Anyone have experience with black widow exhaust ?

Hey guys,

Just stumbled apon what I believe to be the cheapest exhaust system for our bikes...

Iím getting a total of £515 with shipping, thatís not bad at all and Iím quite interested... if I can get my money back from Paul that is

I like that black widow has so many slip ons to choice from I like the short small cans, Taylor made slip on would be my first choice

Most are made from stainless. Titanium is lighter and costs a fortune. As far as my research suggests, the black widow are considered a budget option. The fit and finish is below arrow/yoshi/m4. I'm sure they are fine. They do have short secondaries like the stock and when fitted and tuned will still present the mid rpm torque dip. Plenty have fitted them and I'm sure they are perfectly happy with them.

When life throws you curves, lean into them.

i got a set to compare to mine, they do leave the hole in midrange delivery, i modded mine to boost the torque delivery, they then worked well, i did a write up - exhaust systems torque variations-

I just read through that thread. Thanks for the info, it really came up a treat.
If i had a black widow i would consider the mod or even getting one custom fabricated.
If i had never sent money to Paul, I'd definitely do it.

I'd go for the M4 system as it works well straight away without a flash of the ECU. For even better power and torque the system length needs to be longer, hence me fitting a custom link pipe and longer silencer and reflashing again.

4 wheels move the body, but 2 wheels move the soul.
