I took a fairing off my bike which had broken a nub. I told my dealership that I broke it, and not to worry about it when they take that same fairing off for the service work that I wanted. They went ahead and replaced the fairing under warranty, no charge.
Generally, a dealership will want to cover warranty claims because they are reimbursed and get paid for the repair work. There is no incentive to deny it. It comes down to whether Corporate covers it or not.
Honestly it depends on a lot of things. If the fairing has a lot of unrelated damage, then they may not cover it, or they may ask you to pay for half. I don't know what clip you are referring to, but if it's an alignment clip and isn't used to secure the fairing onto the bike, then they probably won't cover it. That's just a guess though.
