Default Lower fairing bolts and clip - Help!

Picked up some road rash, went to take off my lower left and the Damn bolts just keep turning! Seems the clips the screws fit into are turning. I guess my last trip into the Dealer they over tightened them. So, what I need help in is suggestions, such as drill off the bolt heads or other ideas. I don't have the parts manual so if someone could provide me with the size, number and matching clip parts I need to replace, it would be appreciated.

No. The nuts turn on the back of the three clamps that go around the crash bar.
You have to hold them with a wrench.
Watch my video on how to remove them.

Mike (et al.): if you take the lowers off, it would be an opportune time to add some stretchy-sticks-to-itself tape underneath the clamps. I did this 3+ years ago, to keep the lowers from drifting inward (which they did, before that, no matter how tight I made the bolts), so that the fairing winglets can't hit the lowers (which they will, if the lowers creep inward).
