    I have an 09 heritage and I want to know what people think about putting Thunderhearders on it?

    T headers are a decent system but if you look at any of them with some miles on them, they discolor pretty bad. IMO that would be enough to look for another 2 into 1 system. JMHO.

    Thanks for your thought. Any recommendations? I am looking for a nice Loud sound (but not too loud).

    I agree with Glider that exhaust sounds are often based on personal taste. I would suggest listening to the many different exhausts on fellow rider's bikes and talking with them when you hear the sound type/level you want on yours. I have met very few bikers that do not enjoy talking about their own rides & upgrades. Ride safe...

    Thunderheaders are a nice looking exhaust but they are very loud, IMO. Supertrapp makes an excellent 2 into 1, in fact, almost every Thunder Mountain bike comes with a ST 2 into 1 on it. They make excellent "usable" power and are tunable as well.

    I like my ThunderHeader. Great sound. I haven't noticed any dicolorqation yet and I'm at about 8500 miles.

    I had Thunderheaders on an ultra a few years back, made my ears bleed and no one wanted to ride behind me... Now I have Vancin Hynes Monster Ovals - they have a low rumble and because the exhaust chamber is so large there is room to move the gas out to get better motor performance without the really loud noice... exhaust is personal choice - think about your riding style, hours, traveling pals and neighbors when making the choice - good luck!
