+1 on them, given the price. They might use the same colors but the graphics pattern looks completely different from OEM. Also note that, at least on my '95, the tank graphic has a clear coat over it. I'd think that the quality of the vinyl material is less important then. However there's still the possibility of colors fading over time.

As an aside, I'd been trying to buy a cheap M5 tap since around July of last year. I ordered one on Ebay from a Chinese source and after about 3 months a M3.5 tap was delivered. They said their supplier screwed up, to keep it, and refunded my money. A second was ordered on Ebay from a different Chinese source. It never arrived even though they said that they resent it after I contacted them saying that I hadn't received anything. I gave up on Ebay and ordered a third from AliExpress on March 2. It just arrived, on time and as expected. My general impression is that AliExpress does a better job of keeping their sellers in line. Nine months of aggravation for a $2 tap. Arrgh!

This is what my 1994 model looked like when I bought it in 2008, with 1800 miles on it. [Linked Image from suprememotos.com]
Despite the low mileage, the graphics were pealing, the yellow fork boots were torn, and the green seat had a small hole in it, which soon got much bigger. I replaced the fork boots with black ones, had the seat recovered in black, replaced the tank with a blue Clarke tank, and replaced the side covers with matching blue ones. The only thing that remains is the white frame It now looks like this [Linked Image from live.staticflickr.com]

The above is my opinion. Your mileage may vary.
1994/2001 custom built XT225 with a ton of aftermarket parts.
