Front fairing

I have a 2007 ninja 500r with stock headlight/fairing. Today I had my bike knocked over by some kid and he refused to give me but a small amount of money, I'm wanting to upgrade to a different front fairing so I can have a better looking headlight then the stock one, does anyone have any tips on how to upgrade stock headlight/fairing for cheap? I have decided not to go with the streetfighter look as I do commute on highway and have been good it's not ideal for highway speeds.

Your easiest option may be to fix the one you have.

I have had good luck repairing cracks like that, and at stress areas like that, using an epoxy fiberglass repair. I don't bother repainting, so it leaves a hair line crack when done without repainting, but I'm personally ok with that. I usually have at least one or two cracks that need to be fixed every year.
