Pics of the offending article might help   mine came with a metal bracket that bolts to the swinging arm and the hugger bolted to that

Send it back if it doesn't fit and get a refund. I have the latest R and G hugger and it is top quality and easy to fit no need to remove the back wheel try www.sportouring.com the guy does some fantastic deals

I have the R&G and yes it was a bit of a pain to fit, but its a perfect fit with no rubbing etc

I have pyramid made (fibre, not plastic), and after one hour I am having grinding marks and a bit of it gone. Doesn't grind on standstill. Gravel roads, speed and Heidenau K60 Scout tyre. I guess nothing will last on my use...

1st thing you need to do Neil is contact the seller on ebay. Get the right one or your money back.

2nd thing is buy a Pyramid hugger on ebay, this can be fitted in 5 minutes, looks good and provides a little bit of protection under the swingarm.

Job done.  :028:
I'm not as dumb as you look.
