Getting K1200LT back to the life

I am still working on getting my k1200lt back in to the life. Some pictures how the bike has looking „before” as well as progress report available here: http://www.bmwlt.com/forums/album.php?albumid=89
Last month got all the Tupperware parts and put them on the bike to see if everything fits well and there are no more parts missing, but before of that also run the engine for the first time and made my first couple of kilometers.. Amazing feeling, need to say!

Now all the plastic parts are given away for re-spray and I started to put all the other stuff together.
So, got a question, what are the part/-s missing (see yellow ring in pictures below) that holds the info panel at it`s place? I see that there two screws - one at each side and then this part in the middle? What is the part fixing this so it is standing there permanently?
Thanks in advance! BR, A/

I'm having a hard time viewing your pics because I'm using a phone and when I try to zoom the picture disappears?

However, if I'm not mistaken I believe what you need is a piece of rubber that slides over the male stud prior to plugging it into the hole. It works exactly like the stud on the side spoiler next to the battery cover.

I believe these are used for alignment purposes, as well as to reduce vibrations.

Thanks for reply!
I believe You are right..! It looks like there is a space for a rubber spacer or something like that... Ofcourse, I can simply use a bunch of tape and problem solved.., but this time want to make the bike as good/as close as possible to how it was before it was crashed.. especially becuase I`ve got in condition it was.
Maybe someone knows the part number?
