04 gixxer fairing removal..?

might seem like a dumb question but i have to ask, trying to remove the oil filter i need to take the fairing off, now i got the 6 hex screws out, but i can;t figuere out the mechanism to take off the plastic fasterners that are on the bottom and the top right of the fairing. i cant see the way to take them off, i tried to like squeeze the inside part while pulling on the outside but that didt work, i tried just straight up pulling on it and it won;t budge, how do these come off?

I remove the plastic push pins by pressing the center post in from the back side with a flat blade screw driver. I put them back in by first putting in just the outer part through the fairing holes and then pushing in thge center post. It is a good idea to pick up some spares to have on hand since the break easily.

Zipties work just as good, if not better, and they`re easier

for the ones on the bottom and on the inside near the radiator pry the center up slightly using a flathead screwdriver then pull the whole assembly(they do not come completely apart). for the small one that attach to the upper just push the center in using the 4mm hex that you use on the screws

Complicity? Simplexity? Its simply too complicated for me.
