I just saw on Drag Specialties November "Skinny" that Cycle Shack is now making a true dual exhaust header for dressers. Price is $430, so minus 20% from Jenny makes it $344. The cycle shack website also shows them. I like that they run straight back without the "crook" on the right side. They call them Dresser Duallies. Look good to me!

They've been making them for a few years. Beware, you do not get heatshields with them. You just get 1 3/4 head pipes. Jireh has them for about 250 bucks.

The photos show heat shields on these pipes, and I sent an email to Cycle Shack. See below:

Got questions about your PHD-120 Dresser Dually header pipes.


Do they come with full length heat shields? Yes

What holds the shields on the pipes? hose clamp

Got any performance data? No

Can I remove the left hand side cover on my bike with the pipes installed? Perhaps, we haven't tried.

What makes your header pipes better than Vance & Hines, Samson, or Rinehart header pipes?

Our pipes are less expensive, they dont't brake and they accept direct replacement for factory mufflers.

I stand corrected.........I went back and looked at my catalogs. I was thinking about the Paughco Independent Duals. They come without shields. You can buy them as an option. I have a buddy that just put a set, minus the shields, on an Ultra. They looked pretty good and only blued a little at the heads. They are 255 bucks at Jireh's. The Paughco site show's 'em fitting EVO's only, but they will fit TC's. I have a buddy that just put a set on an Ultra.

One of the bad things I see already is the bracket support location for the rear header pipe. That location has been a problem for Rinehart with cracking and braking for some time. So Rinehart eliminated that mount location and moved it further down the pipe and now has a new style rear header pipe and a bracket which mounts to the outer primary supporting the rear pipe.

I would advise anyone that's interested in the CS pipe to call them and ask them if the rear pipe support is welded or mounted with a clamp like the VH true duals. If it's welded, it may be prone to cracking or braking.
