Worth a call to these people to see what can be done to bring it back to its former glory?

Thanks for the tip. It's going under the nose of a company in Silverstone this week to look at it. Hopefully they can sort it easily!

Update time.

I got the fairing repaired by basically cutting the damage away. You can't really see where the piece has been removed so I'm happy with that. I also sanded and sprayed the kickstand in time for Milton Keynes Bike Show where I had arranged for our branch to have a stand.

The Stand

While we were just a club stand, the selection of bikes got some good interest and a few people have since mentioned they spotted the bike there. Hopefully we'll get a few more down to the monthly meets.

A few days later, I went out for a spin with a mate who has a 749. We got up to Peterborough Ducati and I picked up a clear tank pad. The alternative is the carbon one but it's not real so it isn't for me! That's where the good day started to go south.

We decided to go to a local photo spot and about 50m from the location my gear lever went floppy! I rolled to a stop and found that a bolt had worked its way out of the new rearsets. Luckily, I found it on the road roughly where I hoped it might have been and retrieved it. Unfortunately, I had no tools so my mate went off to get some alan keys. The bolt was on the inside so it took about an hour of faffing to get most of the rearset off and repair.

We then set off to a pre-arranged meet and on the way my bag opened itself and my new tank pad and I parted company! FFS!

At least I got some good pics while I was awaiting repairs:
