Has anyone run these before?
Are they bad quality? Their price point is extremely appealing but I don't want to sacrifice quality too much for cost.

Don't shy away due to price. The stuff fits great and the colors are correct.

Seems to me, that Pumpkin uses them as their OEM supplier, and the graphics are molded right into the plastic. The stuff will last a long time, far more so than any other OEM decals.

Some lower fork guards I bought for my kx125 were Polisport if memory serves. The fit wasn't brilliant.

I bought a Polisport kit for my 95 CR250. It didn't fit very well and the first time I pulled my bike off the stand, it left a white crease on the rear fender. I ended up giving it away.

IMO, UFO and Acerbis is much better quality.

I only use Polisport but can't say that fit has always been perfect. On a RMZ250 and YZ125 I had to force them into place pretty hard and it left stretch marks on the plastic luckily covered by graphics. Good stuff on KTM's though, always a perfect fit.

yep, I tried their fork guards on a Suzuki- they fit was terrible, they looked like they came out of the mold bent and the holes were off and the wrong size- in fact, they actually split when trying to use the correct metal insert on the mounts.

rockymountain replaced them with Acerbis that fit as good as OEM

Seems like Polisport is generally a bad fit for Suzuki. Bought Polisport plastic for my RMZ450, not many of the bolt holes lined up. Had to pick up the drill before I even got the graphics out. Of course the shroud graphics didn't line up either. Racetech plastic is even worse. I go with Acerbis or Ufo from now on.

Ya and when I found out the crappy fit on my RMZ250 i sold i called them and they tried to tell me my bike must have been bent out of shape, so I bought some UFO and they bolted right up.

Bought a full KTM set last year, the colour match was good, the side panels didn't fit well so I had to take a knife to them to get them right, but made it work. Quality was a little poor too, looks like the shrouds were taken out of the moulds too quick, more or less hidden by the graphics though.
It didn't break in crashes so that's a plus, but I'll prob go Acerbis when I next need a set

I bought acerbis for my 2000 kx 250, and the edges were horrible and the radiator shroud holes werent deep enough and made the shroud fasteners stick out a mile.

Polisport....

bought a full kit for my YZ85 project most of the kit went on okay but the rear fender was totally off, didn't even have the holes drilled out. was warped beyond use, bike shop swapped it out for an OEM for nothing for me. Also bought a front fender for my YZF, it was also warped. Got a front fender for a CRF450R, was bright pink, almost nuclear red in colour, not even close to the rest of the plastics.

UFO or Acerbic never had a drama with either.

Alright I will give them a try I think. Can't seem to find the damn air box covers though. Annoying.

"Was" is past tense. As in they were before Polisport.

Only sets I haven't had a single issue with on several bikes is UFO. I got a flo Acerbis full setup for my ktm and the front/rear fender fit great but the airbox and sidepanels fit horrible compared to my oem set. No experience with Polisport aftermarket.

Polisport is what has been coming stock on ktm's for a while now! They fit the best, much better than acerbis!! I'll never buy any other brand now!!

This guy knows what's up. Cycra all the way, there's a reason a lot of the teams use it.
