Hello, been lurking on here for sometime to get info on what Honda to buy either the 1000 X-4 or the Pioneer. Finally pulled the trigger on the Talon X-4 a couple months ago so I figured it was time to join this community too. Man there is so much info on here and all the mods ppl have done as well. Great community to say the least. I'm not new to SxS as I have had a utility Kawasaki Terex 2 seater for several years and decided to trade it in for the Talon. After reading a lot of ppls horror stories with engine issues I thought it was just unfortunate luck for ppl until it happened to me. I have enjoyed the machine up until 100 miles on it and thought that I was in the clear from what ppl had to say about theirs until mine completely locked up on me. So I called the place I bought it from to come pick it up to fix it to find out that the sub transmission was completely locked up and they put a claim in to fix it. Thats been a month now since its been in the shop and still don't have it back. Sorry for the first post being so long but I wanted to see if any others have had similar issues? What was the outcome? Does it run better now than before and are there any other issues I should look out for?
