    The rivets have a little button that is in the rivet hollow center. You need to get a small screw driver and drive it in from the side to remove the little rivet cap, then drill the heads off the rivets.

    I am not sure how it is on the GPR, Rich would certainly know.
    On my FZR when I just replaced my bumpers and rails, I carefully drilled the rivet head. Once the head was gone, I was able to push the rivet through from outside towards the hull. I tried the longer rivets and apparently weren't long enough and my rivet gun didnt have a long enough nose to really get in there enough. So, I went with Stainless Steel round cap screw and nylon lock nut. Worked perfectly.
