I bought some many moons ago and they did not fit, there was a thick internal ring stopped them from going on. I could have been sent the wrong ones, not sure, I binned them. If its still around search my posts as i bought and reviewed a few Chinese parts, but basically they were mostly crap. I am happy with the oem style pegs and Radiator, they work and good value. Screens too brittle for me. Indicators crap, mirrors not long enough stem and right side mirror never tilted the right way. The rubber cam gasket cover is a tad harder but i will use it. ohh and the plug caps were not the right resistance.

That's interesting, I've used them on an NC27 & the current NC23 and whilst the fit isn't brilliant, they are better than 30 year old, hard originals.
Just ordered some more & will let you know how I get on with those in the CB-1mk2 thread

Not tried them on a 29 though and the carbs are different to the 23 & 27 which may explain why Davez29 had issues
