Mutazu Stretched Bags

Has anyone tried the Mutazu Stretched bags? Saw a set on eBay for $429, new. Wondering if anyone has dealt with them. Fit, ease of installation? Thanks.

Yes I bought a st of the 4+" Mutazu bags off Ebay.....lids fit nicely and the install was just like OEM bags. They were vivid black but have been painted since then. :-)

I also bought a tour pak from them and their customer service was great when it arrived with a cracked light lens.

From what I've read and talking with fellow members, they need alot of paint prep and quality is hit and miss. The extra coin to prep them is better spent on a higher quality bag that needs less prep.

Looked into these but after reading the numerous customer reviews about poor paint quality and bubbling I was torn and went with something else. Great price though.

Thanks all. Looked on the Net and found some unflattering reviews. Looking into Fairing Factory bags now.

Theres good and bad reviews on everything. You can give two different critics the exact same part to a T and one will love it and the other will hate it.

That being said, you get what you pay for doesnt always apply. Even the high dollar bags need lots of prep. Ive got a buddy with sinister bags that costed him >300 bux in prep to get them in primer. Ive heard stories of Top shop even taking a little to be ready as well. Dont always go by what one person says, beelieve none of what you hear and half of what you see.

Most people that receive a great product/service will not feel the need to write a review. On the other hand if you receive a poor product/service you want everyone to know.
