Ebay plastics

I was thinking of buying a complete plastic fairing set off of Ebay for $239 the seller is Selina-moto. for that price I am a little sceptical of the quality. does any have experience or opinions on these Ebay sets?

I purchased the Castrol skin fairing from Selina-moto. I wanted the ones with the silver wing set and got the black ones.

To be honest, I could live with it, but it wasn't what I ordered. They did make amends. I'm getting around to installing them. Not perfect, but better than cracked fairings.

If you are really going to be picky about the plastics, you might be happier to invest the money fiberglass fairings and have both the tank and body painted by MAACO or something.

...Most likely you will need to solve the tail light situation; the stock unit will not fit inside like some undertails. I used Hotbodies elements; there are a few websites that show how to build far better units for cheaper.

Thanks for the info I'm not sure what I want to do about my cracks and scratches. The previous owner of my bike gave me the old line (I let my cousin ride it and he wrecked it) I am having visions in my head of the bike painted a custom color with some of the factory stickers over top.

here is my real 2 cents worth. buy a fiberglass body kit OEM (roughly 350 for entire kit). Then go to http://www.skinzwraps.com/motocycle-graphics-wrap.html or similar site, they will make custom wrap and they will even install the wrap. So for much less than a standard paint job you can have brand new fairings with WHATEVER design you want on them!

http://bikeskinz.com/designtypes.htm I actually got a quote from these guys for my RC51, I am just waiting for a few finishing touches on my body work then I will be moving towards getting a wrap made.

great thing about bike skins is they can custom make ANYTHING! So are you going with a solo tail or dual up? If you go solo I would like to recommend the cyclistic tail, you can get it from scottsms.com for 185, and on ebay there is a guy selling both left and right lowers for 60 per side and he will combine shipping, and if you ask really nicely I know someone who is making OEM replacement uppers with endurance style single and double round headlights in fiberglass or carbon fiber for a good price.

A friend of mine did an R1 with the Rozzi edition and it worked out fine and I just finished my RC51 with the Nickey Hayden edition and other than drilling out a few holes it was not bad, there are some flaws in the plastics and the rear cowl cover sucks but other than that it was worth the money, I went with Motorcycle-fairings.com but I don't recommend them since i paid $750 for the same thing from ebay for $500. the hardest part is the upper fairing.
