    Has anyone fitted any of these aftermarket  lower fairing (From US and China) out there, or should I stick to HD ones

    There was some chatter a while ago when someone did fit some.  General rule if they are from China, good luck!  Most ones from the US dealers are pretty good quality.  HD will be the best but you will pay for the privilege!

    The 'Advan' Chinga copies are pretty good. Cheaper than OEM but not by a lot.

    Are these the Advanblack ones from the US. Any Australian distributors?

    Gidday Paul 4565 ... like others are saying you get what you pay for ... but ... some of that China stuff is getting better ... i went with the Advan Black Stretched Bags and Stretched rear guard as well as some liners and the Colour match was spot on .


    I`m a bit fussy and there were what i called swirl marks in the bag surfaces paintwork but had them polished out by professional , and bloody perfect ... and not that it matters but ALL the bags were painted unlike Factory bags where in the back part where you don`t see are not .


    Now i don`t think i got any preferred treatment but someone here said they were only a little bit cheaper ... mine were Bucket loads cheaper than Factory ... at least half the price of Factory and that included shipping as well ... mind you i might have got a jacked up quote from Factory but all i know is they look great and they were heaps Cheaper .


    Will try and post a couple of pics for you to see Colour match ... Bags and lower rear guard are Advan Black ... Bag Lids and side covers and Tank of course are Genuine Factory .

    This is before the stretched rear fender .

    After the fender fitted ... with my bag blades on as well , just under the lids ... those things are amazingly bright .

    Nice ride, looks good in photos. Mine is Vivid Black as far as I know. Think I'll probably give the Advanblack ones a go. Can get from states for around A$500. Been told the HD ones are over $1000
