Front Fairing Cracked - UPDATE

I wiped my bike down two days ago no crack. I drove it to work and I wipe it down last night when I get home. I go to the garage tonite looking for my watch any I glance over at the front of my bike and it stood out like a black eye - the fairing has a crack in it front the bottom left of the wind screen across the nose and under the left side of the intake housing. The crack is about as wide the tip of a normal size screw driver. No evidence that something hit it. Any ideas how this happen? Should I go to the dealer and see if its a warranty item of contact insurance?

Its a 06 zx-10 5 months old with 9000 miles on it.

do you still have the stock windscreen on have you changed it...i had a friend that cracked his front fairing after changing to the double bubble...he probably cranked down the screws too tight...i doubt you will get any help at the dealer for warranty coverage and as far as insurance i guess you would have to way the cost difference vs your deductable.

UPDATE:

Dealer contacted Kawasaki and Kawasaki is going to replace the cracked nose piece and paint all the plastics so they match. I think that is wonderful news.
