whats the best aftermarket fairing?

All right so I scratched one of my fairings for my bike, and I went online to see how much an oem fairing would cost and I don't want to spend that much money to fix it. I've been thinking of buying an aftermarket fairing kit just in case something goes wrong, and I need a quick fix. I've had a bike before with aftermarkets and they sucked. they were plastic and broke and chipped very easily. Any of you know what the best deal is (in price and quality) if I want to get some aftermarket fairings?

it all depends if you care about resale.

Stick with OEM for the street IMO.

yeah, I'll probably stick with OEM but just in case I'll buy some aftermarkets. Saw some cool color schemes on ebay that I thought about but don't want to spend $700 for fairings that won't fit or crack easy. Anyone bought fairings off of ebay? How are/were they?

250 isn't bad, you spend more than that on cheap offbrand plastics and paint.

You can't repair the rear or the front? How about some pics of the damaged fairings?

What is the damage like? A plastic welder may fix your issues.

I was hoping that was the case but I don't have the part that broke off the front fairing. The only thing that happened was the front fairing piece on the top left broke off which also broke my windscreen and my left mirror. i replaced the mirror and the windscreen with OEM but the front fairing remains broken as well as the road rash on my tail.
