At the 2:11 mark, the grommet in the side cowling is missing. That happens a lot. When installing the side cowling, be careful to mate the parts. A little silicone grease in the center hole will help keep the grommet from being pushed out. This is how it should look. The procedure is also covered at Fuel Tank Removal How to, 650 & 1000

Here is some more detail on the plastic rivets from Plastic fairing rivets (Push pins - pop rivets). How do they work?

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

The plastic push rivets are commonly $6 for a pack of 10 in many motorcycle shops. Some auto parts stores might also have the same fasteners.

Does that include the two larger diameter ones under the front cowling used by the DL1000?
