5K US? You're in the US so why would it be anything else? Is the bike in Canada?
As for the fairing Ebay, Craigslist and/or OEM distributors like Ronayers, etc.
Thanks Sam, I hope you don't mind I call you that, as I you you are a woman Samatha.
I don't know why I put US I guess 'cause I know we're all not in the USA.
It's registered and ridden in Chicago area Ill.- he is an Audi salesman North of Chicago- not too far from me.
I'm sure it's all in MIles/Fahrenheit, etc.
Not 100% sure if this piece is what you are looking for but this is the side fairing, OEM, blue, new for $265.99. This is for the piece that has the R on it. Back to the US dollar question I asked, if it's a Canadian bike that is not a US imported then you may not want to buy it. For whatever reason Canadian bikes cannot change between miles and kilometers. It will be in kilometers only and temperature will be Celsius. Even if it could be changed it will not change C to F just as US bikes can change miles to kilometers but temperature will remain in F so a new cluster would be needed unless you are OK with metric.

Thank you for those links to parts sources, etc. That's what I needed- I've never had to buy anything like this yet. While it's cosmetic, I'd want to return it to mint quality plastics everywhere.
$5k is too much for anything less than all mint with those miles. It should have closer to 10k-12k miles for that condition and price.
Thanks Nick, I will keep looking near me for that, but this was by far the best I could find in what I wanted, and it's still under 15K miles. He has it currently listed at $5750, and as much I wold want this bike if it runs right like mine did (and my engine still does btw!)- I couldn't pay that for the stratched left fairings.
Re. changing between °C and °F. I had an exchange of emails with bluegauges a couple years ago where IIRC he claimed to be able to do that. But Canada isn't 2 hours away from Franklin so this may be irrelevant.
"it got some scrapes on the left side of the fairings" Some incidental in & out of a truck scratches or has it been dropped?
Your pics seem to have expired but I thought that you crashed on the right side. Am I mistaken or was the left also torn up?
Is the wife OK with this?
Thanks Bill, was hoping you'd chime in too! It looks like it's been down on the left side and slide on the ground some. I'll try again and load all the pictures he sent me.
If you were referring to my bike, my left side and top are totaled wasted- I couldn't re-use any of those if that's what you were referring to.
I'll call him back again today about his asking price, etc.
My basic question was: Could I find OEM and/or mint condition plastic pieces to replace these left sided ones, and about hos much, Sam and others answered this.
Thank you all for your replies.
I'm trying to correct many typos, it's still very hard for me to even type.
And Bil,- No my wife is probably definitely NOT oK with this. We have been married for over 22 years, and still have a really nice marriage. She has already overheard some of my searchs, and kinda knows I want a bike again.
