    If your mechanic is not too familiar with these units... the issue is not necessarily the pump, but the pump chain drive sprocket off the balancer gets loose cause it is only clamped by the nut supposed to have 18# of torque.

    Thanks for the update! Kanab is some awesome country for sure. Pretty close to where I grew up, can’t say I’m not a bit jealous!

    That Talon appears to be an awesome machine. I’ve looked it over pretty good myself. I’ll eventually step up to something else and it is still on my top 3 list. Enjoy!

    So how do you like the Talon suspension compared to the Gen 1 Wolverine? Did you find it to be stiff? Obviously, it probably is a bit stiff till broken in I would imagine. I'm waiting for the Live valve X to come out and see some reviews on.

    The Talon was amazing in Kanab put it on the softest suspension setting and it felt great . My sister-in-law came with us she has first-generation R-Spec it did good she had me drive her machine up some of the more technical stuff and then I would get in my Talon and it was by far better because of more power better suspension, all around had a great time
