Default Fork covers

Who has these and what do you think? I know a few here have then I'm looking for opinions . I've posted how chipped mine are and now that I don't have to have fork air deflectors I'm considering these but they are big $$

So the quality seems good? That's what I linked in my post but it's also tube covers.

I had to send the first set back because the set screw on the bottom was burred and stuck. Also the top button-head bolts are crap and will strip the hex head with minimal over pressure. That said, they look really nice, have held up well and the fork guards are a whole hell of a lot better than stock.

You know..? its hard to believe, but I've never taken a pic directly of my Kuryakyn lower fork covers.....I'm loosing it LOL
Here's something close

I've thought about adding the tube covers also but since they attach with double sided tape I opted not to.

Default Fork covers

They finish off the front end. The quality was good and the fork guards are way better than stock.

Mine don't use tape. Two screws to the fork guards and one locator bolt to underside of the fork. Have not move any in 16000 KMS.

I think it's the fork tubes that use tape.

The lower fork covers attach with screws, the upper fork covers are taped on.
