Do any of you guys know the purpose of that front fairing shroud that is held in by 6 or so weak clips that are prone to breaking? It sits a bit below the triple tree and this piece of shit is somehow broken on both my bikes so I need to order a replacement but I am not sure what this piece is even called. Is it even necessary?

It is if you prefer replacing that versus the radiator. Also the OEM part sites will tell you the name

If you mean the body cowl cover, it helps direct air through the radiator & oil cooler instead of up into the area around the cluster, etc. But we can't tell if this is what you're referring to. The clips shouldn't be breaking. Note that OEM clips are Delrin while aftermarket clips are nylon.
