Default 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

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

75 bucks sounds sweet. Been scouring ebay without that kinda luck. Will stay on it though. Thanks. Heard them over the weekend and my mind is set.
