Hess Motorsports is proud to offer the 10-80 Dirt Sports Intake Kit
Talon Intake Pre-filter Kit
10-80 Complete Talon Intake Pre-filter Kit
Each kit includes:
(1) Intake tube, your choice of color
(1) Desertcraft Pre-filter
(1) Filterwears cover
The Talon has a horrible engine air intake location that inhales too much dust which shortens primary air filter life. In dusty conditions, you might get as few as 200 miles on an air filter before having to replace or clean a reusable aftermarket filter.
The filter comparison shown in photos is after 200 miles on the same days in the same trail conditions. The cleaner filter actually had 400 total miles on it.
So, 10-80 Dirt Sports has taken on the challenge to design and build our own Talon Intake Pre-filter Kit. Our intake kit is designed to capture cleaner, cooler air than the OEM intake and pre-filter that air to extend the life of the OEM or any aftermarket primary air filter you choose to run inside the OEM air box.
Dyno tests show zero loss in horsepower with this system versus the stock intake with both tests using an OEM primary filter.

Features and Benefits:

Desertcraft key features:
Desertcraft uses industrial quality, dry synthetic media with more open area than the primary filter for lower airflow restriction. These filters are USA-made high quality and will last a long time. This dry media filter uses no oil and includes easy cleaning instructions for reuse. Dyno tests show zero loss in horsepower with this system versus the stock intake with both tests using an OEM primary filter.
Filter wears cover key features:
- Reduces overall maintenance cost
