Default HOT BODIES Products-poor quality and fit.

I have bought two products from hotbodies and BOTH were poor quality AND had the wrong size holes.There rear tire hugger for the 08 CBR1000 had too small of holes and I had to add 1/4in washers due to the honda bolts having a 1/4in shoulder.The left side didnt have anhy mounting so I had to use a strip of velcro to keep it from bouncing up and down while riding.The tinted windshield had a dull finish and the mountingholes were too small.(I ended up putting my stock windshield back on), I won't be waisting anymore of my money on there products.

Just my 2 cents..I bought both, hugger and underail and no issues here. I installed hugger and yep had to use the velcro but when mounted, it looked pretty good. Had the undertail installed by professional and he had no big complaints. Although I would go with their screens, I'd rather go with Puig or others.

I too have heard that their products can have poor fitments as well.

Had a set of race plastics that I got so frustrated with that I stuck 'em all back in the box and bought Attack bodywork instead.

"Hit & Miss" is a correct statement about Hot Bodies products. I too purchased their windscreen. The holes didn't line up. However, in their defense, the rep I dealt w/ was extremely friendly & more than willing to make it right by overnight shipping a replacement to me. As I live reasonably close to a Cycle Gear & was going on a trip in the upcoming days, I opted to go w/ an available Puig screen...instead of taking another chance that the HB holes might/might not align again & ultimately requiring me to get a dif windscreen anyway.

I know other folks that have purchased the HB screens & they mounted right up w/o problems. Their flush mount front signals are pretty decent as well.

I believe as a company, they are working hard to get it right, at least as far as my experience w/ them goes. However, the inconvenience factor of current mis-fits & having to get replacements definitely is an irritation that they will have to overcome.
