Anybody using the ufo or acerbis aftermarket plastics? How's the quality and the fitment? I want to get new plastics to have when I install my graphic kit but i'm a little hesitant ordering aftermarket stuff...some of the oem stuff is reasonable but the upper intake shrouds are like 55 each and the rear fender is like 40...whats your thoughts?

Never used either on my '06's, and I don't own a '10, but the Acerbis I've used in the past has been good for the most part. Every once in a while there'd be something weird about how they made the parts, and of course you have to transfer any hardware involved, but overall OK.

Haven't used UFO. Polisport is also good though.

I have the acerbis shrouds and side panels, the main difference is that it doesn't have the raised textured material on the black parts. I also have a rear fender which I haven't put on because the piece that is rivited to the stock rear fender doesn't come with the acerbis fender. There are a lot more little parts involved on the 10 plastic than previous models.

Cycra made some that were on Grant Langston's bike at the nationals but when I called they said they were just in the developmental stage and not available to the public.

I noticed that Acerbis sells the shock cover/mud flap separately but how does it attach...rivets just like the factory? seems odd they would make something like that...

I have Acerbis shrouds on my 06, the fit is good and the color is spot on but they don't hold the metal spacers as well as the stockers did.

Yeah, rivets just like the factory. By time you buy that piece plus the rear fender and rivet it it costs the same as oem.

are the oem pieces attatched or separate? also, stock they are riveted together, is it possible to replace rivets with similar size bolts?

I had UFO plastics on my '03 CR250. Fit was fine, but the plastic finish was not quite as good as stock. But considerably cheaper when compared to stock.

I know you're asking specifically about your '10 YZ, but just giving my 2 cents on quality of the UFO plastics...

When you order the oem rear fender the shock guard is already attached, all you have to do is take the mud gaurd off the old one and attach it to the new one. Yes the stock rear fender is rivited to the shock guard and they are pretty small.

I just got my polisport plastic in. It looks good other than the fact it came with blue side panels. Oh well, i just use the stock white ones instead.
