Prices look really good, been shopping around myself and if the quality is there I'd go for it. OPP is reliable as well at least for price comparison.

Anyone saying OPP is quality Carbon is not an owner of OPP carbon. Do they have a lot of Carbon goods??? Answer - YES Is it quality?? - Absolutely not.. All of OPP pieces are short on resin. Need pics???

I have heard too many horror stories to ever go with OPP. These Ebay CF parts look nice, but I bet you there will be some fitment issues with them.

If you want beauty and quality go for either Dynomite CF or Magical Racing CF. Just ask rorlow here on the from; he can tell you all about those two companies and their carbon fiber.

A. You can see right through the carbon and in most pieces there are pin holes straight through the pieces
B. The amount of pinholes which OPP claims is 99% pinhole free - I counted over 6,000 pinholes on one piece. Sent the piece back and same issue with the new piece. OPP claimed that the piece was near pinhole free. It looked like swiss cheese.
C. HORRIBLE customer service. These guys don't know their ass from their elbow. They make up claims to sell products.
D. Unreliable, Unrealistic claims about inventory and expecatation of delivery. If you don't have it, say so.
E. Back to Point A. The quality is HORRIBLE... Ebay Carbon is higher quality than these guys. I purchased a ZX10R fender just to compare to my R1 fender from OPP. Absolutely no comparison. The finish on the no name from Ebay was
a. Lighter
b. Show finish quality
c. was ready to paint
d. Cheaper in price
e. reasonable shipping.

The only way I would suggest anyone to purchase parts from OPP is because of fitment and because not many vendors selling carbon body. UNFORTUNATELY.

never had any fitment issues with the pieces I purchased on ebay.. Same pieces that all the other distributors have. Majority the retailers purchase from the same manufacturers and relabel.
