Actually sometimes an aftermarket part is better than some of the OEM stuff. That is if it is made here and not some china knockoff. Back before china took over the world there were smaller companies that could supply just about any part you could think of and be as good if not better that OEM. Just because a part is OEM doesn't mean much when it comes to materials and workmenship. Now day though you can hardly find a aftermarket part that isn't made in china. 

Years ago when I was a boat dealer I used mostly aftermarket parts in our shop not because they were cheaper but because they were better, especially OMC parts. Sadly because of everyones lust for the cheapest parts they can find, Me included😯 I hate to say a lot of the older aftermarket companies are now gone because they just could not build stuff as cheaply as the crap that comes from china.  I'm sure there are some of those old companies that have managed to survive and you can find them you just have to look for them. I've been out of it for a long time now and find myself in the same place as you are and the search goes on.

Hello. I added the center console. Very easy to install. Does anyone have it and do you like it?

I ended up going with a Niche flywheel for my Eiger, i have used Niche aftermarket parts in the past and they have been good. Installed it and started right up, certainly ran better than the OEM one with the magnets moving all around.

I have been using a lot of aaftermarket parts also and i havent haad a problem with any so far, i do try to stay with OEM carbs if possible the aftermarket ones work OK but i think you get a little better performance from OEM. but brake parts suspension partts and eleectrical parts all seem to be good.
