You may be able to get them from a dealer, but they'll be expensive... shop around so you know what you're getting into.    Ebay will also work, way cheaper, but may take time. Depending on what you'll settle for, or how much of a hurry you're in... some plastic crack repair or painting may be needed.    Anyway, there's lots of info here, so keep asking questions.

Railroad, the best place to find plastics is on ebay.  The main, forward fairing pieces are not cheap even there, but with patience and cash money, you can eventually put together a decent set.  I've done it several times.  I can paint though, and do not worry about colors.  If you need to buy parts already painted for your year model, the task becomes exponentially more difficult.    EDIT TO ADD:  Greg is right, all fairings are still available NEW if you have deep enough pockets, and www.ronayers.com has a microfiche prgram online that will let you find out the prices.  If you take the part numbers and write em down, Murph may be able to help get the parts... it's worth a shot.
