For those that have the OEM seat cowl that sells for about 150 bucks how is it holding up? Does it scratch easy? Thats my only concern about buying one.
That cowl is just black abs plastic and un-painted. Abs plastic is pretty durable and should not scratch unless you take a knife of key to it. But if you paint it you will have to take the same cautions as you would with any other piece.
Wow those prices are cheap, Ive a very small scratch in my left black rear side cowl,Looking at the pic's I've seen, it appears to be cheaply done. I'd be a buyer if it was better quality and offered in gloss black, or for my tri-color in gloss white. Maybe someone in the aftermarket biz will see the opportunity to come up with a quality unit at a similar price point, offer it in matching colors and sell the heck out of them.
$150.00 for the Honda unit? They must have all of $7.89 into the mfg. cost.
I just ordered a new red front fender for my tri-color, to have it repainted Spencer Blue Metallic. You want to know what I paid for that new red fender?... $14.90 from cyclepartsnation.com... It is an OEM Honda part. Go figure... The white side cowls are about $30.00 per side... The upper center cowl, between the headlight and windscreen is about $12.00, painted blue. I'm getting ready to place my order for all the body work to have as spares.
Wow is right, Aufitt! That's what I thought when I saw the prices here... I just placed my order. The left and right rear side cowl's, in Ross White are $8.73 each!! How can a guy not have spares on the shelf at those prices? I ordered all the body panels, except for the three upper cowl pieces (they are cheap as well), the windscreen ($31.82) and some other small parts I like to keep on hand... my total invoice including shipping was $183.09 USD.Wow those prices are cheap, Ive a very small scratch in my left black rear side cowl,
I wanted to get one for if I ever sold the bike.. hows this? - $508AUD! genuine part from a dealer.
And my Sharkskinz race glass is going to be over $1000 by the time they land in Australia ($500US freight)
