Default Problems with A/M plastics.

So I bought a plastics kit, used... The tail, front fender, side pieces fit great, much to my surprise. But the front piece around the headlight makes up for it.

The vents dont snap in like the OEM piece. They are a little off of being flush. The bottom mount on each was broken off, and replaces with a nut glued on. If you guessd that this nut broke off, you would be right.

The piece de resistance. The headlight mount. First.. on the OEM piece one of the metal inserts in the lower mount must have come loose and is just spinning, so I cannot get the old one out. On the new piece... The 2 upper mounts for the headlight. are completely missing.

I am not sure what to do from here, any help would be appreciated.

I would get a new front from the company, I wouldn't have bought used for the reason of not knowing what was wrong with them. I have aftermarket auctmarts fairings and they were great for my F4i.

What bike do you have?
