They both have some carbon pieces that I want, but the two pieces are different so I have to get each piece from the two Co.
Need some feedback on both

pro-fiber carbon is awesome ,i have bought a lot of parts from them and its great stuff .it is however one layer carbon and one layer glass backing .But you really cant tell and its super light and reasonably flexible with very little pinholes .

its still a well made ,good fitting composite



the other one i have never heard of .

GOt both, like BCC saidm the profiber is good, made in Slovenia I believe. The Bbesteem parts I have are the inner fairing top covers on my 06-07 they are very nice and shiny parts, no pinholes or flaws in the weave. Thye are fiberblass backed and very stiff, not flexible at all, fit is very good on them, although I had to fab up my own mounting posts to the fairng braceket, but it looks like they were designe to work that way, and work very well. Search though my old posts and you will see what I am talking about on these particular parts.

Well if your into the details, the carbon is not the same and will be different looking to the trained eye (or anal retentive).

I delt with pro-fiber carbon when they started up and have their sides, inners and tail unit on my 636, they look amazing but the fit was not perfect...but bought at a good price.
Bestem well the fender i ordered never made it to the house.
Wish Becker of germany was making parts at a reasonable price...best stuff out there.

Bestem never made it to your house????
what happend?
That's why I ask, because their web page doesn't look all that legit, and didn't give me the confidence because of this reason, maybe it's just me but the pro fiber looked more legit.

Pro fiber is a little cheaper for swing arm covers than OPP; Bestem usa also has the dash panels in cf but their picture for my year is wrong in showing those panels, because I looked real close and what they have in their picture doesn't look like my dash panels.

This sort of thing bothers me, it shows me that they are not precise in matching up the correct part with the right make and year of bike, makes me a bit nervous.

Power bronze also has these dash panels, but the carbon fiber lay looks fake or at least cheaper in some way. Go to power bronze and click on for a zx10r 06' and Dash panels, then put your pointer arrow on the piece, it will give you a closer look at the cf.

Tell me what you think

I bought a Bestem USA Carbon Fiber front fender for my then 2007 ZX10R. I never installed it before I sold the bike. I only bought it because he does business on eBay under the name cruiserbackrest. His warehouse as it turns out was only 2 blocks down the road from my company's corporate HQ's in Tucker Ga. So I went over to look at it before buying it and was stunned at the quality for just $149.00. I bought it on the spot. His warehouse was huge and impressive.

Thats my experience with them.
i just bought an undertail from that ebay user .not carbon tho

It ain't perfect, but I have seen alot worse.
:+1: Have some on my Ducati and it looks good next to the Ducati Performance, ShiftTech and Carbonworld of Germany carbon I also have. Not perfect, but good- especially for the price you pay for it.
