Never bought any, but a lot of people who've bought the Chinese stuff says fit and finish is shit.

My friend bought some from ebay, AuctMarts I believe and I think they have a website. I definitely wouldnt buy ANYTHING from anyone who thinks there is an 03 zx10. If they dont know the years, they usually dont know how to make it either. The fairings he got from Auctmarts were pretty good. Obviously had to fiddle with them to get them on, but didnt have to drill any addition holes. Good thing about them is you can get any paint color by asking them, and they dont add extra fees. He paid around $550 shipped which is what they will do if you email them and ask them

"The world is made of two types of people: riders and everyone else. In a country full of lawsuits, threat levels, child proof caps, rules and regulations, owning a motorcycle is one of the last ways to give the middle finger to society's expectation that we constantly be caged and protected. We all want our machines to be a representation of ourselves. Those that ride know being on a motorcycle is not just about getting from point A to B."

I've had my fair share of installing these and some went smooth, others were a major PITA BUT the one thing everyone always forgets about or doesn't think about is having to get the tank painted to match the fairings!!!!!!! the ones i've installed though were good quality parts AND paint work. for the price, i would say it's worth the gamble. best of luck and think about that tank.

And one thing i'd like to mention is that i'm NOT badmouthing these fairings....hell, i'm all about getting the best bang for the buck AND a note to the OP MR. danzx78....if you end up getting the west fairings in the link then you can probably just get either a black or pearl black tank ot have yours painted the solid color instead of having to worry about any graphics or vinyl. i'd like to see them when you're done bro......... the one set that really sticks with me because of the hell we had getting them on was a set of red bull or telefonica fairings for an 02' gixxer 600, tail and nose went on without a hitch but it seriously took us about 3 hours, countless extra holes to be drilled and a buttload of zip ties to get those suckers on. but i've put them on 600/1000rr's, R1's quite a few gixxers, a ZX6 and most went without too much of a headache and cussing involved. hell if it were me, i'd give em a shot. and even if you have to repaint the tank, put that on top of what the fairings ran you and you're probably still under/around half what a set of OEMers would cost ya.
