Bike got keyed, how should I fix this?

Some hater keyed my bike! It was actually like this when I bought it, I figured it would be no big deal to fix since it is almost all on the sticker. check out the damage!

first link is the fiche for the lower fairing, second is a better picture of my lower fairing. From what I can tell there are 4(?) separate stickers on the fairing: The suzuki emblem, the decal at the top of the piece, and the gsx and the r emblems overlaid on top of the last decal. To replace the sticker that got keyed I would need to replace all of these except for the suzuki emblem.

Update:

What is the difference between 3 and 4 on the fiche? I'm thinking that I will need to change out 4 and 5, which comes out to almost $110?

I'm leaning towards just wet sanding the mark down and covering it with an alpinestar decal. Any other suggestions?

Update 2:

could touch up paint work here?

    The touch-up paint would be the least expensive way to go. If you're good at it, it can come out looking pretty good. Up close, you will always be able to tell it was touched up. But a few feet away, it won't be noticeable.

    And that's a shame to happen to a cool-looking bike like that too.

    Replacing decals is a pain. Last time I broke my fairings, I just welded and repainted them and didn't bother to replace the decals.

    The 3-4 on the fiche is for the left or right side decal.

    That parts fiche doesn't tell you which is which.

    If you want it original...you have no choice but to get new stickers..

    otherwise....sand the fairing back & get a nice mural / paint job done on it.....still going to cost you some money anyway..
