A few words about aftermarket body kits.
I have purchased a few of these over the years.
From the early fiberglass kits to the later abs kits, a few things seem to hold true.
1-You ultimately get what you pay for, usually a bit less.
2-Fit & finish will never meet o.e.m. standards.
3-Color matching is a futile effort.
4-Paint, because of the lead content, often looks Better than o.e.m. paintwork (Crazy...I know!)
5-Runs and drip marks can be common so don't expect perfection and you won't be disappointed.
1. You are right!
2. It is hard to say we are 100% meets the o.e.m standards but i am sure we have brilliant molding set for different bikes.
They aren't cheap, saying over a million dollar cost for each set. The result of injection molding is fine i can tell.
3. Hmmm, this is the most trouble part since everyone sees color differently. Moreover, if you use different monitors to view the fairing,
the colors would also fade out a bit. ( this is not apply on this thread's fairing
Remember the black and blue or white and gold dress meme?
4. I cannot define this is a pros or a cons
5. Is it a common? This is not a usual case for our customers. I think if you are the customer, you have the right to complain for things you dislike about. However, TBH we don't have a good profit for each set of fairing set we sold. The reason first is the competition out there is crazy, some seller just want the reputation and market share so they tend to sell things so cheap or even pay for each set they sold. You can see how heartless they tread the fairing. Hope you guys understand
