    We purchased a pair of Talons, my wife bought one and I bought the other actually. I immediately noticed that one had the exhaust outlet positioned differently from the other one. All of the other units they had in stock had the pipe pointing straight down toward the ground between the rear tire and the plastic muffler shroud just like my other machine. The odd unit had the pipe pointed out and kinda up from the vehicle as pictured. I guess someone on the assembly line was playing around ?

    I saw another picture of one like that on this site. I thought they just moved it to that position. Maybe not?

    You’d think the dealerships would catch stuff like this during prep.

    I actually think I like it better this way as the factory position could possibly add heat to the right rear inner tire sidewall. I checked the heat and it doesn't affect the plastic muffler cover, so I ended up changing the other machine to match this one. The only issue I could see is that water could enter easier than when they are turned down. Most of the aftermarket exhaust systems turn the exhaust out the back at some type of horizontal direction.

    I think dealerships CAUSE things like this during prep!

    Yeah that's definately an assembly fail and a dealer prep fail.

    Its places like this that make every dealer look bad.
