Which Hugger....
« on: February 16, 2015, 12:34:50 PM »
Hi all...

Probably in the wrong section, but I'll give it a shot......  Which rear hugger are you all going for? I have seen several on the aftermarket accessory websites, but to be honest, the majority either look ill fitting or just plain naff....

Any input would be greatly appreciated.. :)

Thanks

Steve..

R&G, purely for being mat black and matching my bike. Although I believe that the Pyramid gives better protection to the lower suspension linkage , so I ended up adding a flap to the front of my hugger to protect the linkage and rear shocker.

Thanks for the input guys.....

Has anyone here had any experience with the Puig?....  This one is catching my eye for similar reasons as Saxon747 noted... It looks sturdy and relatively simple to fit...

Has anyone used / seen this one?....

Thanks again guys..    :)

Steve.

I got the one off the VFR1200F. Subtle, but does its job of keeping the shock clean.
