Cost-Effective source of plastic rivets?

Where can I get an assortment of the "plastic rivets" used in the 2012 FJR? At a good price?

I have never checked a dealer, but I did buy something like this off ebay, from china so it takes a while > https://www.ebay.ca/itm/Fairing-Bolt...Vc4WE6&vxp=mtr

I last bought them in 2015 at this link. If I recall correctly they had multiple sizes. These work in almost every application I had on my 13 FjR.
