Anyone have experience fixing this tab that is no longer there?

Molding kit? Glue?  Epoxy?

Would love to hear your experience with doing this?

That looks like one of the plastic tabs that goes into a rubber grommet, correct? The only thing that I could think of is if you can source an Allen head bolt of roughly the same size as what is missing from your piece and then either epoxy it in place/JB Weld or similar (such that the Allen head, being round will go through the grommet). Some people have had success using super glue and baking soda (they apply the baking soda in the region where they want to repair and then pour super glue over the little pile of baking soda, and apparently, it makes a permanent bond). I had one detach from the side panel of my ST 1100 without breaking queen off and I have epoxied it years ago and it still holds to this day. The other recommendation I have is to either use some silicone grease or silicone spray on the grommet as well as on whatever you ultimately use to go through the grommet so that it doesn’t stick when being inserted into the rubber grommet.

There are lots of members who have fixed this kind of thing but I am not one of them. Assuming you can fix it, and I think you can, using plumbers lubricant (water-based) on all the rubber grommets etc; does make for easier removal and insertion.

A fix is definetely worth a go.

A little off track but just to share this. My Goldwing trike uses these rubber grommets and past history tells me that they eventually crack and get deformed. My 2005 trike uses these and a few days ago the side panel came loose and nearly escaped! As the panels themselves are quite expensive, I looked at the grommets, one was missing and one mangled!

Dennis Kirk ( https://www.denniskirk.com/) carrys the Show Chrome grommets for 5 dollars for a pack of 5. I bought 2 packs and replaced the one side and all is fine now. I will do the other side when next I check the oil.

My point is, you might replace the grommets on the Silver Wing before the situation gets too bad.

Using the Plast-Aid (or similar) product, you can make a mould imprint of this fitting using the other side's skirt panel (assuming it has a similar one).

Then fabricate the fitting using the Plast-Aid materials. Finally, affix the one you replicated back into place where the missing one is/was.

I've used this method several times on various broken fittings on my SWing's panels and it works.
