If the dealer won't help you, a very cool plastic repair product called PlastiFix will be your best friend if you give it a try. It will work on any rigid plastic.
ABS, PVC, CPVC, PE (nylon) and on....
I repaired a pretty badly damaged Concours mid fairing with the stuff and it came out beautifully and STRONG. That part was over eight hundred dollars for a replacement. I fixed it for about 15 dollars. I recently fixed a Ducati ST4 side panel for a friend good as new. He back into the bike with his pickup tailgate in the down position. Ouch...
I have also fixed computer printer bodywork, vacuum cleaners, car door interior handles and a ton of other stuff with PlastiFix. Incredible stuff. It costs around $30 but you get enough material to do lots of repairs.
Oh yeah, you can even create missing body work tabs, fix stripped plastic threads, and all kinds of neat stuff.
PlastiFix is made by the Urethane Supply Company, an excellent American company.
That being said I hope the dealer hooks you up with a new fairing. That should never fall apart like that unless of course you hit something as in a crash.
