The price isn't too bad.

Chinese plastics are harder and not as pliable as the oem plastics, causing the fairings to crack instead of bend and absorb.

Fiberglass will crack as well.

Also consider paint too; it needs to be applied in layers so it can flex too.

If the price is right for you then its worth it. Just consider the downfalls mentioned above.
