Direct from China V Star 650 parts on ebay
I thought I'd share my experiences with direct from China parts on ebay.
I ordered sissy bars for $100 postage paid. This included mounts, a bar, and a pad. The pad was garbage, but I didn't plan on using it anyway. Yahmaha charges something like $325 for their V Star 650 sissy bars. The chrome on the mounts I got is not as good as the actual Yahmaha mounts, but they are fine. I got a tall retro sissy bar that I like way better than anything Yahmaha, or even Highway Hawk and others make for the V Star 650.
My second order was for Kurykan knockoffs. This was for the grips, plus spiked endcaps, plus throttle boss, all for $33 postage paid.
The grips arrived covered in dirt and greasy fingerprints. After washing them I noticed part of the throttle sleeve is cracked right where the pin for the idle cable goes. Next I discovered that the right grip was actually for a 7/8" handlebars. The left grips is for a 1" handlebar.
A friend of mine also ordered Chinese turn signals for his 1979 Kawasaki. They look fine, but they are not bright at all. If the sun is out, you can't even tell one is blinking. He put tin foil behind the lights, but it didn't help much.
So my overall impression of the direct from China parts is that they are piss poor crap.
