I bought a set from hong kong and shipped it to france. Yes shipping is nutty but in the end the total price is ok and quality too.

If these are like the ones I got on eBay, be careful. The right side of my fairing blew off on the freeway last week. I was going 95mph, and it just ripped off. Don't think it was improperly fastened, either. The right side panel took part of the upper with it, and the attachment point at the rear of the panel still has a chunk of plastic hanging off. Didn't just separate at the join.

I'm going with Airtech or Sharkskinz, next time.

Damn nick that sucks and sounds dangerous. i've never heard of anything like this most of the stories I hear about the ebay plastics is usaully good, but maybe because they just put them on and took pics and haven't ridden with them yet.

I really don't know what happened with mine. A friend mounted them, but they looked and felt secure. Really, they looked perfect until they exploded. Never dropped the bike with them on, even stationary.

Thinking of buying another set, actually, and just backing it with a layer of fiberglass before bolting it on. I got the Konica Minolta colors, and I really like the look. Only problem is one of the stickers is for Michelin, and I run Metzelers.

The set you had that blew apart, was it made of pvc or abs. Seems most are going to abs and lowering the price. I am thinking of a telefonica movistar 929

there are several good quality sets out there.. shipping is crazy.. anywhere from 3 to 4 months.. but for the price..? be sure to do some research on the seller.. there are some that are known for screwing over customers..
