I'm not sure what the V&H's power duals are ? I have the Big Shots on my Dyna but I know a guy that has these V&H's on his RK and he likes them alot.

Well if you want to keep the crossover for the lower end tourque, then go with the power duals. If you want the sound of a true dual system and subjectively better looking exhaust then go with the dresser duals.

Although, I don't think the loss of low end tourque is as severe as some people think.

If it were me, since the pipes are both routed the same way for your bike, I would probably go for the power duals...

The power duals do provide a bit more low end torque, not sure if it is enough to know the difference in the seat. Looks wise, I'm not wild about the crossover X pipe thingy. I run the Dresser (true) duals and love the way they sound with my FatShotz

I have the power duals. My friend has true duals on his 2008 CVO roadking, I actually like the look of those better. That being said, I am not sure that V&H makes true duals for the 2011 and up touring. I think the 02 sensor size /connector changed with throttle by wire?

I have the Dresser Duals on my 02 FLHRCI and like the sound and performance. I also put the Arlen Ness big sucker air cleaner at the same time. Finished off with the TTS Mastertuner and the bike runs like a top.

I am going to put the Doherty Power PACC (Air Cleaner Kit) on my 03 CVO SE103 RK. Debating which way to go with exhaust, Power Duals or Dresser Duals.

I like the more traditional looks of the Dresser Duals.

I have a Power Comander III

How much of and increase in Torque and Horsepower did you gain with the new Dyno tune?

Thanks
DR

the dresser duals are harder to tune.
the clys are so far apart because of the extreme diff in head pipe length.
they work good for your application ,when dialed in.
that said why the dresser duals on a 03 instead of traditional true duals? (no crossover under tranny)
I like the power duals. they tune nice and work great when used within there scope,and with the right mufflers.
so if you haven't changed your trans/oil pan? I would find a set of good true duals.
if you changed your pan ....power duals.

I am No Fan of the looks of Power Duals. I want the old style look and would like to get the LH pipe under the frame.
I was interested in "will I get any gain from the classic look over what i have now on my o3 SE103?

If I go x-pipe, it will be the Fulsac x-pipe B, with 09 Heat Shields.
