I WILL LIST PICTURES OF THE PLASTIC HERE AND TRY TO DESCRIBE ANY CRACKS OR DAMAGE THE BEST I CAN

This is the left side upper fairing , it had a few cracks in it , the way we fixxed the cracks is sand the piece down (as you can see this piece is sanded down and being repaired) we sand the piece down clean it several times with M.E.K. then we use a 3M marine 2 part plastic epoxy then re-inforce the backing by mixxing the 3M epoxy into fiber glass matting , apply it to the back side of the crack , this works and is strong for life , I have done this to many many bikes in the past and it never fails. This fairing will need work done to it "fine sanding primered and painted"

The right side upper fairing is in pretty good shape may have one or two small stress cracks around bolt holes nothing major.
 
As the picture shows this piece is also sanded down.

The side panels are perfect . I took these pictures showing the front side of one and the rear (back side) of the other and vise vera , to show all the clips are here no cracks nothing is broke off they pop right on and off like they should , no repair needed , sand prime and paint .

The two side luggage bags have badly faded paint on them the left bag has cracks in the bottom pretty bad, not a big job in my opinion to fix but depending on how handy you are it could be a hassle. the right side bag is nice a few minor cracks around the hinges. The right side bag had the lock that locks the bag to the bike all froze up with the spare key broke off in it. I know we drilled that lock out to remove the bag , not sure if the lock is still around he planned to replace that and I don't think he did.

This is the left bag as the picture shows the bottom is broke out pretty bad. it could be fixxed depending on your skills, It still opens and closes fine locks and unlocks fine , and when this bag id on the bike you almost cant see the cracks in the bottom at least we did not notice them till we removed them from the bike,( Fixable )

Here is a good picure of the bottom of the right bag nothing major just a few small stress cracks and a small hole or two around the hinges.
 
but again like I said what I consider just a easy fix , you might consider worthless depending on your ability to fix the problem.
