not sure exactly what type of plastic the fairing is but if it is ABS then you can weld it back together - you can buy ABS welding rods and then use a decent soldering iron to weld them back together - have done it on my old bike. there's also a chemical welding method but can't recall which chemicals you need...

for the plastic welding you basically file the cracks to make a nice groove (the ABS rods should be a triangular cross-section) until the rods sit in them nicely, then apply the soldering iron to melt it all together... takes a bit of practice but i dropped my old super tenere on the welds plenty of time and they didn't crack again....
