Thumbs up Chinese aftermarket fairings Sp1

I bought these fairings on ebay for 465.00 shipped. took 2 weeks and three days to get. Fitment was almost perfect and the paint is amazing. I went into this expecting the worst and got a great outcome. I have not had any melting issues at all and have ridden the bike very hard. Color is a match and all of the graphics lines match to the tank.
Now my buddy got his from a different seller and they were complete crap. I guess its hit or miss with Ebay. The seller was MCparts Greenseller777.
I was wondering what other Rc owners results were. Good or Bad?

By the way the tank I got from RC-Devil. Great guy and a pleasure to do business with.

Its a 2001. When I bought it it was all black. I had to put it back to my favorite colors.

The RC51 -good fit and quality, cost me about $450 to my door in 5 weeks, fit at the bottom of the fairing poor but fixed with the use of a Dremel.
I contacted seller in China and asked to buy just the graphics package a few months later, took 2 weeks to arrive and was about $60



Ducati 996 -v-good fit and quality cost me about $500 to my door in three weeks, as I asked for minor changes to the graphics.


2004 SP2 NHR #000040
My biggest fear is that when I die
my wife sells my bike for what
I told her it cost.

Top Tip, if your looking for mesh on any intake areas on the Chinese fairings, in black or silver, get your ass down to Wal-Mart and buy yourself a desk tidy (the one to hold letters) and with a few templates and some sheet metal shears and a hot glue gun, job done!!!!
I've done it twice on both my bikes, on the Ducati 996 I saved myself a fortune

Nice looking color scheme...looks like you're ready for another round of BOTM?

2001 SP1 (sold)
2004 SP2 (properly stored)
2012 Ruckus (stolen)
2015 Grom (under construction)

Weyrauch pronounced (Y Rock)...Rock for short.

Semper Fidelis
