supplier or replacement idea for those little plastic screw/clip things

Hey all,

I'm referring to the plastic screw/clip-in fasteners that hold the fairings together at the bottom. Has anyone tried other fasteners for those? They're quite often a sacrificial part in my experience.

On the same note, does anyone happen to know a supplier for those other than Honda that sells em cheap?

- Scuffed bar weights & brake lever from asphalt acrobatics
- Road grime under the fender and tail
- Leo Vince exhaust
- Otherwise OEM, not gonna make BOTY any time soon

No plastic for me, I'm using the rubber well nuts that were for the windscreen.

I use the plastic screw's/nuts for number plates. Easy to get off/reuse, and readily available at motor parts stores. To make installation easier just glue the nuts inside the fairing before assembly, then just pop the screw in, and nip up.

I use GM trim clips. They're very common on all the GM trucks and SUV's in the US. I don't know how available they would be in Germany.
