    Default Buyers Remorse

    Ok, not as if I went out and bought a house or an expensive car that I deeply regret but nevertheless I did get wrapped up in buying a pair of aftermarket lower fairings.
    I knew I was making a bad decision from the get go but being overly influenced by the seller at the quality of these, I took the bait.
    Complete shit in a dozen ways !!!! From quality to fitment !!! My own fault, you get what you pay for and should have known better . As far as returning them, not going to happen. For one I barely touched the snaps were the door goes and well, look at the picture ( first one ). Secondly, wouldn't be worth the return postage to send them back anyway .
    So I went and bought Harley Davidson OEM lowers...... quality but pricey !! ( last three pictures)...I say again, you get what you pay for.
    Any purchase regrets you guys have along the same lines as this ? I can't be the only fool..... right?

    Sucks, but you are right. Sometimes "you get what you pay for" is the right answer. Harley stuff is expensive, but not all of it is over priced.

    That sucks moe. Ya those mutazu lowers were hit or miss. Mine were ok but still not the best quality. My harley ones I have now are much better. Live and learn trying to save a dollar.

    So those were the mutazu lowers that you had a few months ago?? Didn't you sell those on CL or something?

    Slowly but surely you will have an Ultra.

    No not Mutazu but another company just like them, actually may be of lower quality than what Mutazu sells. Those lowers are sitting on my storage rack....going to throw them out next garbage pick up day.
    As far as the SG looking like a Ultra.....I think I'm there...lol

    Almost every time I buy after market M/C parts,I'm sorry, the Factory knows best. On the same topic,I now work part time at a collision shop (boats, RV's and Cars) the Taiwan fenders and quarters are a joke. The American made OEM parts always fit !!

    My body guy HATES aftermarket body panels. He'd rather put on a used part.
