So far so good. I recently laid the bike down because of a brake pad left on the road. So the fairings are now rashed and broken, time to build. There is a certain look I wanted and this place is the only one that had it listed. I corresponded with Stephen a few times by pm and email through their site. He has been pretty prompt to respond. A few days later I decided to place the order. The website sent me to a third party merchant carrier for payment. I put in my billing information and everything went through but it sent me back to their site. When I was directed my payment didn't show so I re-tried the payment again. This happened two times. I found the link to my order status and it showed three orders, I was a bit alarmed so I emailed Stephen. He responded back rather promptly a d took off the other two orders. I checked my credit card activity and see that I only have one pending payment. So far so good. One thing I did noticed that I was not informed of, is that the merchant carrier charges an extra 3 or so percent so the $660.00 shipped price jumped up to $682.11. No big deal but it would have been nice if they would have been upfront about this. So far I am happy with their service, they have been very prompt about responding. I hope that their product is as good as their service.

Dude follow up on this post with quality of fit and pics if you can! I'm really interested in buying fairings from these guys. Also if the fairings come pre-drilled or at least with drilling locations that should align w/ year. Which kit did you order? OEM or did you go with a different kit?

I figured since I need to replace or repair the fairings why not just replace all of it. I looked into repairing or replacing the factory ones on the bike but parts and labor it was going to cost over a grand. So I took the leap and just ordered a set. I did my research and it seemed like this company was doing an ok job. Other places charged about the same and a few charged more but it looked like everything was still coming from China. I wouldn't mind paying a bit more if the fairings were same thickness and quality as OEM but that would mean buying OEM fairings and finding a painter that could paint the design that I wanted. This would cost the same as repainting a car so for cost effectiveness I decided to replace all the fairings with a Chinese set. I decided to go with the red Konica Minolta race theme. I hope it turns out as good as the pictures I have been looking up.

Nice. I like the light blue Konica. However, I'm probably going to have someone do a custom paint job on mine. Custom fairings are the way to go.

I don't know what this was for as I didn't even use it.

Fitment isn't perfect, but I would expect that from non OEM, looks really good.

Looks great, thanks for the pics. I'm going a similar route soon myself.

So after having this fairing kit on for a few thousand miles and daily riding a little wear and tear is starting to show. For the most part the fairings have held up pretty well. There is an annoying vibration from the area where the seat meets the fuel tank cover and depending on my seat position, my crotch goes to sleep. I've also noticed that the plastic prices behind the forward mid fairing is starting to deform due to the heat produced by the stock headers.

I'm hoping that when I get a full exhaust and wrap or ceramic coat the headers that it will help to keep the replacement ones from doing the same thing.
