I ordered the VP's and didn't like them and I am in the process of installing the Kury. I took one out of the package today and it looks like it will work great. I believe thay are a lot better than the VP's. I will let you know what I think of them when I get them installed, possibly tomorrow.
I have the Kuryakyan and they work and look great no problems with the panels but you have to chase the threads of the chrome screws that come with it. or they will go half way in and jam. or use originals.... anyway the side panels are very good...... Lee in az.
I had the V&P frame covers and replaced them with the KuryAkyn ones. I had NO trouble pulling the V&P ones off. If you do experinece some trouble pulling them off, try using a hair dryer to warm them up and they should come right off.
