I am one who who would normally pay more money for OEM Stuff, But the OEM price was just out of this world compared to what the other OEM parts cost. Example rear fender Thats normally the biggest part price (besides gas tank) was about 80. The fork guard were like 160. So i though it was worth trying these for less then half of what 1 OEM would cost. I am 110% happy i mad this choice. Great quality can't tell a difference. Trust me BUY THEM!!!! you can't go wrong especially a quarter the price.
