I'll give strong votes for 1 or 2 as well.
Street plastics won't survive anything but the gentlest lowside, and even then, their resale value will plummet. How long do you plan on keeping the RR? I've crashed race plastics twice. Once at pretty high speeds. the only damage was from where the foot peg smashed through part of the tail section, after the rearset had snapped off at the bolts. and i've SEEN a ton of crashes on track bodywork. it's more durable, and more repairable than stock ABS by a billion percent.
If you can afford to keep the street plastics, I would do so. it's much easier (and more profitable) to sell a street-legal bike. The market is just far larger, and the consumers aren't nearly as well educated, so they're more likely to pay you more than its worth.
