Default in need of a front fairing

hey guys, im new to this motocycle world and any help will be much appreciated. I recentlly bought my first bike a 2008 kawasaki 600 from a buddy of mine. the bike was layed down, the only damages was the front fairing. i havent been able to find a site or anything where i can purchase just that fairing. All i see is the whole 24 piece set that are mostly unfinished. Any help or suggestions on where to look or what to do will be awesome. thanks in advanced fellas.

Is this your first bike? Don't go paying for OEM fairings if that is the issue, just buy the shitty chinese ebay one's because you most likely won't even know the difference.

yea its my first bike, i seen them on ebay an some other sites but i was told not to get them because of the quality. yea its just the front fairng that has a decent crack in it right side fairing has some scratches. i looked on motocyle-fairing looked like they had some decent quality an prices for them. you ever heard or seen that site?

I have, and they are usually american based... but if the tell you they have a 2-3 week turnover, 99% chance they are just ordering it from the Chinese anyway.

No you are right, that is too much money for just one fairing.

Like I said, look around at reviews, work with the chinese, get yourself a cheap set and enjoy your bike. You will most likely drop it again.

Good luck.
