    Think their OK mate, I considered buying a set but couldn't find any feedback on Ebay or their own website which had zero reviews.

    I emailed them asking about fitment quality and the like and their comms were excellent, checkout BW Youtube vids for comments, they seem pretty positive across the board.

    I opted for full Ti in the end up..

    Just taken delivery of a MTC can and link pipe for a Kawasaki H2 SXSE and it's top quality. They're UK based and would probably make you a set of down pipes if you ask!

    Can't comment on their quality but I noticed their header doesn't use a crossover pipe on their headers. Where the OEM, Spark.It, Akrapovic and Arrow headers all use a crossover pipe. This helps to send the pressure waves in the right direction at the right time. (If you are geeky, google crossover pipes) In the most basic of terms it helps give better top end power and a broader to torque range lower down the RPM.

    Why Blackwidow do not use one? Probably cost. I'd save your money and go for tried and tested systems.
