just curious for any input on injection mold hong kong fairings. do they fit nicely? are they ****? should i look for oem? anything i find being oem is and looks used and abused. i found some really cheap ones on ebay. lets discuss!

Fit for Honda CBR 954 RR 2002 2003 Bodywork Fairing ABS Plastics Set 11 | eBay
I plan to purchase the Repsol plastics for mine from China. My buddy had an R6 that was smashed and the Chinese plastics fit very well. I say good bang for the buck

very cool guys, i feel a lot better about the fact that i made a purchase before i posted this lol. my buddy purchased the repsol edition fairings for his 2003 cbr 600rr and he said they vibrate and feel cheap. also did not perfectly line up with bolts but overall fit and worked out. he did say it is quite the bang for the buck though

Never fitted one to a 900 but fitted one last month on my little nephews CBR125. It fitted pretty well and I was surprised at how thick and well made it felt. I did, however have to slot a couple of the mounting holes so it sat square.

Ive just fitted a Chinese Fairing Kit!
The quality is better than i thought, fitting was ok, a bit fiddly, but doable!

if you are a little clever while installing it comes out really great. I used some rubber hoses I cut down to use as washers where some of the mounts were, to help with spacing, vibration, and lining up. I didn't have any issues that were a big deal at all. My experience was with auctmarts for an '08 gsxr600 back in like 2010

dont wast your time. never know you will get. some are good some are really bad. have had many sets on bikes i have bought. plastic is thin and breaks easily, tabs are glued on and break off with little pressure, holes never line up, fairings panels usually dont line up straight, fairing molds arent the right size too big or small. i have never had a set that fit good. always had to re drill holes and bet brackets to make them work. better off get oem and painting them you will much happier.

I would have to agree with this.
I bought a set for my F3 build (it's a constant work in progress, on the 600's forum).
At first sight, they look very good!
But the edges are not clean and look unfinished, as does the paint that seems to have stopped short of the corners in some places.
Most of the holes, especially around the windscreen WILL need to be drilled out as they are very small. The headlight would not align, so I had to actually "break off" and re-attach a few mounting points.
Could not get the front fairing and the sides to align, but have seemed to have sorted that out now.
The Tank cover snapped, quite literally, in half when I tried putting it on, so just ended up repainting the original tank.

But considering the price you pay for a completely painted "bolt-on" fairing, it does makes sense, rather than spending on 2nd hand, maybe damaged, OEM fairings and then painting them.

Seems to be hit or miss on these. For each one of the positives and negatives can you list the seller of the items/company that made them? I would assume that most of these were purchased from different manufacturers and for different bikes. Would be useful to list manufacturer and bike make/model. Please?

these are hong kong fairings,i just had to drill the mounting holes out to size,and they fitted perfect
Again post manufacturer and bike year/model please!!! I am sure these kits differ by what bike they are on, and what manufacturer made them.. it would be easier to disseminate the crap from the keepers if we had all the information.

Good call.
I bought the 2002 CBR 600F4i fairings in White with the Red wing.
The paint seemed good, bright and glossy but is very rough on the edges. Also as I found very thin and easily scratched.
The fairing plastic was thick enough.
However, the tank cover cracked in half when I attempted to put it on the tank.
All holes needed to be drilled
The headlight mounting holes did not align on one side at all.

They were a good lot to deal with. Very friendly and eager to help.
The ebay seller was hithotwin.

I bought a set for my 04 600rr about 3 years ago. The only problem I had was the gas tank cover didnt fit quite right around the gas cap. But other than that they went together great
