Racing Upper Fairing Stay?

My friend went down on his GSXR 1000 and cracked his fairing stay.. Now my question is do you go with OEM for 90 bucks or invest a little more to get vortex. Which retails for about 130.. Open to other suggestions or if you have one shoot me a pm and ill take it. Thanks guys!

Pros: Racing is lighter.

Cons: Only for the track. No headlight mounts.

okay, CORRECT INFO....

vortex fairing stay, when crashed, can usually be bent back to place.
OEM, will crack, shatter, and cannot be bent back.

if it was me, i'd get the vortex fairing stay over stock if it was just a track bike.
