View Full Version : Thunderheader exhaust

Looking for a ThunderHeader, black in color for a 2012 Nightster.

Should be Part # 1058B.

Does anyone have a good source for these pipes, at a good price and a reliable seller?

Can't seem to find them for less than $600... There for a buddy, that doesn't have a lot of cash to spare.

Shipping would be to Alberta, Canada... Postal Code T8L 0H2.


Any insight would be appreciated.

Yeah those prices are accurate... Directly from their website:

ThunderHeader Exhaust
2007-12 Sportster Chrome, Part # 1058 $609
2007-12 Sportster Black, Part # 1058B $668

2007-12 Sportster Chrome, Fwd Crtl, Part # 1170 $247
2007-12 Sportster Chrome, Mid Crtl, Part # 1169 $249
2007-12 Sportster Black, Fwd Crtl, Part # 1170B $258
2007-12 Sportster Black, Mid Crtl, Part # 1169B $259

Those prices are for all 3 heatshields... They do list individual part #'s if you wanted to buy them separately, but they dont list the prices.

dont worry about the heat shields. If you dont mind burning your boot every once in a while, you wont need them. they dont do enough on that pipe to worry about spending the extra cash.

If your going to run a Thunderheader don't get the heat shield, just wrap the pipe. The black coat on the pipe turns color quickly. Use to run a Rinehart, but it literally broke in half. Now run a theader, great pipe.

Yeah my buddy is set on the THeader, he's not planning on running heat-shields anyways.
He kind of likes the wrapped look.

The problem is finding one, then a decent price. You have to be a dealer to order from them, I made a few calls but I guess it is a bad time of year to be looking. A lot of places are closed for Christmas holidays.

Don't wrap a t-header. They're so thin that over time it'll fatigue the pipe..usually either at the first bend on the front header or down around the collector. If you wanna run without the shields then consider ceramic coating the pipe. Works wonders, looks 1000x better than wrap and is pretty durable.

I ran a black Thunderheader on a previous bike for 100,000 miles with no wrap and no heat shield. It doesn't need either one. However, if you ride in the rain, that black coating that comes on it doesn't hold up for shit! Just FYI

+1 on the ceramic coating... works better then heat shields. isn't as ugly as wrap, and holds up better then the original finish...GREAT STUFF

plus it is cheaper then buying heat shields
