    Fitting a Hugger

    Looking at an  2 year old thread re' fitting Huggers and whether rear wheel/muffler removal is needed, it seems that the Pyramid Hugger is impossible to fit without removing wheel/muffler, I am now claiming a possible world record, I have successfully fitted the Pyramid without removing anything  :046: :046: :046:.
    But, it was horrendously difficult and I would prefer to be shot than do it again  :151: :151: :151:

    Absolutely out of the question pistonbroke,  :001: I was so knackered afterwards I considered phoning for an ambulance  :087:, but I did manage to go for a monster pub meal and liquid refreshment later  :152: :152: :152:

     :187: But why?? All that chatter!
    Removing 5 bolts would solve all the obstacles you now sufferd  :138:
    Or dont you have the centerstand? Then it could make sense... a bit.

    BTW: Congrats with your worldrecord   :047:  :001:

    I did'nt fancy removing the wheel for the simple reason that I don't possess a torque wrench and there is no way I'll ride a bike bike with the rear wheel nuts torque set incorrectly. :151:
