First farkles

Took a risk and ordered the following from China. A radiator guard, fender extender, rear hugger, tank pad protector and a screen air deflector. Total cost was $116. Free shipping as well.

All items arrived in 2 weeks and were well packaged except the radiator guard. That was slightly twisted but I bent it back in to shape with no problem.

Fitted everything today and although no instructions were included (I knew this as it was stated on each product page on the website), everything was easy to install except the rear hugger. You need to pry out a “plug” on the swing arm and then screw in the supplied screw to help secure the hugger. Problem, the plug head came off and now I can’t get the plug out. Ended up using a zip tie around the rear brake line. May only be a temp fix but it’ll work for now.

Anyway, I ordered everything via AliExpress - Online Shopping for Popular Electronics, Fashion, Home & Garden, Toys & Sports, Automobiles and More., and although leary about ordering from China, none of the items were critical components, so I figured why not give it a try. Must say that I was pleased with the entire process, and the quality of the items was good. Best part is I paid way less than if I’d brought from “established” companies.

Next on my list in a Con-stand centerstand and frame sliders or engine bars. These I’ll be buying from “established” companies 😄.

Smart thinking. Most of Made in China are not so bad...that's why DT is jumping about on trade war.

Ive ordered several things from AliExpress and have been more than satisfied with the only exception being a larger, tinted windscreen(a lot of see through distortion) but they refunded me $10 to make it right so for $40 total, cant complain!!
I too purchased the Constand center stand and love it. Instructions were vague but finally figured it out and works great.
Enjoy the new add-ons!
