I suspect I need six. I'll call patrick tomorrow to see what he has in stock.

Any opinions about the Dzus fastener backs that are riveted on instead of the one that slide on the race plastics?

Curt - Like SMJ82 said Motorcycles Unlimited has them (or at least they did, and they are quite pricey) the ones I got from them included both the male and female portion and were the D -ring type which do not require any type of screw driver to use them once installed. There are several aircraft hardware suppliers that have them as well, but most of them will require a phillips head screw driver use (which are actually my preference fwiw).

Thanks, Radar. What is your opinion on Dsuz female part that is riveted to the plastics instead of sliding over them?

I don't have any experience with the riveted type installed into plastic. I have replaced some on a friends Duc which I bought from Patrick and they were the slide over receptacle - they worked fine, but were not an exact match to the factory ones on the Duc. I have used and been around the riveted type working on aircraft, but they were riveted into metal - sounds wrong, but the phillips head like used on aircraft are really fast and efficient to use. Here is an aircraft supplier that will happily deal with individuals on small orders - they are in San Antonio - don't have much of a website, but have a very good inventory and are nice folks if you have the time.

If you are wanting to get something done quick and easy I'd go with the ones Patrick has.

Dsuz are the way to go. So removing the lower takes about 10 seconds well worth the price IMO. Ive never used the rivet type only the ones that slide over the plastic.

They always recommend clip style in lieu of the rivet. One reason is that the clip type will not tear your bodywork in the event of a crash like the rivet type.

They have them at cycle gear, too. Patrick's price looks a little cheaper, though.

I only had to buy the d-ring because my bike's stock allen screws were quarter turn.

I always use Kurveygirl.com. She has 10pc sets for 28.00 and she donates a portion of that to the Roadracing World air fence fund to protect us racers. She has Dzus fasteners for every application and a variety of type (rivet/slip-on) and colors. I think I had mine in 3 days plus a couple cool vinyl decals.
