Buying Plastic? - September 22, 2009, 08:14 AM

As some of you have hear somebody elses bike took mine out and needless to say I'm off work for a while. (broken collar bone and 3 broken ribs and busted up chest) And bike! I'm thinking of buying some of the aftermarket fairing that comes from Hong Kong, something different from everybody else has. And would like to know if anybody knows if this stuff is any good (pros) and (cons). Good feedback would be appreciated. Here is the kit I'm thinking about buying http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/SUZUK...=p4506.c0.m245 thanks David.http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Suzuk...Q5fAccessories Here is the other kit I'm thinking about.

I have some of that stuff on my 996.. wanted something different. Anyway, Quality is not terrible on it, finish is pretty good, and the plastics all lined up pretty damn good, except for the tail which had no mounting provisions at all.. which could just be a Ducati thing.. All in all, was it worth it? I would say yes..

I have some still sitting in the box, mainly because i would need the tank painted. I've only pulled out one piece to look at it. seems to be good quality. You'll need to get or remove your old heat shield from the old plastics (it's abs plastic so it will melt without) and reuse the mounting hardware also.

The kit comes w/ the heat shield. I'm leaning more towards the second site, being shipping willn't take as long. Thanks for input!

Yeah looks like he already paid for them or he's having them dropped shipped. Mine took forever to get to me. I got them from auctmart1. They painted them when you ordered then. They were just getting started.

Thanks Chad The 2cd site that I added looks like maybe a little better you can at least see the mounting holes in plastic. I'm calling them later to ask info.

The whole kit is the same price as what you would pay for 1 side of OEM. I had seen some that stated holes were not drilled, but these look good!
You probably already did, but the feedback from the 1st one is 100%, but from 5 people and not on bike stuff. The 2nd one has great FB on bike related stuff. Just my . Keep us posted!

sometimes its better if the holes aren't drilled that way you can drill them in the correct spot instead of messing with holes that don't quite line up, the lucky strike ones are 1 billion times better than the orange flames

Thats what I'm thinking but that co. says that he can get the orange flame also. They would just need to paint them.

Go to your bike specific forum and ask about it. Most of these plastics fit perfect and look great, and but for some bike models they are a huge pain to mount and there are some quality issues.
