On motorcycles I have quite often had to rebuild or replace plastic pegs that hold bodywork panels and fairings in place. Have to really, given a panel can cost a fortune for the sake of a flimsy broken peg. ABS is easy - plastic welding, epoxy, Plastex, all work fine. But nylon and polythene/polypropylene cannot be plastic welded, and adhesives don't tolerate its 'greasiness' well.
Golf tees come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, you may be able to re-purpose one to form a peg, upside down. IE a small hole through the engine cover and a spring clip washer to hold it in place, cut off the excess 'spike' and cover with a blob of sugru or epoxy putty. Or use a black numberplate bolt through a hole, clamped with a nut underneath, and build up a shaped peg on the threaded part with epoxy putty.
It's strangely enjoyable mending stuff like this...
