chinese fairing kit off ebay...

The set I ordered off ebay came in. They were maybe a little thinner than OEM but barely. They seemed like a little softer plastic though. They looked great, came with instructions. They did not come with bolt set ordered that separate, or the decals. The bolt kit I ordered was great, and it look very nice without decals. It was easy to go on. It took my High school senoir son and 2 of his buddies all day, minus soccer practice, and time for food.. So, about 3.5 to 4 hours to remove the old jacked up ones and put the new ones on. They could not figure out the front fender. One of the boys took it off, and the others didn't watch. so it is fenderless until it goes to the shop to have the fork seals replaced. There were a couple hole that needed to be dremeled out to line up. The tank cover does not fit right around the fuel filler. the hole is a tiny bit to large, but is only visible when looking straight down at it. If anyone knows of a way to fix this, like a larger replacement filler or something. I do have a piece of billet Aluminum and a friend with a machine shop that could make me piece to fill in the gap maybe. other than that it looks as close to stock as $485 will get. it took nearly a month to receive the kit.
here's the link to the sale: Motorcycle Fairing Kit For 97-98 Honda CBR 600 F3 CBR600 1997-1998 ABS Bodywork | eBay
The seller neverland-usa communicated very well. They made sure of the shipping address before shipping. I had it shipped to my place of business since no one would be home to receive it. They communicated when it shipped and estimated shipping time. It cam about 5 days early.
I'll post pic later.

I like how they put in a tank cover as well. Fast shipping considering it's coming from China. Everything I've ordered from out there takes about 3 weeks usually.

If the bike isn't braking properly, you don't start by rebuilding the engine.

I'm impressed. The tank cover is brilliant as it avoids having to paint the tank. Very nice indeed.

Re: chinese fairing kit off ebay...

Yep, the only problem would be matching the color. I'm not sure how good they are these days but I guessing there would be some minor variance between the parts from china, and the local body shop painting the tank. unless it were black, white, or flat black. Not sure but for $485 it is a lot better than the scratched and cracked OEMs.

BTW, I saved the OEMs.. THey are mostly scratched up and some are just cracked. Others are not repairable. If anyone wants them make me an offer. I'd probably take $100 for the lot, and you pay for shipping. The rear left is destroyed, the part around the headlight is tore up but may be repairable. the others have cracks that are probably repairable. the large side pieces have holes for sliders. If someone was going to repair their OEMs they would probably be excellent to replace destroyed pieces.

WOW !! It looks like a new bike. Very impressed (except for the off centre fitment on the fuel tank cutout). Still looks good though - most people won't see it.

That is a lovely colour. It's nice that they put in the tank cover, but over time I think that'd get to me. You'll see it every time you look down. A paint shop should match that colour and spray your old one cheap enough.

Thanks.
I think I'll either get that tank painted, or get my buddy that works at a machine shop to make me a ring out of aluminum to add to the fuel filler to cover that.

Thanks,
Yep, My son says it doesn't bother him, and he is riding it. I will probably either get it painted, or get a ring machined to cover it.

I appreciate your comments. When the fender is on and the forks are done, I'll get out the good camera and and take some pictures of it in the sun. That way all will get a real good look.

The only time I ever see my fuel cap is when I'm actually opening it. The rest of the time it's under my tankbag :-)

For me it wouldn't work. I'll get it fixed this fall when he's gone at college. He'll never notice, but old Pops will have right.

Re: chinese fairing kit off ebay...

BTW, I mentioned this issue to the seller and they are sending me new filler cam that is designed to fix this issue, for free. I will let you all know how it goes.
