Those plastic fairing "buttons"

I've pretty well trashed one of these before I knew that there is actually a button in the center to push to remove. Anyone know where I can get some replacements? Is this a standard connector or is this Suzuki specific? I'm talking specifically about the ones that hold the "chin" on. Thanks!

Did the same thing and would like to know as well before I tear back into the fairing to do the horn, lights, etc. upgrade.

Try this. I believe the small ones are M6 and large M8.

They can also be found at some auto parts.

Buy extra. They are inexpensive, easy to carry in your tool kit and they do wear out.

Well, I almost popped one of those things off, but since I am so meticulous whenever I do any work I am not used to doing (especially), I was really surprised to find so many of those pop connections. I hope I do not have to remove a side-panel any time soon!
