Anybody with a good Chinese fairing story?

I recently purchased a set of fairings from hanseller777 on ebay. I was blown away by the quality and fitment of these things. I was wondering if anyone else has had a good result with Chinese fairings from ebay? Most of the stories I have heard are all bad. I've had no problems with melting (heat shielding installed) or cracking, and the paint is amazing. One of my best friends owns a Collision Shop and could not believe the finish of these things.
I'm sure its hit or miss on ebay with these things, but boy did I get lucky.
My only gripe was they did not have the 1000r decals on the rear seat cowl, so I had to order a couple.
I only paid 465.00 express shipped to my door and and thinking of picking up another set just to have on hand.

Looks like they fit quite nice. We're there gaps in any of seems? Was thinking about replacing mine as well. Do you have a link for the eBay ad?

The best one I remember is a former member here bought his '04 replica fairings from "Lee". He used a trailer to haul his bike up for the MotoGP in Indy.

This member decided to ride his newly skinned RC to the Motorcycles on Meridian. When we were in stop and go traffic, and we all know how the RC's just love that, the fairings started to melt and smoke. They never caught fire but it made a lovely mess in the road.


Just stick with OEM and be done with it, you will be money ahead in the long run.

Tried chinese fairing set for my VFR800.
All in all, not worth the effort.
Hard to find VFR bodywork that isn't beat to hell, so I ponied up the bucks for OEM plastic in red to go with a pristine used red tank.

First and last experiment in buying crap bodywork from a country that prides itself in turning out junk.

Compare this with Tyga carbon front fender and real cowl made in Thailland, where the quality is gorgeous, fits properly, and is cheaper than OEM.

Tyga could make a killing selling replacement ABS bodywork if they kept the same quality level as their carbon

I share the opinion of the last two guys and prefer to purchase OEM (used/new) fairings/plastics whenever possible for fitment purposes, YMMV.


For the thread, here's a few related threads (do your research first) about aftermarket fairings and how others hated/liked 'em:

I know this is an old post but if the OP sees this, how have the fairings been since?

The OP burned to death in a fiery pile of chinese plastic goo a few months back as the rumor has it.....can't say he wasn't warned.

From this point on if anyone buys another crappy chinese fairing and boasts how well made they are should get a lifetime ban from the forum.
