I am researching to buy:
Chrome Swingarm Frame Trim
I noticed a big price difference
Show Chrome approx. $110
Kuryakyn approx $65
what's up with that?
I havent physically seen either only online.
can anyone tell me what's the difference in quality? :confused:
Help please!!

IMHO show chrome is better quality, but I gathered that just from reading reviews. good luck on your choice

Kury = cast aluminum JUNK with crappy chrome made by 8 yr olds in some third world country.

Can't speak on behalf of the Show Chrome stuff.

Kury Crap

I myself am not at all impressed by Kury. I have quite a few items from them- before I learned better, but the overall quality stinks. I will give one exception - There LED Turn and Brakes bullets are excellent.

You don't care for Kury stuff, huh?
Where'd ya' get that idea? LOL.

Look, if you want a fur coat, make sure it's not made from rat fur. Kury mass produces parts on a scale no other company can match. Likewise, they cut corners anywhere they can to keep cost low and increase profit. What you end up with is parts that do not fit, and chrome that peels quickly. Sometimes you get what you pay for.

I've got a number of Show Chrome and Kuryakyn accessories, which you can see by clicking on the link in my signature. I've been very pleased with Show Chrome, and mostly pleased with Kuryakyn. Kury's fuel shutoff cover is better IMO than Show Chrome's part. If I had to pick one over the other, I'd say that Show Chrome's accessories are generally better.

Hondaline has some nice accessories, but they are expensive.
:agree::agree:eek:n the Hondaline being nice:agree::agree:

Show Chrome

Without a doubt,,,Show Chrome produces a better fit and chromed product. Kury has gottren so big that they have lost the quality edge they once had. Their big ticket items that everybody seems to purchase like ISO grips and Hypers are dedicated decent quality becuase they probably sell the most. Their corporate strategy is produce more to sell more,,,not always the best policy when the quality suffers.
