i was saying that about kurveygirl because when i emailed them thats what they told me. and i dont know if you have every worked with zinc coated parts but they wear/fade with time.
Thank you for your Dzus fastener question.
We have had several bike builder purchase the "Genuine Ducati Dzus" fasteners for Yamaha R1 project bikes. These bolts may require a bit of "Adjusting" of the mounting clips for a perfect fit. The tab may need to be adjusted as the Ducati Dzus bolts have a 1mm shorter working length.

The Ducati Dzus bolts have a "gold" appearance finish, but please note these are not a bright 24k type gold finish.
As a final note, we have not done a Yamaha R1 build with these bolts. The heads are larger than the OEM hardware and may need some adjustment for the best fit and appearance.
Let us know if you have any more questions.
