Fairing/mirror stay pins

Having dismantled my 750 (2000) fairing for respray, I've discovered that the mirror stay pins on one side are missing. They appear to have sheared off at some time in the past.
Will this affect refitting the stay? If so, is it possible to drill out the hole and replace?

(I've searched the site and can't find any threads/posts on this, before someone asks)

Many folks, including me, have bikes with missing mirror stalk pins. What it does to you is make it a bit more difficult to engage the turn signal buttons on reassembly.
I believe these are broken by impatient folks disassembling and reassembling the nose fairing. There is a step to loosen the two mirror mount nuts (per side) BEFORE loosening and removing the stalk hold down bolts.
You don’t need to do anything. Or, you can center punch and drill and tap the spots left by the broken off stubs and then install small round head screws to replace the missing stubs.
This approach requires the screw heads to be small enough to center in the receiving holes without preventing the contacts from coming together.

One side of mine had missing pins and it would result in a flaky turn signal at times. Id have to tighten/loosen the bolt to get them to work.

You could drill out the hole and press something in but I found a replacement bracket used for pretty cheap. Dont remember how much but it was cheap enough to be "why bother."

I did the same although it didn't seem to be a problem getting my indicators to work, bought a cheap as new pair from ebay as replacements, as one side was sheared off.

I by-passed the pin connectors ..The last thing I want in modern traffic is a blinker to decide not to work..... I know they work by and large but.....

Thanks, folks. All eBay brackets currently have sheared pins! There's a pair of NOS from Italy for around 100 which is a little pricey for me.
I'm going to try to drill and replace.
2 more Qs

1/ Are the pins cast in, or pressed in?

2/ More importantly, on the mirror end, do the two mirror retaining holes have inserts/washers pressed in? 3 of mine have but not one?

Not sure on the mirror end, never had a problem there so never even looked closely. I dont see why there would be anything in there since its really just being sandwiched between the head of the bolt and the faring.

As far as the pins are concerned they are actually part of the casting of the mirror support, shaped like a nipple. not sure if this direct link to an ebay pic works but you can see the front pin (rear is sheared off):

Really other than the one missing its right ones Ive never had trouble. Once i replaced that guy its its been fine since. And the design makes taking the front clip off so easy.

How will the bolt secure that stay? If the recess for the bolt head isn't a press in collar (I doubt it) it is a machined recess and yours has been broken out. What does the other side look like?

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

The mirror on that side was secured with a non-standard bolt and large washer. The others with standard bolts. The "inserts" seem to be brass-coloured washers, securely fixed, but there's no rebate inside the hole to fix them!
I wondered what the proper stays should look like.
