      I owned a General before buying a KRX and loved it. I have never been on a Talon so I would like to try it.

    Love watching your videos, but I feel the talon can go a bit faster. On the tracks I race on my times between the talon 1000x and Rs1 are within .5 of each other, so there’s no reason the general should’ve won.

    Nice video I always like talon footage. I wish you guys would get one of the 4 seater talons and do more extensive riding and testing to see how it is and hear your thoughts as I'm considering one. Leaning toward the live valve.

    Just bought a 2019 General and love it! She rips up the trail and still carries firewood around the farm. Hahaha! I am curious how much the tires on the 2020 make a difference?

    Something to think about. Just saw a vid on the Talon 0-60. Between stock tire and 32". Stock +/- 10sec. 32" +/-15 sec. Would’ve made a dig difference I think. Thanks for the content. Always fun and interesting.

    Sous in the Talon would have really destroyed if he dropped lower in that right turn past tree before straight away, in my opinion. Great stuff guys!!

    Hopefully you guys will see this ... what y’all need for the talon is speed healers for the talon from 12’0clock labs .... it basically tricks the ecu into shifting harder faster or slower !! I just had them installed along with a 25% gear reduction to control my shifts ... I spin 35s on pavement in 4wd !! The ecu shifts from speed sensors on the diffs ... you need the H-4 plug 🔌... I believe ... also a tune would help out with the exhaust ... is Honda guys really want y’all to take all the sxs’s to the next level

    I think the tires were the difference. Put stocks back on the Talon and see what happens.

    Lmao, good thing your crazy ass governor said dogs can be walked now. Scary how much the power went to her head.

    The fact that the general out runs the talon says a lot about the poor handling of the talon very sloppy threw the corners

    Uhmm. Maybe why shock therapy basically bashes the talons suspension

  • Jay Harrison

    I can just see the Honda engineers making a list of excuses. LOL But honestly put the stock tires back on the Talon and let it have a second chance. Then if a Polaris crossover is even close, well maybe that’ll help Honda put more power in it.

    Doug, results of general lap timesat 21:50 are messed up. You show Mike in second with the slowest time. Pain killers?

  • Josh burton

    That Talon needs a good Tune to be running 32’s. Contact Hess Motorsports or Complete off-road powersports services and bring that machine to life. Lots of hidden power in that Honda motor.

  • SxuidΨ

    okay not to be rude but im 15 and can drive the talon i have faster than this

  • Jeff

    Need to stiffen the suspension on the talon to help those corners.

  • LGHTSPD675

    Doug, you asked for General mods, this could be a running series! You could do a long term series on how much each mod lowers lap times! Go through the most common types of mods so us regular guys know where we can get the best bang for our buck. Tires, wheels, clutches, shocks, springs, sway bars, ride height, air filters, engine tuners, exhausts, etc. Include unconventional mods as well. My vote for the first unconventional mods on the General - Install a RZR Turbo steering rack (faster ratio). Tighten up the front end feel so it's easy to slide and correct unexpected behavior. Performance improvement prediction? 0.5 seconds a lap (I know, wildly outrageous, but it's more fun to guess big gains!) If the mods work, then sell them in the store!

    Do some mods to the General. I think it would be enjoyed on the channel.

    Curious if the tires make a difference. Also might be worth doing a tire battle/comparison In the future.

    Unbelievable, a piped and shock therapy 64” wide Talon R is any faster than a utility SXS with a dump box. So so impressed. What the heck dude!! Yelp

    Would you guys consider buying some timing gear? Transponder for the cars and a counter for your start/finish line - would be great for lap times!

    I’d be happy with either machine, but.....for everyone that says Polaris is junk, and not a true comparison because the Honda had oversized tires robbing its power blah blah blah, this comparison is between one company’s top sport model against one company’s suv. If the Talon gained a couple seconds then the best you could say is one company’s top sport model slightly edged out another company’s suv. Shouldn’t the “real” gears overcome the big tires if “real” gears are better. When the “real” gear machines come from the factory with the same power as rzrs and canams then we can see if they are so much stronger and more durable. Reminds me of the local fair having an ATV drag race back when scramblers first came out and there were some kids in the stands laughing because the local Polaris dealer was there with a “snowmobile”. It was a new scrambler that cleaned the competition, even Yamaha tri z’s. Lucky for them they didn’t bring a snowmobile or it would have been more embarrassing. Of course Doug knows a few things about dragging sleds.

  • quadjbb

    Polaris general is a great machine. Would love too see you guys install the HCR long travel kit on it. They now have turbos for them as well, really blow the Sox off the crappy talon. Keep up the great work.

    Rick I emailed you about ordering parts tomorrow. I wanted to ask something about the parts before I order them. I couldn't find a number to call. If you can email me back the number would be great. I am wanting to order ASAP.

    Hope Leo is feeling better!! What a great lap battle and who would have thought that stock General would beat the Talon with all the bolt on parts?!? Great video guys!!! It’s 19 or newer YXZ SS SE time!!!! If I lived closer I would let you rip mine. I love it!!!!
