Well. Since you mention it. I bought a set of Ness FXR side covers some years ago. Had them painted to match the bike........before test fitting them. They had those bolt hole locations molded into them. No need, right? I'll just drill the holes after paint.
Paid for the painting then discovered that the bolt locations were off by as much as 1/2 inch, meaning way off of the thread locations underneath. Couldn't return them because they had been painted. I know that plenty of them are out there in use so I guess I got (un)lucky.
Oh well. Lesson learned. And I've since become a fan of the original side covers, anyway.
