I ordered one rear seat cowl not long before from china. It came rapped up correctly. The issue was that it wouldnt lock on the base once i putted it on. I had to unscrew the alluminium base of it and bend it a little in the lock section in order for it to lock when i press it on. I cant attach a picture bc im on the tablet ill make sure sending one to you when i get home.

heard alot about these not fitting correctly and the colour being wrong. problem is no normal manufacturer seems to make them for the older bikes now.

Looks like limited options anywhere else, and the colour maybe a tad off

but no choices

will order one and see what we get for my 2002 bike

I picked one up that was China but was stocked in the US
Not a perfect match but pretty good considering bike is an 09 and I bought the cowl in 17
Fits perfect
Snaps in perfect
Holds fine
Was just abit higher priced than ones directly overseas but it was a good deal

Had a buddy that went that route and echoes the same on here. Mismatched paint. Trouble getting it to fasten securely, and awkward spacing between the cowl and the fairings.

Ebay Chinese, you get what you pay for.
