I bought aftermarket plastics and have to install rubber grommets in front fairing area by the head lights. Having quite the challenge getting those things in. Anybody have any advice?

You can also try put the grommets into some hot water and dish soap for a few minutes. It softens up the rubber enough to squish them in.

The advantage of dish soap, it won't hurt the material whereas silicon spray may. Plus the dish soap will wash off.

+1 on dish soap or soapy water. They are perfect for getting hoses onto fittings, grommets into holes, cables into grommets ect. like Mr Brown says it is non harmful and seems to evaporate away.
