Question Acerbis or UFO???

     

Do any of you that have used either of their plastic have an opinion?

I have heard that the UFO is a lot closer to stock and the fit and finish is better. The price is also higher by about $12 smackers.

What's your take? Should I spend the extra money? My thoughts are yes, but I want your opinions.

Thanks in advance.

UFO has always been good in my experience. The Acerbis seems to have little flaws from time to time.

Wierd I have always been really impressed with Acerbis I have some of their hand guards and the are unbreakable..

I had a surprise the other day, snapped my rear fender on my bike and went to buy a replacement, they had Polisport and UFO rear fenders and both were more expensive than the original..

Is that the rule?? are they any better than the original part?

weird

I have only used UFO,
It seems to show less stress points after a fall (white spots when bent) Light blue in my case.

Acerbis makes all of KTM's factory plastics.

UFO does seem to be a better product, but both seem to rank pretty high to me for their quality.

I have an acerbis rear fender on my bike. fits well, no problems

I have red acerbis handguards as well. Somehow I manage to wreck and beat the poo out of them every time i ride. I just blast them with a torch to get rid of the stress marks.

You cant go wrong with either brand. If it was me, I would go for whatever is cheaper. But then again I'm a cheapskate.

DO NOT BUY THE Acerbis, it sucks, I bought a couple of fenders for my 03 YZ250( the 02-04 YZ125/250 are all the same, so you would think they would get it right) and the holes were WAY to small and they didn't line up very well, I had to drill bigger holes in the fenders so I could get them to bolt-up right (I wasn't happy about taking a drill to my BRAND NEW fenders: ) and I bought the Acerbis because they were more expensive then the One Ind. fenders, and I thought the Acerbis would be better, they weren't, BUT the One Ind. fenders were REALLY nice, I would buy the One Ind. BEFORE I bought Acerbis again

Thanks you guys, and thanks for the link Blue, I hadn't looked at them yet. They are a bit less expensive for the shrouds I'm looking at.

UFO it is. I thought the same thing.
