Fairings

http://www.suretribe.com/suzuki-gixx...-orange-black/

These guys say %100 fitment and the price is pretty good... what do you guys think on this? "Pre-drilled for precision fitment and can be installed without any modification" is what they are claiming

I dont care if they say perfect fitment, your probably going to end up making modifications to make them fit right

I agree that you'll need to do at least some work to make them fit. They guarantee ABS plastic and injection molding, so shouldn't be too bad.

Personally, I wouldn't trust a site without reviews (at least on some forums) or pictures of customers' installations. Those stock photos can be very misleading.

Seems legitimate. When I bought my replacement feering kit, it came from China. It took 2 months to get. I had to use differant snaps to make them work. I paid around $500. Maby this site is better. Let me know how it works out for you.

+1!!!

i work with this stuff all the time. from all different types of sellers on ebay and other websites. their ABS injected molded plastic is no where near OEM quality.

i always suggest to stay away from these unless it's your last resort.

This is the other website I was looking at... only about 20$ more than the other site... painted to order, made in Cali and shipped in 2 weeks... even have caller ID and called me back WITHOUT me leaving a msg for them too... very personal and polite on the phone... even said they could add or remove graphics as needed like on the Corona fairings without the Corona crown or text just the design, could add other decals like Alstare, Motul or Pirelli wherever wanted
