The price mark up on all OEM stuff is so high, its ridiculous. I printed out what Ron Ayers was advertising for his fairings, and brought it to my local dealer.

I suspect that the dealer would've given me even more of a discount, had I approched him differently, since I bought almost a complete set. Anyway, I'm a horribble negotiator, and I still saved more than ordering thru the internet.
Make sure you hold on to all your old fairings, because you'll need all the bolts and those PITA "wellnuts" to hold them all together.
