Recently, I met a fellow UTV enthusiast a month or so back. Turns out that he owns a UTV shop in Prescott AZ, Bad Side x Sides. We discussed swapping out springs (my OEM springs were sagging badly in the rear by this point of ownership). Fast forward a month or so, my 2021 Talon has new Eibach Springs installed with Shock therapy limit straps (front) and a Rugged Radio for the Honda Talons.

As it turns out there's an aftermarket supplier in the UTV marketspace (LM-UTV) who was needing a Talon, also in Prescott, from which to finish fit some parts they want to supply to Talon owners. I offered up my Talon, and as they are just finishing up on their products, I'll supply a few photos for your consumption. At this time, my understanding is that they are going to offer up radius rods, and tie rods with upgraded Heim joints. The pictures I'll provide will show that.

If you are in the Phoenix area, and you're looking for an installer, basically someone to trust your UTV upgrades to, please contact Dan @ (Bad Side x Sides) 928-925-6926. He's awesome to work with, and very accommodating as he has a lot of his clients out of the Phoenix valley.

The manufacturer of the upgraded radius rods and tie rods are LM-UTV and can be found here: Indestructible UTV Parts and Accessories | LM-UTV

At this time I don't believe their website is showing the new Talon parts, but contacting Dan @ Bad Side x Sides will help you net the right parts for your ride. Dan will also help you with the install if you wish.

I also had an opportunity to visit LM-UTV, so a few shots will show the process of fitment, etc. These products carry a lifetime warranty. As an FYI, I'm not associated with either Bad Side x Sides or LM-UTV for any purpose other than being a customer. I'm sharing because the products look awesome, and I needed to replace my slightly bent radius arm. You can see now how much clearance my cart has.

If you rock crawl you need upgraded a arms front and back, radius arms, end links etc., indestructible well if you try hard enough? Nice thing is free replacements. I selected CA and there are several quality vendors out there now!

I knew Polaris vehicles were hard on front suspension and steering parts, but I did not know Honda was having issues too. Or could it be that some folks demand their Hondas to do things better left to dedicated Rock Buggies or super built Jeeps, etc?

I did not purchase mine to sit on the sidelines and watch what others were doing! :cool::)

I've no clue if the talon is susceptible to issues with radius arms, etc. But I can tell you that these are sure nice arms, and the Eibach stage 2 spring upgrade was very much worth it. Also, I had installed Shock Therapy limit straps in the front, those too were way worth it as my tires are very heavy compared to stock. I can tell you for sure that I bent a stock radius rod going over rock. I didn't ask for the upgrade, but they exceptionally well-made products from LM-UTV. I can grab more pics if anyone wants to see them.
