Coming from a Razor "fan" with buddies "in the business" I wouldn't put too much stock into what they said. I bet it was a gross over-exaduration of the real situation. There have been no reports of transmissions "burning up", just a handful of reports that the clutch temp light has come on.my buddy a razor fan and most of his buddies are to some are in the business as sales mang. ect…. they went on a big ride in west va on the hatfield & mccoy trails this weekend he said they are seeing some transmissions come in that are getting to hot and burning up anyone have or know of this problem mine is doing fine we were thinking maybe abusing high range instead of using low when they need it?
If you bog down a Talon and get stuck and the wheels are not spinning and you stay on the gas, you can trigger the clutch temp light. Simple solution is to stop, put it in park and leave it running for a minute and the cooling system will cool the clutches down. Put it in LOW to get unstuck. If you are truly stuck, use your winch.
If you keep trying to spin your wheels when you are stuck in mud, you will generate lots of heat regardless what you drive. However, with a belted machine, you blow a belt without any warning. With a Talon, you get a warning light and save your machine (and your day) by simply waiting a couple minutes. I guess your razor buddies prefer blowing belts ?
