An idiot needs some help

Ok, so i'm stupid, i let my roommate ride my bike and he dropped it cuz his was staring at the rpm gauge and not the road and almost got ran over so he panicked, slamed on the brakes, fell over and basically bent my clutch lever, scratched my bar end (eh, i dun really care about this one too much), and ruined my left side mid fairing and tail section. It's not too bad, but it's definitely noticeable.

So my question is... i'm looking into getting some race fairings pretty soon to replace my stock ones. I'll be converting it to street since the race fairings are so much cheaper and easier to maintain. I have all the tools to cut out the headlight assembly and taillights. My question however is, how do race fairings usually attach? like will the fairing stay work? do they use the stock screws on some of them? etc.

BTW, bike is 02 R6. I would get the paint scuffed fairings repaired since it's minimal, but i think the racing will look better once i'm done with what i have planned. Plus i'm not too happy about how the paint turned out on them anyways.

Friends don't let friends (or anyone else, for that matter) ride their bikes.

The Race Fairings depending on the company manufacturing should have the same mounting holes if not you may have to drill your own. Regardless the bolts and thread pitch will be the same since the mounting brakets are on the bike itself.

Race fairings will require you to drill them where the stock locations are. Most of the time, you will need to make your own brackets. Good luck making the headlight work on race fairings. I hope the headlight bolts onto the fairing stay. Otherwise, you will have to come up with something else.

If I were you, I would return to the stock fairings, get them fixed by my friend Jason Eubanks (professional bodyman) and painted by his brother Jeremy (professional painter) and get some frame sliders. You can reach them at (713) 822-7028.
