Was wanting to see of anyone has ordered any of the fairing kits that are forsale on eBay? The whole kits are running about $570. They claim to be predrilled and made of the ABS plastic, but was wondering if anyone has personally bought and tried them. How do they hold up compared to OEM? How is the paint? Seems a decent deal, compared to having a bike painted allowed again, but I wonder if its one of those things where you get what you pay for?
Thanks guys

Here we go again, lol....

If you search around a lil here, there's a ton of threads about aftermarket plastics, and so many people have had so many diff experiences with them...

I'll post up a link to my thread that has pics with my aftremarket plastic...

Sharkskinz, or cheetah, don't remember which one, has a good set of plastics that are cut for street bikes {they sell race plastic} but they come unpainted, BUT, they're already primed I believe...
If I could do it again, I'd buy the primed plastic from the reputable company, and have them painted, or do it myself...heres a few links that may inspire you...

you'll be alright if you go ebay, but in the end, you get what you pay for most of the time...

i havnt bought them personlly but my buddy did. i helped him install them.. what a nightmare that was. they were missing the tail light tabs. the front fairings didnt match so well either. i have no idea which one he bought. but that turned me off from ever buying them.
your looking at about 5-6 hundred bucks. might as well spend the little extra and go oem, off kawasakipartshouse.com

My experience wasn't to bad other than drilling a few holes out. I'll post some pics later when i get home. its on a first Gen. Looks sexy if anybody still wants to see.
