Re-installing the rubber pad where the tailcase goes

Any special tricks to it or is it just simply a bit of dish soap and some long needle nose pliers? Bought my bike today and the previous owner didn't put it back on after he took off his tailcase.

Just did this last week and an exacto knife to trim the inner edges a bit soapy water and yes needle nose pliers all work well.

Silicone spray persuades the "Nubs". I found that needle nose, alone, would pull the ends off. Used a small tip straight blade screwdriver to push the nub while my Sig Other pulled slighty with the needle nose. My .02 cents. They are a ROYAL Pain In The A$$!

I'm still trying to figure out why people take them off. My top case mounted up and has stayed tight.
