eBay vented lowers - opinions wanted

Does anyone on here have these vented lowers from from ebay?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Black-Harley...0fe946&vxp=mtr

I know "you get what you pay for", but my bike is far from a show piece, and I'm really looking for function over form.
The more info the better, but mostly looking to see if they work like OEM as far as being able to keep them on year round (by opening/closing vents as needed). Also curious if by Vivid Balck they mean that they are just shiny black plastic, or if they are actually painted.

Thanks for any info from folks who have them or know them personally. Not trying to be a jerk, but I'm not looking for 50 comments from people who have never seen them in person saying they are junk because of the price, etc. Thanks!

Hi!

Yes! I have a vented set that I bought off e-bay. They won't fit my Road glide because mine is a 1998. 1998 to 2003 mount different but quality wise they are great. I got mine from "Nicecycle.com" the quality is next to none. I've had them beside the Harley lowers and these are good. (the price is about 1/2 the Harley price).

PieDog another option is Mutazu.
Many members, including myself, have their vented lowers and for the price they are very good.
If you decide to go this route make sure you call and mention that you're a member of Roadglide.org and you will get a 10% discount.
You can search Mutazu and you will come up with the posts made by other Members.
Best of luck!

I also used the Matazu vented lowers, they are nice, for the price you cant go wrong, and the matte finish even matched my denim black close enough. The down side is the hardware that came with them sucks, but a few dollars at the hardware store, and you get a real nice set of lowers, for a fraction of HD. Also the set I got, I had to trim both top caps off, because they hit the fairing/turn signal mount, no big deal, just letting you know.

Thanks for the input. Going to order the Matazu vented ones with the speakers in Vivid Black, which will hopefully match good enough.

Stripclub, looks like you have speakers too. If they were th ones from Matazu, what did you think of the quality?

My buddy has thier stretched bags and thier high quality for the money. The vivid black bags matched his street glide nicely. I wouldn't worry about color matching.

I actually got a great deal on Harley speaker pods for my lowers, and the fit the Matazu lowers perfect. When I ordered my lowers I got the glove box doors with them and then decided to go with speakers later.
