Cool Installed Dzus Fasteners on Lower Fairings

I've been wanting to do this for a while now. I finally ordered some Dzus fasteners from KurveyGirl.com (they have several styles to choose from) and installed them on my lower fairings (these are OEM fairings, but they carry shorter Dzus fasteners for track fairing as well). I only had to do a very tiny amount of trimming and a little bit of modification to the clips for the left side.

Here is the result:



P.S. I also Plasti Dipped the bike orange again!

After having DZUS on my bikes, it is one of the first mods that I do to anything that I own now. It really makes fairing removal a breeze. Good job on the install. Looks sharp!

I miss using Dzuz ...have a bunch them I can't use on either of my bikes because my Hotbodies fairings don't fit very well together, so in some areas the spacing is off and they don't reach the locking piece.

OEM. I just updated my original post to reflect this now.

1) you can crimp the clip-on style dzus clamps to make them a little closer or you can also buy longer fasteners =)
