Is there anything that makes you cringe more than feeling your Honda Talon bottom out while you’re out off-roading? As soon as you hear and feel it happen, you get that sinking feeling in your stomach and pray that you didn’t cause any serious damage to your Honda Talon and the rest of its suspension system. If you had taken the time to fix your Honda Talon’s faulty shocks and springs, you would never have to experience this feeling. Old and worn out shocks and springs on your Honda Talon not only risk causing damage to the rest of your Honda Talon’s suspension system but make off-road riding way more uncomfortable than it needs to be. In fact, bad shocks and springs on your Honda Talon are the number one cause for you and your passenger’s sore bottoms. Avoid all these unnecessary complications and more by replacing your Honda Talon’s shocks and springs.
The Honda Talon’s OEM shocks weren’t exactly built to last. When you notice them going bad, it’s already too late. Unlike live valve shocks for the Honda Talon — which have more components and thus more ways of going wrong — the Honda Talon’s OEM shocks can be replaced with different affordable options if they go bad. Whether you just want basic OEM shock and spring replacements for your Honda Talon or a set of the latest and greatest aftermarket UTV shocks, we’ve got the Honda Talon shocks and shock accessories for every riding application. We have shock upgrades that replace the shock caps for live valve shocks that are sagging, clunky, or rattly. If your Honda Talon feels flattened out like an old school muscle car, replacing your shocks will help give you a smoother, more comfortable ride. And for those that want greater suspension length, we have longer Honda Talon shocks with more travel that won’t bottom out on rugged whoops or rough landings. Adding some preload can help mitigate sag, but to get rid of that uneasy body roll feeling, some aftermarket shocks from companies like Shock Therapy or FRC will certainly help.
Shock Therapy specializes in Honda Talon shocks and springs, and they were among the first companies out of the gate to test shock setups and conduct R&D for the Honda Talon. As far as spot-on tuning and proper weight setups, Shock Therapy knows what it takes to make quality UTV shocks and shock kits. Not to be outdone, FRC has also been in the side-by-side shock and spring business for years, having seen great success in Razors and YXZs with pro drivers at the Lucas Short Course. Although they specialize in premium springs and shock work, FRC doesn’t make shock kits, instead opting to create customized suspension setups for different editions of the Honda Talon and riding styles. This might be great for Honda Talon live valve shocks that are low on nitrogen, which only need to be recharged back up to 200 PSI in both the front and rear. If, however, the issue stems from deeper issues or damaged components, a new shock or complete shock kit is likely needed.
