Yes they will fit, I have 8' doors and have no problem. Also the Talon is easy to slide up and down if it doesnt quit fit

It will clear, I have two on a 2015 zx250 , about 2" taller than the motor in stow position. They are about 3" shorter than 8 ft blades on last skeeter.

Best option is to buy the tilt bracket so you can lay it down on the back deck and never have to worry about it hitting any roof or door that you're backing under.

It will fit,but I highly recommend the tilt bracket for getting under bridges when the lakes are high.

I have a ZX20 Skeeter. My garage doors are 8'0 and my Talons are 10". They work like a champ.

I've got a couple buddies that have 12'0 Talons and don't like them as well as 10'. The additional weight really does make a difference.

And personally I wouldn't waste my money on tilt brackets for a 10' Talon, my SHO sits higher than the Talons do

I contacted a Talon rep prior to buying my 10's. The 10 footers are in a shorter case than the 8 footers. I guess the 8 footers are a 2 phase deploy where as the 10 and 12 footers are a 3 phase. My 10's are just about even with the top of the motor when it is trimmed down. They may be 2 inches taller... I beleive the 12's will be a good bit taller though. This is why I went with 10's.... and have been very happy!
