ladybird vs black dragon

I searched, but never found the answer I was looking for. Are these two pipes built the same, or is one better than the other. Both look good in pictures, but do they perform the same? Seems like the Black Dragons just have more options as far as looks. Any help would be appreciated, deffinately gonna make a new pipe purchase soon.

It would be nice if you could look/hear them side by side. I've never seen either, but keep in mind the Ladybirds don't come with mid pipes.

Looks very nice Simon, two questions:

1) Exactly as pictured in your linked auction, with no emblems or nameplates on them, correct?

2) As pictured, are those in the right place for the stock passenger-peg mounts if I don't opt for the alum. hangers?

Thanks!

yes no emblems but some metal stickers if you would like.yes the system can use the stock rear pegs,but im thinking about some high mount stays
they would look sick with the long moto gp canisters
