I mounted a bestem rear hugger on a friends bike I was pleasantly surprised at the quality and fit.
No it wasn't perfect, but the overall quality was very good when you consider most of the components are less than half the cost of the good stuff. It's pretty good value for the money IMHO.
Do expect to do a little fiddling with mounting holes and such to get it to fit.

I don't have Bestem CF parts on my bike, but have seen them on another bike and it looked very good. From what I was told by the guy that owned the bike, the CF they produce is very solid and not "cheap" quick to fade/yellow stuff. No first hand experience myself, so take that with a grain a salt, but thought I'd share that little tidbit anyway.

I had some bestem cf on my kawi for about 2-3 years. Good shine and didn't fade or yellow, but I also kept the bike garaged. It's a single layer of cf, so it won't be much stronger, if any, than the plastic. I also had to drill a mounting hole in the zx-10r heat shield because they forgot one hole. No big issues with their products. I would buy their stuff again.
