    Just going through stuff in the shed.

    and thought i would compare Genuine Crf50 fender , with a china fender.

    Both are/where in almost perfect condition.

    The difference in quality and colour just by eye and feel is huge , but not so much in the photo's i could get.

    Well i started bending them everywhere i could to see if they would snap , both passed that test . could bend them all the way back to themselves without snapping.

    The china ones got crazy crease marks /white marks where i bent them , and started to whiten way before i bent it on to itself ...

    The Honda one bent straight back and barely left a mark.

    Just thought this mite come in handy.. for people that think its a ripoff for decent plastics , you get what you pay for.


    There is a heep more flaws in china pastics to , the fading is terrible etc and the colour put against the crf50 fender looks shocking.

    Personally i wouldn't pay that price tag for oem honda plastics ... but there has been a few sets of used ones around for around the $80-100 mark in aus , with the oem graphics . which is what i got mine for ages ago.

    U.S Ebay should have a fair bit of gen plastics for decent price.

    Definatley and interesting thread. I think at $40 for China one's, most people would just buy them and swap them out every year or 2.

    Well depends if your just gonna get ebay graphics with them for the extra $20 lol... but if your gonna spend a decent amount on graphics i would want to stick them to something decent .

    Not that they wont last as long , they will just look 10x better from the get go
