Default Cheap Chinese knockoffs

Looks like they have expanded beyond the cheap plastic hinges. Now making lights that look very much like the kuryakyn saber tooth but way cheaper.

Thanks, bought them, that's probably where they originate anyway.
Let you know what they're like.

You've opened a can of worms but!
An Aussie loose on USA eBay XC parts
Yes , I've bought other stuff too, as well as watching some.
Unsure how high to go on the screen, wanna stop turbulence without it looking dorky.
Keep in mind 2010 screens mount different.

What else? ...not sure what I've bought actually bit of a feeding frenzy going on!
Bib for back of tank which is already showing 9 years of minor scuffs
Gotta price the Lloydz filter direct before plunging on one there.
Shoulda got the Tri-oval deal when it was on!
Anyone out there bought an extra set like I advised you to do? Sell em to me?
Probly just but mine out.
This has turned into War and Peace, better copy n paste it over into my thread!

I think @Andre orders through Alibaba a lot. Maybe he will drop in and say.

I've got a set of new, never used, Black Tri-Ovals with chrome tips I can sell you at my cost ($250 USD) plus whatever shipping is to your neck of the woods. Comes with an air filter and stage one tune card which I would not recommend but it's all brand new.

The reason I have them is because I wanted black tips on my chrome Tri-Ovals. I probably should have just put out the word on the forums to swap someone but I did it this way thinking I could get my money back one day.

Leaders has the same pipes with black tips for the same price but with free shipping in the US. Not sure if they ship to AU or not.

Leaders sells through their eBay store that's where I bought my tri ovals. I don't mind the black. I will someday get the header shields done in black.

Motorbikerx post when you get those lights I'm curious how well they do. They look identical to my kuryakyn set minus the tape required to attach them. Doesn't look like they make them in black (yet) or I would buy a set.

The problem with this is it gives kuryakyn a reason to discontinue another part. Sucks for those that want them.

Ha ha ha ha, you call it cheap knockoffs, you should listen into cooperate design meetings ....

Do you really think that victory did not order EVERYTHING from china

Kuryagyn same ....

There are 2 doors , one door goes to the over priced OEM sellers, and one door goes straight to the website sellers ....

As a sample ... Engine covers from victory ... Flimzy aluminium crap ... Heyyyy look they "copy" this in china ..... Ha ha ha ... No mate, thats were victory orderes that from in the first place ...

I know my XCT wheels were made in china. "Made in China" is molded into the rims on the inside. Can't see it when the tire is mounted...
