Trim between inner and outer

We seem to be having a large number of people doing their inner fairings lately. I know this has been discussed numerous times on another thread, but just wondering out of all the ones being replace lately, who is using the stock harley trim pieces, and who is going with an aftermarket trim?
There seems to be pros and cons for both, and I still haven't decided which way I want to go.
Thought I'd see what direction everyone is taking lately...

Having used all three (X-Trim, factory & generic auto trim from the parts store) X-Trim is the definite winner! Works really well around the windshield too!

And an added bonus: The maker of X-Trim, Tyson is a RG rider

I used this stuff I got at Autozone, It wasn't very difficult to do and seem to be just a little bit longer/wider so hopefully it will stay on better. It was tight putting it on which is good. It really doesn't look too different than stock. I'll see if I still have some stock shit lying around in my garage and see if I can't get a comparison pic.

Coulndt find it on Autozone's site, same stuff at Kmart.

Lol, I can't think of a single "pro" for the stock HD trim

I use an automotive trim that I get by the roll at my auto body supply jobber.

Thanks, I was trying to be politically correct and not bash the HD stuff. BTW, just checked out your FB page... man I wish I lived closer to you, AWESOME work, man...

I use, and have used for over 2 years, the door edge guard from Autozone. It's already glued. You just clean the edge of the inner with an alcohol pad and press it on the edge and you're good to go. It doesn't come loose in the rain or sun. As noted before, I can't think of one good reason to use the H-D stuff.

@4 bucks at autozone, I'm sure x-trim is better but for 4 bucks you can't beat it
