I've looked on-line and on Ebay but can't find any really good sources for Dzus fasteners. I need the slip on type recepticle w/ the stand Dzus fasterner/ring. Any ideas?

Thanks.. that is a pretty good deal.. 6x = $20 vs the 3x = $15 that Lockhart and the rest of the online retailers sell for. I figured there had to be some deals on these things, there's not that much to them. $5/each seems crazy, and yes I Ducati OEM sells them for like $15 EACH!

Those Dzus pins are a little shorter than what you will find on a Ducati. The base is a little narrower than the 748-998 type as well. The wider base of the Ducati Dzus fasteners don't pull through as easy on tight fitting fairings

That's actually a good thing since this race bodywork is quite a bit thinner than the stock bodywork. The standard Ducati Dzus fasteners didn't grab as tightly as I'd like them to.

If I am not mistaken..the latch distance is the same on both. I think the pin is just a little longer to the catch easier...Add an extra plastic washer to either one to get it to close tighter...

Go to MSCdirect.com and then do a search for quarter turn fasteners (dzus fasteners will get you nowhere). You will find a bunch of choices as far as stud reach, stud diameter and mount type. I have used these in the part and they are great. Just random prices I saw the studs are about $0.50 each and I think the mounts are about $0.61 each. You have to buy quantities of ten, but it winds up pretty cheap.

This guy is great!!! I ordered mine @ like midnight on Friday (Saturday morning) and they arrived in the mail on Monday! I highly recommend ordering from him. And they are the real Dzus fasteners, not imitations. Thanks for pointing out that thread to me.
Did you simply "PM" the guy on 13x forums or did you order them directly from Parts411.com?

Thanks ..
