Short answer: you can't. New condition OEM fairings are expensive. If your fairings aren't horrible, then repair and repaint.

The only piece you'll find on the "cheap" is the side fairing. Do a search on youtube for plastic welding, there are plenty of "instructional" videos. Do the welding on the inside (unseen), and FLEXIBLE bumper patch on the visable side. Its kinda like bondo but stays flexible, its intended for use on plastic bumpers, but works great on fairings. I've also used fiberglass repair kits too. They work, but its messy. Good Luck to the both of you

Ok funny that you mention this. I just laid mine down a week ago and looking to replace a few peices. There is a company called D9 here is their site.

I am getting ready to order. Pretty cheap for a whole kit.

The Ebay plastics are $504.00 shipped and the cheapest full set you will find.

There also the same plastics that D9 industries are selling. They come from Hong Kong and quite a few users on this site have them. I would ask them how they like them, then find the best price on ebay.
