Aftermarket ABS fairings

Has anyone use and see the quality of the ABS fairings that are on ebay at the moment.

I like to store my OEM plastics so they don't get damage whilst tracking her.

A lad I know bought a set from 'Hong Kong' or 'China' through ebay for his Suzuki 750 Alastre ( the yellow/purple'y one) the fit was nearly ok, the colour match to his tank was absolute crap, and 3 months down the line something is starting to etch through into the metallic yellow.................I guess you get what you pay for.

Be wary, all of these are coming from the far east no matter which country they are advertised from

It looks to be a decent deal as you will be ising them for track plastic. I'd buy an extra set of heat shields for the fairings from another source just to be sure they don't melt up.
Looks like you can get them to paint a custom color too and add numbers under the clear coat.

Can't be too bad of a deal if they give you the whole set of plastics.

If at first you don't succeed, use a hammer instead

The belly pans in 2 halves on the piccies, so that should give you a clue to the quality of fitment!

I can see a lot of filing, drilling, cutting, & swearing trying to fit them. [Possibly not in that order]

A buddy bought some Fireblade fairings. Perfect fit, finish quite good I would say. In fact if you don't know, you don't notice.

They have a set painted like the Veltro which would be kind of cool for track skins, but the shipping to the US and the fact that they only show biposto makes it less appealing.

I would never buy something from Hong Kong on ebay. Sorry. I might as well stick the money into the exhaust pipes and see it burn.

there's a good mob down 'ere in melbourne that makes them from fibreglass. about $1500 au for upper, sides, belly and tail. (they only have a mold for the 1+1 tail though). You'r always going to have fitment issues with aftermarket firings as they need to take a mold from the originals, and they sit slightly different when off the bike. My set needed a cut-out around the kick-stand because it didn't have the correct clearance

For the price the ebay mob is asking, its good value. I can't get anything painted for less than $1000.00 AUD then I still have to get the fibreglass fairing.

As they are only track fairings, I might bite the bullet and get a set.
