Left Mid Fairing Question

I recently took off my left mid fairing to find that one of the rubbery little knobs, that the allen screws go into, fell off.

I tried to get it back in, only to break the little rubbery receptical piece.

Here are some pictures:








How do I get that little rubber piece back in? I tried forcing it with pliers and other such tools, only to break it.

the easiest way to do that is soapy water slide in just one half
of the groment's edge that pull the rest with your fingers or needle nose

I actually found that pressing one side in, and then taking a small screwdriver and gently prying around the edge that is hung on the fairing works fairly well... I popped one of installing my frame sliders last night and it only took about 5 minutes worth of work to get it back on - didn't goober up the screw backing either.

Here's a trick, slip it in from the back. Much easier...

I tried to pull it through with pliers, just like it was described here and ended up ripping little pieces off of the rubber.

I guess I will have to try soapy water.

I had the exact same problem just a bit ago. www.ronayers.com is a great site to find the missing pieces you need with OEM #'s. You can also just go to your corner mechanic to get them also.

I was outside working on mine last night at about 11:30pm and I was able to get mine in from the back. I snuck my hands in from behind the fairing and fed that little lip through the hole. As I rotated the rubber piece I used my finger nail and a little screwdriver bit to work the rest of the lip through. Its a major pain and I suggest that if you do order the pieces you need that you get five or six extra. They wont be more than a buck a piece.
