It sounds like someone may have lost some hardware when servicing this bike. Allen-head screws, Phillips-head screws and plastic rivets are the only hardware used to attach the fairing/cowling. I don't think there should be any hex-head screws used.
Also some of the Allen- head screws have shoulders which prevent the head from pinching the plastic. Incorrect substitution will, over time, cause the plastics to crack.
