Hi Guys.
Has anyone fitted a Dennis Corso set of headers to a 41-48 Model U, If so what is the fit like, I have heard so many stories of aftermarket headers not fitting properly so was looking to someone who has used these.
Thanks Martin

I don't have those pipes exactly, but word on the street is that Corso makes the best repop pipes available. By 'best', meaning the least amount of beating-to-fit.
A lot of places are selling the Corso pipes, even Dennis Corso!

Also JWBoon.com has pipes. I have used them with success.

I'm running a Dennis Corso "Rocket Fin" muffler on my panhead - got it from Tom's NOS Parts.

I'm using a Dennis Corso muffler on my 58 FLH, fits good, looks good, sounds good. As far as the headers go, I can't talk from experience, one of mine was OEM NOS and the other was some random eBay buy. Not really sure what an oem one is supposed to look like but the shipping was quick and he even honored the mainland shipping quote to Hawaii. Cool dude.

Hi Guys.
Just a quick update, ordered a set of headers made by Dennis Corso from J.W. Boon in Holland and they seem to be of good quality and a reasonable fit, after some cursing and jiggling with the rear cylinder pipe.
