DZUS Fasteners
« on: January 21, 2007, 07:01:47 pm »
I am in the middle of installing Attack race bodywork to my '06 Kawasaki 636 and was looking for recommendations on which type fasterners I should use.  When I bought the bodywork I ordered the type offered by Attack (http://www.attackperformance.com/ARBProducts.html), but now think I should have ordered the quick release type.

Any advice?

I am not sure what you mean by quick release type as all dzus fasteners are quick release. On a side note i just installed attack body work on my gsxr and i used a different type of dzus but it is still quick release just like the ones you ordered.

You are correct, all dzus fasterners are quick release.  I meant to refer to the d-ring type.

By the way, any advice on installing the fasteners?  Pictures would be great.

I prefer the D-ring style, with either the "clip-on" or "rivet plate" receptacle.  Never been a big fan of the non-plate rivet type receptacle.

Good info here:  http://www.southco.com/resources/documents/d2.en.pdf   Not dial-up safe.

+1,  I prefer the clip-on style also. When you have to change bodywork they can be easily removed vs. the rivet style. The clip-ons are much more user friendly.

Thanks. 

"Survey says" . . . . . . . . "clip + D-ring is the number one answer."

i'm late on this one, but yeah. the clip/d-ring is far better. hand down.
i've flipped, rolled, slid, and everything else on the bikes on the street and track and i've yet to lose one.

my sharkskinz came with them installed with the fastners, my attack on the other hand came with the bike and had nothing on them, so i use zipties (they are more readily available, and i dont lose them on the track)

ive always had a couple of those quick release screws fall out on the track.  ive used tape, so i finally safety wired them together so they wouldn't vibrate out.
