Cool tools

If you haven't seen or used these yet, they work great. I can pull my fairings off in about a third of the time. You also don't have to worry about scratching them.

I'm a little confused as to what exactly these things do? Allen wrenches with a built-in flex joint?

They don't rachet but they do swivel. I am personally not a fan of powertools when it comes to bikes and cars because if you slip you can scratch the paint. Maybe I am just a cluts.

No but kind of expensive.

Ryan, why didn't you include the price tag?

The clip replaced the slide-on clip on the backside plastics. Then the dzus goes on the outside.


about 15/clip right?

I have never checked retail on them. But I have seen them for WAY less than $15 each on ebay. I think it was 2 sets of ten that sold together for less than $25 shipped.

Cheapest place I have found the Dzus fasteners (which are 1/4 turn not 1/2 turn as mentioned earlier). Yamaha R1's come with 1/4 turn screws already and you can replace just the screw and not the back if you would like.

I picked up a set of 10 black finish for my new plastics for $28! Only $2.80 per fastener
