Honda hugger off the VFR1200 fits the Crosstourer, so I guess other makes ought to.  In fact, my Honda dealer says it fits even more easily because the rear tyre is smaller.

Hi, wonder why the 1200f brake calliper is mounted underneath and the CT is on top of the differential unit and the wheel sizes are the same, How does the Puig quality compare to the Pyramid or other brands

A hugger will be an addition once I get a bike, It looks very bare at the back end and certainly the GS when it rains means a very wet left leg unless a hugger or something else is fitted.
Just looking at the Crosstourer it looks as if it will have the same problem in the wet.

It will be interesting to see what people opt for and recommend.

Picked a genuine Honda VFR1200F hugger up from eBay last week for £72, brand new without box and 1 washer missing. Cancelled order apparently.

Fitted no problem at all to the CT. I did add a bit of insertion rubber to the bottom of the hugger and cable tied it to the bottom of the suspension to give it a bit of protection from the crap thrown from the wheel

My dealer had two seperate Pyramid huggers comming, both were mounted and appeared to be crooked, now I have the VFR-hugger and it`s just fine!
