms for the Pioneer you might as well order two sets of bushings and save on shipping.

    What did you apply to the plastics to make them black or is that factory?

    It is the blue X model with all the graphics removed. It is actually like a gun metal gray and i'm about to wrap the rear blue fenders the same grey color.

    I'm having a tough time deciding between X and R. One of the things I'm considering is tire size. I want to be able to run up to a 32" tire. I may go 31" tire, but would like the option to go 32". A couple questions for you:

    1) on your X model, with just the 5/2 wheels, do you think 32" would clear on the front without the forward A-arms? I'd prefer to keep with stock A arms if possible

    2) I've seen several comments on the rear shock mount being close to the tire. So you are running a 5/2 wheel with a 1.5" spacer. If you were just running the 5/2 wheel without the rear spacer, would it hit the rear shock mount? Or is the 1.5" spacer required to clear the shock mount?

    Basically I want to keep as stock as possible and run 32" tire. I know the R model can do this.

    Thanks!

    If you run just the 5/2 wheels the X model it will clear 32" but will slightly rub in a hard turn or in a turn with the suspension compressed. In the rear with 5/2 wheels it will clear the shock mount i ran the 1.5 spacer to have the front and rear width match or else it end up being a 1.5 inches narrower in the rear. 31" tires with 5/2 wheels won't rub at all depending on the true height measurement of the tire.

    If you wait I am sure other company’s will come up with back spacing. I am ordering STI 6+1 for the front and 4+3 for rears, 15X7 for both and was told this will track the same and be factory width

    That combo will track the same as stock. I personally wanted the same tire size and rim size so the spare i carry will work on all 4 corners and not be different.

    Do the 5+2 and spacers seems to be a common thing. I was going to but due to some of my riding conditions I want stock width.

    How much room do you have on ethe SATV arms and the front wheels ATVs full compression and full lock?

    I ran into an issue with the SATV arms and the wheels I am running on my 1000-5

    I don't know exactly but at least an 1" or more of clearance with the 32" tires. they claim you can clear 34" tires with the satv arms.

    I meant clearing the wheels themselves without spacers. The SATV on my 1000-5 rub the inner beadlocks at full lock and full compression, I had to grind about 3/16" off of a corner of the lower bad joint mount.
