    Pyramid Tyre Hugger

    Fitted the Rear tyre hugger today...Took about 20 minutes. To get the wheel off undo the nuts. Let some air out of the tyre, give it a yank and there you go. Or just roll it back as far as it goes. Little cramped but not hard. Thing looks a bit dicky though. Could be more to the right side to cover the tyre evenly. Must check out the VFR, see how it looks in there being a wider wheel.
    By the way....Anyone ever considered putting the 190 VFR wheel on. Probably fit and that would look cool.

    Cheers

    Wouldn't it just, the back wheel is so skinny on the CT.

    I've had mine on for one ride, in the dirt, and it did a great job of keeping the shock area clean.

    Hmmmm......... 190 rear!! yum! Would alter the handling, but for better or worse? If it was mechanically ok to put one on, I'd order one up today.....

    It might LOOK cool but I wouldn't be too sure about the handling when combining it with a 19" skinny front wheel

    If you want a sports bike buy a 1200F?  :305:
