I tried one set made in China earlier and they where useless. These look a bit more like the real item (they even highjacked the name).

my final verdict: Get them! they seem as solid as the originals (never had those in my hands but I cant imagine them being much better) and they fit on first try - to 90%.


The only small glitch was that we had to cut one of the two handle bar holders a bit shorter (assuming the handlebar has the same diameter thru out these 2 did not) but that was a 2 minute affair with an angle grinder.


Check the short video showing the right side:

On the left side we ran into some small problem due to the fog light switch which was in the way. We made everything fit but at the cost of unpluging a cable holder from the handle bar that was smack in the position the buster clamp needed to be. Not a big deal, just add a cable tie and problem solved.
Few things where left over, I think they are for generic use on other bikes.
I think the Busters look marvelous.
