So on my K75s and R1150 and others, I always sand down the male portion to make it smoother, smaller, and easier to insert and remove.
    I like to put a little silicone or dielectric grease on these grommets ease the slid in process. A very small electrical ties wrapped through the center of the grommet will keep the grommet in place.

    I removed the lateral body panel. Initially used JB Weld A&B to attach broken tab. Then supported it with some metal and additional JB Weld. Pics are attached.

    I also use grease so they come off/on a lot easier.
