Aftermarket fairing reviews

I've been looking at aftermarket fairings, to change color and to get rid of small blemished parts on the bike. I've been looking at the following three companies for fairings and would like input on the quality of the fairings and paint.

1. Auctmarts Fairings

2. Summit Fairings

3. Monster Fairings

Monster is by far the most expensive of the three. Any input/reviews on these three would be helpful.

I tried a search first. I have not found a thread that compares the aftermarket companies and the quality of the fairings. Looking at quality, tabs/hardware, paint quality and overall price and customer service.

I'm not sure about the last 2 but I've installed auctmarts fairings on a few bikes now for other people. Fitmet was fine, you might have to clean some holes out or shave a little off tabed areas where there is residual plastic from the molding process. Paint quality varied between them...I've seen some come out perfect, some that were painted well but they messed up the design, some that faded after a few days in the sun, and some that were just jacked upon arival (runs, orange peel, etc). Fairings were packaged very well, however they probably should have waited an extra couple days before boxing it up to let the paint cure a little longer. Most took about a month to arrive, but that's not a bad time frame in the grand scheme of things. And out of all the ones that were order we only had to open a PayPal dispute on one for communication issues, and it did end up getting resolved. At the end of the day you can't really beat what you're getting for the price.

I just ordered 2 sets of fairings from Auctmart, a little over 1 week ago.


We have had excellent communication. After I ordered, they asked detailed questions to gain a clear understanding of what I wanted. After that email, they sent another to make a couple of recommendations on what might look best.

I requested a 2017 SP style fairing, which they didn't have listed on their site. They obliged at no extra cost.

So far, so good. I feel pretty good after chatting with them on facebook messenger, but who really knows... Hopefully I can update you soon.
