Acerbis plastic, any good?

Recommended Posts

How is Acerbis plastic as far as quality? I am correct in believing that Acerbis plastic is manufactured differently from factory plastic. At least on my ATV, factory plastic is shiny and smooth (injection molded), while acerbis plastic is rough and has a matte finish (vacuum formed).

I went all Acerbis plastic. The fenders, side panels and scoops have a smooth finish. The tank has a slightly rougher finish. You can't really tell a difference though.

I was hating on Franco Acerbis and his plastic business after putting on the Acerbis Rally handguards. The Black plastic replacement kit I just installed offered redemption. Good stuff. :cry:

That's pretty interesting. I guess it is more economically feasible to injection mold small parts for motorcycles than larger fenders for ATV's, because I can tell you right now the ATV stuff is crap.

I am considering putting an RM front fender on as well.
