Well, the IPO (Idea OT Previous Owner) has done it again. As I am trying to tear into the bike for adding additional farkles, I noticed that the little studs/screws/bolts that hold the little plastic piece above the gas tank in place are not the OEM. They are more like plastic screws and they have been stripped so it will be a PITA to get them off. Here's a pic of what I've got. I had to squeeze my phone under the handlebars to take a backwards picture. Any thoughts?


Picture is upside down.

They're obviously some kind of one shot fastener. If you can't wiggle the center back up then I'd reach in there with a set of side cutters and cut them off. Pick up the proper ones at any automotive supply shop or the dealer.

The real rivets cost me $6 for a ten-pack at the local mc dealer.
