About quality and texture: I am happy with the quality of heel plates from G-Craft. Made from aluminium with a polished finish.
About the feeling of use: The polished finish looks great alongside the Honda chrome parts and aftermarket polished parts I have added to the Monkey.
Products to buy together: The machined aluminium rear brake reservoir cap from G-Craft would also be desirable to purchase alongside the heel plates for a high quality look.
Difficulty of installation: The process to install takes about 20 minutes, wipe down the rearsets at the heel area with rubbing alcohol and secure the heel plates with double sided tape. Not difficult to do.
Cost performance and comparison with other products: Good costing as you are getting a product made from a quality aluminium material wth a finish that has to be the most suited to the retro styling of the Monkey as compared to the cheaper silver and black finishes from the Kitaco heel plate set.
About shipping and packaging: Sea freight was my preferred method of shipping due to the lower cost but currently unavailable due to Japan Post. Webike kept me updated on the status of my order up to when it shipped. The parcel arrived within the expected date range and was well packaged with no chance of the part being damaged.
Any concerns, cautions, or advice when purchasing: These heel plate options from both G-Craft and Kitaco are a great and affordable way to dress up your rearsets with worn black paint.
