If you want them new I'd recommend PC Pain (Jon) on the forum. He is the parts manager at horny toad HD in TX. great guy to deal with and he gives a pretty good discount.

I've been looking at those as the price difference between HD and those is huge. Any documentation one way or another here about the quality of them, fitment?

Overtime pays more because of what you're missing, money isn't everything.

I have those exactly not because Im cheap but I wanted to see the quality. Here is what I got for ya,

Goods:
theye are actually well made and sturdy ABS

they come unfinished (but I have a denim so with a little prep and primer they were good to paint with the John Deere paint.

Bads:
cost me about 40$ to buy what I needed to mount it along with the time at lowes and home depot. There is no snaps for the "covers" (didn't affect me I have speakers in there.

I have a 13' custom so I have to modify the front "cap" and swap my fairing stablizers to fit like a Ultra.

There are no instructions, with that said there is only about 6 peices per side, but its still a little tricky.

I think I will like them. If not I will buy the harley ones, but like I said I really wanted to see how they were to give a recomendation.
OH!! and when I bought them and told the seller about the instructions and mounting hardware, her refunded me 20$, Stand up buisness.

bid4ez was the seller, I see he has collected a few negatives, but those look like cheap ass buyers wanting gold at copper prices. I HAVE THEM AND WILL STAND BUY THEM.

Hope it helps ya brother

I shopped around in May and the best price for HD pain match lowers was Manchester HD in New Hampshire. I paid $515 I think delivered in color match Candy Orange. Ask for "the discount" and it's 15% off all parts, clothes etc.
btw: I don't know them,live near them or small talk with them. I just found after awhile searching they have the best prices.

Lowers

My .02, I went the cheap route first and bought the Mutazu lowers from reviews of forum members, $227 to my door, looked good at first but on 2 of the pieces the paint was terrible and one glove box piece mold injection was short shot and could not assemble the vent. Plus when assembled I thought they were flimsy and cheap compared to the OEM which I checked at a dealer. Mutazu would refund shipping on damaged or items sent incorrectly buy NOT DEFECTIVE!!! C'MON MAN!!! In this case you get what you pay for. So I ate the $25 to return them for a refund and they lost a customer for life. So I bought some hardly used HD lowers off Ebay and they are solid, fit and function perfect, big $$$ but I will leave them on because of how well they work and I LIKE they way they look on the bike...JMHO...

After researching everything that I could find, buying them new from a discount dealer made the most sense to me
