Default Help fairing question

Hello question i have 1997 cbr900rr
Just removed front fairing and i noticed the plastic tabs have insert threads for screwing on head lamp and two larger for covers for fues pannel and switches i removed the larger threaded tab inserts but the smaller ones (4)total for the headlamp mounts are not comming out .. i can remove them with force .this head fairing is to far gone to save
. do i need these tabs or when i buy a new front piece do they come with them already installed, ? Or where i can get them ... If anyone knows any help is apricatded and pointing in the right direction as best fairings . I have looked at alot on ebay and Delvic company has one for 79.96 thks

I would keep them just in case. I dunno about the other fairing companies but the chinese ones from ebay don't come with any hardware they're literally just the plastic pieces.
Maybe you could try heating the plastic around it to soften it?

Those are molded in to the fairing. They should come in the new ones.

But with aftermarket fairings, you never know.
