Advanblack lowers

Ok I know this has been posted and debated before, but getting ready to pull the trigger on these. I am anal about my bike , will these be as good as the oem. Don’t want to spend 700.00 if I don’t have to.

A lot of people here have them and are very happy with them.

I went with cheaper XFMT/TCMT cheapies off Amazon. Figure they're going to take a beating down there and they do. Happy as can be with them, in vivid black. Fit was fine. Just had to go to local hardware store to get a bigger bottom clamp for the crash bar. Sent with 1", needed 1 1/4". Buck or two.

I ordered the Advanblack Color Matched (Wicked Red) Lowers & King TP last week. They were running a 10% off special. I truly find it hard to believe that there could be that much of a quality difference between the Advanblack and OEM lowers. I know that the hardware on the Advanblack TP isn't quite the same as HD, but I won't be using it all that much.

Thanks for the reply guys. Aviscom post some pics of your lowers when you get them especially the glove box doors if you ordered them that way. Can’t find any pics of the glove box doors even on thier web site. Curious to see what they look like.

Rock Fish...Within the first 60 seconds of this video is a good depiction of the glove box doors.

got a set of lowers about 3 weeks ago.

install was easy, fit was good but the clearcoat was missing in a few areas.
some people would have sent them back but i'm not too concerned.

they whistle at me over 75 mph but i'm too lazy to figure out why

I had Chinese lowers on my last bike and have a set of OE lowers on my new bike. There is a pretty big difference. The material used for the lower it's self on the knock offs is WAY thinner, the mounting hard wear is cheap, and the glove box doors hard plastic. They are Ok, but they are no where near as good as a set of OE lowers.

Advanblack lowers are pretty good
quality for the price, but I agree the factory OE set definitely seem thicker material but also more in price I haven't priced out a set of HD ones lately , but my advanblack ones were 259.00 can't beat that IMO.

When all else fails, hell there is always beer!
