Best thing to hold race bodywork together?

what is the best method for holding the race upper and lower together? Zues fasteners? normal fairing "threaded clips" with a bolt? Half turn fasteneres?

What does everyone use?

Dont say zipties, those are already holdin the street bodywork on, i would like some real fasteners for the rae work

The fasteners 1/2 turn are handy. Do you need to take off bodywork often? if yes then d-ring dzus. If you use it street alot then dont use D-ring someone might just jack them.

THAT is the trick... getting the right length is the hard part. Mostly they will all be the same length but sometimes a few will be different.
I'm sure Patrick will know what works.
