They are here!

Everything looks great. Nice packaging. I was sent a free tinted windshield and a (small) amount of heat shield. However, they advertise and had told me through email I was also getting a solo seat cowl, which I did not receive yet.

Paint quality looks great and plastic quality feels just as thick as the originals from what I can tell!

I completely forgot about this thread. Oops.


Anyway, final product. Fitment was good. Only had to drill out the holes where the nose fairing meets the sides to fit wellnuts. In this picture you can tell the paint doesn't 100% match the tank but just looking at it in person it is hard to tell. For the price, I can not complain. (except I was told I would be getting a solo-seat cowl and never did)

Update for anyone thinking about ordering these fairings.

I have had these fairings for about 11k miles now.

They survived a lowside spill at about 30mph with only a 5" scratch on the left fairing. The bike was riding on top of my leg for most of the slide. No cracking.

The nose and front fender have taken several rock chips from extended highway riding, much more than I noticed with original plastics. Maybe thinner paint or maybe just more rocks.

I can take pictures for anyone interested.

My bike is ridden year round in all conditions, is sadly stored outside and is only covered in large snow storms.

Overall I am happy and would purchase again.

Hey thanks for the review as well as the update on their durability. My bike was rear knocked over after a dumbass at work backed into it full speed. I've gotten some steep quotes ranging from 800-1500 JUST for the paint (muffler needs replacement too) I'm thinking of just taking the check from the insurance, buy these, get a nice aftermarket muffler, some projector headlights, and still have some cash left

Hopefully you didn't buy these.

I'll add pictures later, but the paint quality doesn't last. The tail fairing and sides are cracking and peeling badly. I am not sure if it is from sun light or what. My bike sits in the sun/outside for most of the day at work, when I ride.

I would not buy these fairings ever again.
