    Plastic Rivets - replacement

    Any one know of the best UK source for the plastic rivets as used at the bottom of the fairing?

    They were brutes to remove yesterday, so I want to get some spares in again the next time in case I have any more issues with them

    FWIW I am getting  a list together of sources for various other "bits and bobs" - buying button head M5 screws from the Triumph parts site at £5.00 each is not a route I would take!! Screwfix are far for reasonable!

    I believe they are called "Screvits" - Screw - Rivets.

    Once I realised they had a Cross-Head screw to be undone before the "Rivet" part can be removed they were easier to remove.

    It's still a two-handed job (I find I have to pinch together the Rivet inner part to be able to unscrew the Screw part) and not really "Fit for Purpose" in my view..
    But they are made of Plastic which is their one saving grace... Previous Lower Fairing fittings on the First Generation Trophies were metal captive nuts and screws which invariably don't last too long either

    Totally agree
    Even pinching them together is failing to get the screw to bite and unscrew on one of mine now- hence looking for replacements ready for the time I have to destroy one to get it out

    I believe they are called "Screvits" - Screw - Rivets.

    Close ! - Try "Scrivets"  :028:

    eBay is always a good place to hunt - Searching for "Scrivets" brings back lots of results,
    and different sizes, such as these ....
    ( not sure if they are the right size for the bottom of the Fairing without measuring one )  :

    10x Hole Plastic Fairing & Trim Panel Clips ( 10 for 99p inc. Postage ! )

    The trick when trying to remove them is NOT to push inwards with the screwdriver,
    ( like you would if you were undoing a really tight wood screw),
    which will prevent the Scrivet from unscrewing, and will damage the fine threads,
    but to turn the driver with as little downward force as possible, allowing those fine plastic threads to unscrew  :169:
