Erion bodywork from Korea review

I ordered bodywork from an eBay type site called dhgate. $408 for a full set to include chin, "v", cowl, undertail, and windscreen. They paint as requested.

Here is what I sent them.


Here is what I got. Paint looks awesome. A few undrilled holes, no lights in undertail, and seat cowl doesn't mount they way it used to.
















I'll post pics on the bike soon.

What type of plastic did they use?? Fit, tell us of the fit, Man!

Also, use liberal amounts of heat shield tape

OK so. Came with heat shielding on it.

Paint 9/10: awesome paint work!
Materials 4/10: plastic is not very flexible
Fit n finish 3/10: not one single hole lined up, every single hole had to be made bigger. Upper cowl was too close and forced the headlights out.









However bike looks good from a few feet away. Got to match the tank next.

I soooo wanted that to work out... I love the Erion bikes.

I give the fit a zero. It don't fit!! You must acquit...

Thinking out loud here... If the nose fits the snorkel then it is correct. The headlights mount to the bodywork, so maybe you need to find a way to space them out from behind to line them up.

Sorry it didn't work better. Bummer!!

Whatever I lack in HP I make up for in just plain ol' crazy!!

Keep us posted on your work. I've been wanting to buy new body work but I'm scared it won't fit.

Ft Stewart. I'm an mp but I just moved over to division HQ. I was running the installation swat team but I came up with a small heart condition so they moved me. I'm now the division motorcycle mentor. Couldn't ask for a better job.
