I purchased these for my 08 wing and they are as advertised...well built and metal. I did follow the instructions for installing and had problems with the left side adhering. I purchased additional double back tape and it worked. Seems to be holding on well and looks great.
These are a little pricey but I didn't mind paying a little more for these. These are well made and nicely finished. Make sure you clean everything well before installing. Dry fit them before sticking them to the OEM plastic just so you are sure how to fit them properly. I like these and it changes to look of my bike. I do recommend these because of their clean lines and look.
I wasn't sure if I'd like these, but I got a set and just installed them today. Like most previous reviews, I noticed that they don't cover all the black plastic cover - it's mostly apparent around the opening, but that doesn't matter. They are very nice in appearance.
I'm a little concerned about the two sided tape. It was pretty thin and it sounded like much of it was pulling away when I installed them. I ended up removing the side covers from the bike, and hitting the black plastic again with more alcohol (50 percent rubbing), and did a re-stick. They seemed to be holding better. The instructions say to wait 24 hours for maximum cure time for the adhesive. So we will reserve judgment on the installation.
At this point I'm cautiously optimistic. If the 2 sided tape seems loose, I will remove it and use some thicker stuff. I can't fault the appearance though, it is top notch! I'd probably buy these again. Look for them on sale.
3 stars for price and possible installation issues but 5 stars for appearance - split the difference 4 stars.
And we can't wait to show you how it's done!
