Which would you rather rip? Talon or General?!
General XP all the way
Where is this ? I see a flying J, im an otr driver, would be cool to meet up sometime if im through!
I’m in the market for a four seater side-by-side I have only rode in a can am Defender Which looked and feel more like a golf cart my first pick was a Polaris general or Honda talon I was wondering what you guys think about comfort and safety on those machines ? I haven’t got a chance to sit in either one front or back besides a razor which seems very tight in the back Looks like add-ons are cheaper on the Polaris being I want to put a turbo on my machine Comfort and safety are top priority Thank for some feed back
Depends what you’re looking to achieve. The talon and general are both excellent units
I would love to see you guys long travel that xp general..
Is the Polaris general stock in this time trial if you said I missed it.
The new Yamaha Rmax 1000 is supposed to be direct competition to the general. Hope you guys can get ur hands on one
Doug's voice sounds like Kermit the Frog.
What part of Michigan
Put a turbo kit on the General
Totally love watching you guys wish I was there riding keep up the good work boys
You guys need to get the new Yamaha Wolverine rmaxx 1000 ya man it’s about time
Did I just hear that jeans can't be worn in 80f(26c) weather? Dafuq?
Honda Turbo Please
Your times would be a whole lot faster if your corners were bank just saying keep having fun..
How come sxs blog guys haven't turboed the talon yet?
Haven’t been able to get our hands on one yet
Will you guys do a turbo kit for one I’m in Australia and am looking at the general it does everything I want it to and would love to turbo it and have more power at my disposal
WAIT YALL ARE FROM MICHIGAN
What's the thorts on the general to the commander
I was rooting for The General the whole time! 🙌🏻
I honestly wasn't thrilled when you guys hooked up with Cleetus (because I like Cleetus), but I had only watched about 2 of your videos prior. You just seemed so half-assed (the Textron XX jump comes to mind). However, I have now watched a lot of your videos (because I'm looking into a sxs purchase) and I apologize for dismissing all of you. You guys work hard, know you shit, and play hard too. Not everything is going to be perfect and you do what you can to make things even keel. I'm in the process of going through a TON of your vids, and I'm definitely a new sub. I hopefully can find some trail/sport comparo's and also some real-world (educated with a large sample size) opinions on makes/models through your videos. So, long story short, keep up the good work and hopefully some more "cheaper priced" machines can filter in now and again. Sorry for being a jerk. Sincerely, Internet Stranger Guy.
When are we gonna see a turbo on the talon ?
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.
I wanna see the footage of leo after the jump, before he was laying on the floor with his dog.. lol.
Plse mod the General look forward to that
Great video’s guy’s very entertaining to watch 👍
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.
I would love to see scrambler more, but you guys never fail to entertain was surprised by the Generals performance
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!!
Great video Leo I hope you’re OK. Good to see your dog getting around.
Lot of Jaw jacking, aka hack, yack
Doug Lol beat nick.. awesome. Lol
Threee wheel Doug
That general gets it!
Leooooooo.... hello we don’t need the editor to die...
Def like the new mike reed on the channel. Old reed was a cocky douche. Haha. Awesome vid as slways 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
Bank that hairpin around the final tree. That would clean up the machines wanting to roll.
The general should match mudlyfe tbh I'm just commenting to comment lol help ya guys out as much as I can you guys are a great buncha dudes having a great time living your best life
Am I the only one that wants to leo in beast mode ripping
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
just seen the krx 1000 stock on dyno in two wheel drive, 85 whp, 57 ft.lbs. torq
More General content please!
Uhmm. Maybe why shock therapy basically bashes the talons suspension
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?
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.
okay not to be rude but im 15 and can drive the talon i have faster than this
Need to stiffen the suspension on the talon to help those corners.
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.
Anybody else see that coming? "I'M JUST GONNA SEND IT" oof
Man Polaris has come along way since the old days. Pretty impressive.
So where is the battlefield unit?
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
Not really blog topic but what condition does your dog have? Mine has some skin issues didn’t know if you knew anything good to use.
Sorry to hear that.
Hey Leo I hope you do not have spinal problems anyway you should bring back the OG intro for a week that would be cool I miss the old beat
Leo, how’s your butthole?
Great video hope Nick is ok. I don’t think I have ever seen him leave and not come back. Come back Nick I bet you would have beat all there times in both machines.👍👍
Feeling better now but she's still hurt lol
where did we end up on the Monster sxs build to make Mud Life look small? To scratch that monster truck itch
What shocks and specs are on the Talon?
Leo went full ghoul... or should I say goon?
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!
Did he get his phone back
Get another yxz on the channel!!!!!
I like my general. But I would like more HP for my tracks 👍😎😁
Make a mud build with the scrambler
Y’all need one of those tripod deer stands so y’all Can film over the trees
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.
RIP. Leos tailbone.
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.
Hell yeah brother!!
Wanna see the race unit do laps and jumps
That was a fun video guys! I really enjoyed this. Thanks!
where the 2020 yamaha yxz
More big jumps on the scrambler!
You should build another berm so you come out of the left hander after the jumps right into a right hander.
God bless yall!
general xp TURBO would be cool
Oh man, relatively new follower and love the content but I didn't know you were doing this under the thumb of "literally Hit ler"... even more respect for getting er done. Love the content guys keep it up.
Did Sous just say meow? 😆
Leo crazy balls move jumping that! Way to go!
Ouuccchhh and that's why I don't have a back rack on my Renegade 😬 My tailbone is throbbing for you Leo!
Hey you guys I hate to say it but I think the old Gauntlet back at dark house is a lot more challenging Gauntlet course then the one that you guys are currently running at your shop I would really love to see some of those Vehicles me and ran at the old gauntlet even with the higher horsepower it would make it even more challenging to get it around the old Gauntlet course with the higher horsepower
Btw if you have the talon in sport mode you can still down shift with the paddles. Judt an fyi
I’d like to see how a similar hp can am would do, you only have high hp models. Maybe flash base mode back to 120hp for track time day?
You need a hand brake to rip that final corner!!!
Put poles around the track with gopros so we can see different views of that track. Think 8t would make it that more enjoyable
Happy to see you guys playing around with the General. I have a General 4 and wouldn’t trade it in for anything. But I am a hunter and that’s why I purchased this unit. Love ❤️ the content guys thank you for all you do. 👍
Fuckin leo......out here casin shit
