Just thought I would let people know. I have just purchased end cans from Black widow.
  Brilliant!!
 Ordered at 4pm delivered by 3pm next day, look great and fit perfect with no altering. Come with link pipes exhaust paste and clamps and hangers.

Nice one. My bike had the 300mm Black Widow end cans fitted by a previous owner. I'm impressed by them. They look and sound great. Others here have questioned them but not me. Enjoy.

Hello Jez
they look great do they go stright on with out fueling issues or have you had to have it remapped and tested on the dyno
when I put my full arrow system on it was sold as no remapping needed how ever she farted and popped and only stopped it when I put the removable baffels back in which was not what I wanted as with them removed it sounded great   :auto-dirtbike: :auto-dirtbike: :auto-dirtbike:
Safe riding and bring out the sunshine  :sunny:

Watcha.
  No ran fine without baffles just too loud even on the bike. Only a couple of small pops when slowing but not what I call back fires.
 I did only change rear though and not full system as you did.
 However I am going to get a healtec or power commander fitted to smooth the bike out but that was evident before cans fitted and no different now.

Isn't it dangerous to ride without safety stickers? And will it void the insurance?
