I figure you did a Google search for that , and do not know much about manufacturing ? Yes a lot of stuff is made in China , and a lot of quality items and parts of quality items come from China . The big / BIG , difference is who is doing the ordering , since we are talking about Honda , then I will use them as the example - Honda has a " SPECIFCATION " they want there product built to [ same with many other companies ] , what chineeze manufacturing has been doing with a lot of this stuff they make for other companies is copy [ with different / cheaper spec.s ] and then sell at reduced prices . These , buy any measure are not the same units with different labels . Again anyone who makes these kinds of claims , do not have 1st hand / hands on experience , I would venture they just get info off the internet - much like conspiracy fan-boys . TRY TO SWAP ALMOST ANY PART BETWEEN THE HONDA & A COPY ? Let them run side by side . Knowing comes from [ hopefully learned ] direct experience . Believing is the lack of knowing , just repeating what you have read / heard .
