2014 Ninja 650 Fairings

Just wondering, if it's cheaper to buy a full set for $250 unpainted or have the fairings that's on the bike redone and painted, Kawa Green, what's your opinion, thanks??

Are the original fairings in good shape?

Not sure, but im guessing the $250 white set arent OEM. They might be decent aftermarket, though, I dont know.

Id get a quote on paint just to be able to make an informed decision, but buying aftermarket fairings that come close to OEM quality is going to be pricey.

Plus, you then still have white fairings that would likely need a coat of paint (and graphics), too.

Id start by getting a quote on painting.

We used to have an amazing painter on the board, but he stopped painting bikes and started painting humans.

There are some pretty good rattle cans on the market nowadays. near paint gun quality, but you'll still need to know the techniques or it'll look like a 5 year old hand painted it.

$250 is a good price for OEM replacements. Are there any additional fees (i.e. shipping, handling, etc.)

That's not too bad. Don't see any cracks, and it just looks like the fin (and edge below the fin) lost some material, and the green got some good scratches.
This looks to be fixable with bondo and sanding. If this is the only bad panel, then just get it fixed and painted (or do it yourself, great way to learn).

You have options:
Repair and paint yourself
Repair and paint by professional
Replace with a new set, and either keep these as spares or sell the OEM fairings to offset some of your cost.

I wouldnt get a whole new set that will still need paint if I was in your shoes. I would get that piece fixed or try it myself, and troll ebay and forums for someone selling just that piece.
