No cracks and nothing is broken? Repaint bro! Nothing is more expensive than factory plastics. You'd think the material they used comes from the moon or something...

Full set of new factory plastics for my bike (2004 ZX6-RR) run over $2,000 !!!!

It's ABS plastic for Pete's sake!!!

paint is prob cheeper than getting plastics... the damage looks like minor scuffs and scrapes so i dont think buying new fairings is wise. unless you find some kid on ebay selling his cheep cuz he put racing plastics on.. good luck on that

Paint is cheaper, just shop around locally or ask a local independant who does not offer the servoce to recommend someone.

I would repaint it, I paid a guy around $400 to repaint mine and he did all the sanding and plastic welding, Because mine had several cracks. his plastic welder was awesome, You wouldn't have even thought it was wrecked after the work he did. New set of fairings is an easy $2000+
