there has been much discussion about the chinese fairings over on the tlplanet, if you're 100% realistic of your expectations,and dont expect them to fit as easily as factory parts then you will be happy with them,if you take the time to make them fit,for an old bike like a tlr they are produced in a diferent way to say a new R1, but if you are realistic you can get them to fit quite well,and for the price they are a good option for anyone on a budget,but be prepared to work at getting ALL the pannels to fit

From the look of Gorfinders lowers I would spend the extra money. Stunning!

Why spend half as much on something not a quarter as good?

And Snake...... those sharkskins look awesome imo , they really suit the TLS . nice work
Agreed. The Sharkskinz are the best for TLS I think, but they cost too much to import and I haven't seen any black lowers for sale... sigh...

I accidentally ordered from Usa (a place in china) they took 5 months to show up. They fit, but not perfect. The belly pan melted where it touches the pipes on the right side. I imagine you could mold them w a heat gun. Or just cut out the part that melts. I'd say have Patience, save up the extra $100 or so and find some good ones. I. Looking for a track style nose so I can cut my own custom headlights Into it. Hope this helps a little. Good luck bud!
