What can you expect from the reviews I've seen there's been some issues with some pieces having gaps. But you really have to get right up on it to notice.

Still trying to find the time to finish fitting the bodywork (suspect the top fairing bracket is out of line?) but if you want to view my 3XV chinese bodywork to get an idea before you order yours feel free to pm me. I can't be more than an hour from you if you are Berks. :-\

YanW,
Your '5 foot' fitment description absolutely cracked me up  :)) :)) :))
Am currently going down the 'look OK route while you use the bike and not s**t yourself about damaging original bodywork'.

Incidentally, I ordered my Chinese bodywork kit from NeedforMotos in May 2016 and not sure if they are still trading unless under a different name? My 'tatty' 3xv came with a race style fairing but both these offerings don't seem to have provision for air ducts if wanted. Have attached pics for info as a comparison for the Autoducts product.

Also discovered a number of the fairing brackets, captive rubber nuts and spacers are missing so need to compile a list for the next order once I've worked out whats needed  ::)

Or use the wanted section on here. There's probably quite a few of us with boxes and boxes of bits and bobs hanging around  (-P).

Many Thanks Warwick, will post something up once I know what's needed, the bike came without most of the fairing so not surprised some mounting brackets are missing tbh.  (-P)

ps I have a limited number of spares items collated so far but already provided bits to a couple of forum members in need. :)

Nearly there now. Have discovered a large spring (not the rear brake light switch smaller spring) attached to the r/h front footrest which doesn't attach to anything at present. Should it attach to the something or possibly it has just been left there by the previous owner, can just about make it out from the pics?  :-\
ps the fairing lowers and mirrors are left off at present to avoid damage when it goes for the initial mot  by van.

That'll be the brake lever return spring. Best attach the loose end to the lever before you take it to the MOT man  :o .
