Remove the fairing and plastic weld or fibre glass repair the inside. Check all your fasteners, this happens now and again due to improper installation or worn out and loose fasteners.

Check the two support arms that hold the nose onto the dash plates. If they're loose, or worse, cracked from a drop, this happens quite easily from normal riding. As Donsy said, remove the nose and epoxy it. It'll be barely noticeable, but if you don't find the cause it'll happen again.

Are the clear plastic grommets on the paint side of the screen fastener present?

I am not sure which fasteners you mean exactly. I will check the side mounts tomorrow and come back to you guys.

The windscreen fasteners are bolts that go into a wellnut on the underside of the nose fairing. There is a clear or black washer that should be on there, iirc. I believe it acts as a dampener.

Exact same thing happend to mine due to the pips in the support arms being sheared off. That was down to poor fitting carbon dash plates - I had 3 sets of them that all went back.

There is some stress on that part of the nose cone - I failed to fix it, bought a carbon one in the end and repaired the pips in the arms...sort of

Ah yes, I totally forgot about those little nubs! Luckily mine have always remained full and perky but I do recall many who've sheared them off because of a tip over. And it makes total sense that in their absence, the nose fairing will have more wiggle room, causing cracks.

I'd also add that the two long allen bolts (one on each side of the bike) that go into the dash plates on a 45ish degree angle, should be the proper torque. I think that over tightening them might add to stress on the nose.

Holy crap. That's totally unacceptable.

Take them to the disputes tribunal.

Costs $45 to lodge a claim.
