Ebay hong kong stuff is cheap but will work. Fitment won't be as good as OEM but OEM is expensive when replacing multiple panels.

Going out on a limb, we get quite a bit of those types of body kits fitted to sportbikes that come through the shop.

The 600rr and gsxr 600/750 kits have been getting better and better, presumably because more and more batches are being made and they can "refine" them from customer feedback....

But the ZX-12R....is honestly kind of a relatively rare sportbike when you think about it compared to the sea of busas, 14s, gsxrs, cbrs, etc. So there is a good chance not as many people have tried it and/or could weigh in on it.

If you can dig deep and pick up a new or used OEM part(s) thats what you'd want for a truely perfect fit.

But if you're ok with it looking ok from 10 feet away and wrestling with bodywork that might not line up perfectly, possibly hearing stress cracks along the way then go for it. OEM is expensive.
