I have the factory vented lowers and I love them.
Perfect fit and the color was spot on.

He didn't mean the factory lowers.... he meant the "Fairing Factory" lowers. It's a brand name made in China. And they only come in black. I have not read anything bad about them. They are EXACT copies of the HD lowers, and even have the stamp marks on the inside.

If I had a black bike, I would try them. But if you don't have a black bike, the cost to have them painted would put the price in line with the real deal

I think that Lets-Go is referring to aftermarket lowers made by a company called "The Fairing Factory".

I'm on the look for some lowers as well so I'm interested. I found some posts from 2010 on HDforums that suggest they were selling for around 300 shipped, but it looks like they have raised their prices to 500 shipped.

I could only find them for sale on Ebay. For 300 I would buy them... for 500 I'll pay a few bucks more and get the HD lowers. @ 30 bucks more through PCpain.

+ 1 on getting them from PC PaiN, getting the HD fairing lowers will get you a matching paint job that is factory quality and you know they will fit perfectly.

Ordered a set yesterday direct from Andy at the Fairing Factory. If you go to their website you can get his email from the contact page.

Paid 450 shipped for vented w/ 6.5" speaker pods, vivid black.

Roughly 150 cheaper than true HD ones.
