Unhappy Reliable Source for Motorcycle Fairing Kit?

Okay so I wrecked my bike on the 20th just left side cosmetic damage for the most part. I'm a new rider so I'm not really sure where to get parts from. I ordered the left fairing from stubbs cycles for about $440 after tax and I still need to get the tail fairing which is looking to be $377 before tax

A fellow rider told me about this website called dhgate.com and after looking up some information I found the entire fairing kit for $420 with free shipping. That sound ridiculously cheap but I want to know what y'all think. Is this a reliable place to buy the fairing kit for my bike. Has anyone gotten anything from here? I have a 2008 Suzuki GSX650F and I will also put a link to the fairing kit I'm thinking of buying. If it isn't a reliable place to go, is there any place y'all would recommend to get the fairing kit for cheap?

Here is the link to what I am thinking of getting:

Thanks in advance,

I am very very very pleased with my recent purchase from auctmarts:

dsc0605copysmall

I think I paid just under $600 shipped and it included every single piece of plastic on the bike including a new tinted windscreen to boot! Only downside is I had to wait about 6 weeks as they are made as ordered

I get most of the stock parts for my bikes from www.bikebandit.com. Parts are usually cheaper than from a dealer (not always so check prices every time). Ground shipping is only about $10 and if you have an AMA membership there's an extra 10% discount on almost anything.

Yeah I was looking on that website too and they were in the $300 range each. I'm guessing you bought something from there? Was it good quality?

They're the same parts you get from the dealer. Not aftermarket copies. The colors will match your existing plastics. They get them from the manufacturer because for a lot of parts they have to source them from Honda/Suzuki/Yamaha/etc and then ship them out. So ground shipping and all normally takes about 4-7 business days to get them.

based on your experience level, dont even bother to fix it. just ride it, then when you get better fix it, or sell and get something different. scratches give it character anyhow.

I don't mind scratches but when you have it cracked down so much that there are parts hanging.... Don't really care for that too much lol

after my crash, i super glue and double side tape the fairing together, if it stays on, it is good enough for me.

Zip-ties and stickers. It turns it into a real conversation piece.

Use Zip tie stitches. because statistics show it will probably happen again within the next 6 months.

If you need help i can help you do it all. I've done zip tie stitches on MANY bikes and they are very very durable and can be almost invisible. I've got all the tools, just let me know if you need a hand.

Only cost about $4

MSG me for more info.

+1 for zip ties. Like i told you last week. A few scratches aren't that big of a deal. Your a new rider and chances are your probably going to go down again. I'd keep my money in the bank but that's just my .02

Im zip tied like a !! I have only half of my front stay which holds the front upper fairing. I have that whole right side zip tied down even the windscreen.

I also zip tied ivans and its sturdier than ever.

Thanks for all the feedback again guys! I ended up keeping the fairing from stubbs and bought the back fairing from bike bandit........maybe some frame sliders would be a good investment???? What do y'all think?
