Wintering in the Arizona desert, dust on the trails is breathtaking. The downward exhaust on the Talon stirs up dust even greater. This week I removed the exhaust tip and redrilled the three bolt holes to aim the exhaust at a 45* angle as pictured. I made a template of the mounting holes and just split the old holes in half. Care must be taken as the new holes need to be exact. The exhaust now exits back and down, the way Honda should have done.
