I'd just repair them and keep riding.

Not only does it keep peeps away from you, adds some character(not just another repsol), may deter some thieves.

Keep in mind to look over the A/M fairings closely. They cant imitate the complete OEM design, so usually the stickers or the wave in the oil line is different or non existant.

Well, found out it's going to take 350$ to paint then another 140 just to replace the rep sticker, so I don't know. Im going to wait til after July's track day to put on a new set or even worry about fixing the damage.. If I do decide to go with new plastics I will be parting out the other ones..

You would think it didn't look that bad, half of it was pretty deep. Put 2 small holes in a piece too.
What I was prob going to end up doing. Keeping the repsol name def, but found 2 sets that look pretty siick

Yaa as I've heard, but there's some on eBay that look somewhat decent. Full refund if not perfect fit ect ect.. but I know at times it'll come just a big hassle.
I'm not going to mess with the paint, 2 choices between fixing it and leaving the colors the same or buy all new plastics, but still have the repsol name.

Which sticker you need? This is from Ron Ayers.com

3 parts to make the big "Repsol" on the side come to just under $100
