Have any of you used/heard of these race fairings?

http://stores.ebay.com/Tromex-Shop They are cheap but i'm just curious if anyone has used them or has heard about the quality/fit of them.

not true. javier has some from a "non" brand manufaturer from ebay and they fit excellent. if anything buy fairings with no pre-drilled holes then you can adjust then and make them fit.

Looks a lot like the A-kit stuff I got off fleabay a while ago. Turned out to be really good stuff. Fit better than any Hotbodies or sharkskins I;ve ever had.I'd say go for it. ALL body work is a pain, but take your time, measure twice, drill once..............

feedback seems ok, a couple of shipping problems, and 1 person saying twice that the fairings were stolen?? and 1 complaint of non-fitting parts.

overall they sound decent, wish they had some for my bike

Over the course of the years I've used Air Tech, AK Composites, Armor Bodies, Beasely, Cheetah, Godfather Racing, GP Composites, Hotbodies, Multi-Tech, Sharkskinz and a few more that I don't remember / off-brand stuff.
Believe me when I tell you; "You get what you pay for."

Fit, finish, crashability, repairibility, etc. are all things to be considered.
Nowadays, hands down the best bodywork I've dealt with is AK Composites, PERIOD.
If they don't make it for your bike they do take requests, and if they get enough of them they will make a set. Other than that your next best is either Hotbodies or Sharkskinz.
My 2 cents.

+1 for AK Composites. Finish was good and pretty much ready to paint out of the box, the fit was great, and priced somewhere between hotbodies and sharkskinz.

I probably just pay the extra and go with the Hotbodies. Not too many people make race skins for the 929.
