Thunderheader slip ons

Hello: tried a search and have been looking thru exhaust forums but have not found anything. Does anyone run the Thunderheader Thundercones/slip ons? Thoughts? Sound level and type? They sound great on YouTube but those are mostly full exhausts. Anyone running, or have run, just the slip ons? Thanks all.

I have always liked the look and sound of the Thunderheaders. I spotted a new Shark at the dealer the other day sporting Thunderheader Slip-ons and it looked sweet. Did not think to snap a picture.

Here is one pic I have saved, not a Roadie but looks nice with the exhaust.

Father in law has then on this Road King......sounds like a thunder header but in stereo I think they sound great in person, I ran a thunderheader on my last build, 2:1 with a falsee. Personally like the sound of the true dual setup a little better, has a little more "uniform" sound to it and can still wake the dead when you want to

As for looks, well, looks like a thunderheader X2 LOL not the most attractive exhaust on the planet, but it's accepted because of what it/they are.

If you like the thunderheader sound, no doubt you'll like the thundercones with a true dual header

We picked his set up on CraigsList for $250, there's a few used sets out there if you keep your eyes peeled in the usual places

Good ain't cheap, cheap ain't good.......

I have a set on mine cause I couldn't afford the hole set up I found mine on EBay for $75. I like them they are very loud and distinctive

I've been running them for about a year (behind FM 2-1-2), love the exhaust note. It got a lot louder after the cam swap
