Onan Generator Exhaust Pipe

Just a tip from the Onan man I though might be helpful to others. I recently replaced the muffler on my generator. It had become rusted and was getting louder and louder. The original exhaust had a looooooong tailpipe out of the muffler, turning 90 degrees and exiting just before the rear wheels (along with the driver's side exhaust.

I bought the new muffler from Onan but they didn't sell the tailpipes. After several trips to all of my favorite auto parts places and one motorsports place I had no tailpipe. I called the Onan guy back and he suggested using a 90 degree metal conduit from Home Depo to make the turnout.

Sure enough a $3.76 1-1/4" 90 degree conduit piece works great.
