Put a new mirror on and start riding. While you're riding, you won't notice the scratches.

Coming into the garage the other day, hit the switch from the street and continued riding up the driveway. Door opened just above the view of the top rim of the helmet then suddenly stopped. Of course, I didn't notice.
Rode in, whacked my head, wrenched my neck backward. Hurt like hell and couldn't turn my head for a couple days.
Bummer about your bike but it happens, and it's an easy fix. The sting of scratches on a 20-day new bike will fade.

Welding the mirror gets mixed reviews because of the material it is made of. I talked to a few welders and they suggested against it but some people on the site state that it works just fine.
You can get an EMGO replacement which seem to be a perfect match from what I read when looking for a replacement. If going OEM, there are no other ones that will work apart from a 02-09 VFR unfortunately.
