Hmm... I haven't had too much experience with this but I believe it would work decent with the deep scratches. The front fairing I'm not too sure about.

bondo would be too brittle and it would crack and look bad after a little while. I forget what i used but it was made specifically for plastics.

use plastic weld... it comes in a tube like a 2 part epoxy at the auto parts store. costs like 5 bucks.. heats up and fuses the crack back together, sand smooth then. let me know if you need any help with it.
