First low side on my ninja 250 :(

So as I was on my way to a friends house last night i got to the street i needed to turn into but i did not see a patch of mud causing me to low side whenever I hit it. Thankfully i had a leather jacket on and some compression pants underneath my jeans saving me from any nasty cuts, only bruises here. Nasty scratches on my left side of the main fairing left signal is gone but i can put it back together. I was recommended to get the carbs cleaned and replace the spark plugs seeing that it wouldn't turn on since they got flooded. I was out there from 1020 (when it happened) to 12 am fixing what i could. I got the shift pedal facing the appropriate direction with the help of the tool kit, then two of my bros came because we thought we were going to put it in the truck, alas no proper tools. so we just waited until the bike would turn on. Pulling the choke all the way back and starting it giving it a bit of gas did the job. Let the gas burn from the carbs and i was off. Not gonna lie it was a nice ride back home on 59 south lol
Any suggestions on any moto shops that could help me out? i know the carbs and spark plugs and signal i can do myself but the fairings i know are expensive 2012 Kawasaki Ninja 250 Black SE
Thanks guys and gals!

There's a sponsor that sells fairings. Might want to give them a try. Just now that there will be some fitment issues and gaps.

...or if you are still new, just wait. It may happen again or you may sell the bike. It all depends on how much the money is worth to YOU, but sometimes a few scratches won't bring the value down much.

Some guys don't care about scratches, some can't stand to have any.

As for riding it...
Fix the wiring from the turn signal (so it doesn't ground out somewhere and pop fuses).
Have Motorcycles Unlimited or a similar shop look it over incase you missed something though.

I wouldn't fix it... unless there was something that was causing it to run poorly. Fix the essentials... cosmetic damage is kinda... eh...for a new person

HOP for the repair work.

No need for new spark plugs or carb cleaning. If it got really flooded I'd change the oil since lots of fuel in the chamber will leak down into the crankcase, but other than that you shouldn't need to do anything else. If it runs fine, ride it!

A little sandpaper to smooth the rough spots and then some stickers work fine. And it makes for a great conversation starter!

I agree. It, obviously, has too much power for you, so it will probably happen again.

I don't think you really need to worry about the fairings unless it's really going to bother you
