    So I've got the rear fender all mounted, and I see where a duzse fastener is used as the rear retainer on the seat. What type if any grommets or washers are also used? Again, a picture would be greatly appreciated as none of the books I have show a clear shot and the parts book is less than helpful.
    Thanks

    Thank you for the picture. Whats confusing me is the parts books lists the fastener, a grommet for fastener, and a rubber washer for fastener. I'm assuming the grommet goes on the hole in the fender then? The rubber washer is there as both a buffer between the seat and fender and also to keep the fastener with the seat bracket with the seat off?

    I will post a picture tomorrow, 2/17/20. I am not with my bike now.

    I am the original owner, so I know my Dzus fastener is as original.

    Mine does not have a grommet. There is a steel washer that is under the head of the Dzus screw. On the underside of the seat bracket, there is an approx 0.090" thick neoprene washer that acts as a buffer to the fender, and also keeps the Dzus screw in place.

    Thanks Slick. So far this has been like putting a jigsaw puzzle together without the box top picture, some of the pieces missing and others thrown in that don't belong, but I'm getting there!

    Slick, any chance you could post a picture of the bottom part attached to the fender. I have the Dzus screw but it seems very long, not sure how bottom part works. Thanks in advance.

    The wire is riveted flush to the underside of the fender, as in Beach's picture.

    The Dzus fastener has a coin slotted head 0.625" dia, and measures 0.837" overall, and 0.725" from the underside of the head to the end of the shaft. the steel washer measures 0.760" OD x 0.390" ID x 0.85" thick and is slightly convex. The neoprene washer is approx 1.025" OD x 0.3" ID x 0.090" thick.

    The hole in the seat bracket is 0.435" dia. The dia of the Dzus fastener where it passes thru the seat bracket hole is 0.312" leaving a gap of 0.123", possibly enough for a grommet.

    HTH,

    Slick
