Aftermarket fairings vs painted OEM fairings

Hey everyone, something that I've been debating lately is having a colour change on my bike but I've had a little trouble deciding whether to purchase some aftermarket fairings or just have my standard OEM fairings painted.

Does any member have good experiences with aftermarket fairings or do the negatives outweigh the positives?

Any help will be greatly appreciated!

Aftermarkets are OK. I have a set on now. Mine are ABS plastic and came painted. Fit is 8/10 and paint id rate the same (8/10). Paid $675. OEMs fit perfectly and have great paint... If you buy used you will probably pay $500-$700. If you buy them from a dealer... Well... Dont do that lol

Thats my experience. Id probably go used OEM if I change the color again.

OEM fit perfectly. I picked up a spare OEM set for free off a mate, and repainted them myself. Coat about $200 in materials. ^_^

OEM will fit perfect, aftermarket ones sometimes (read usually) have issues with fitting.

Oem

There's a reason the OEM parts are pricier.
Quality. And resale value if you ever intend to sell it.
But that's my opinion. The touch 4 sets seem nicer than most aftermarket ones and fitment is almost perfect
