    REAR HUGGER WANTED

    Anyone selling a rear Hugger for my 2012 Crosstourer ? Ideally black or carbon fibre.
    I'm assuming that the VFR1200 F will also fit.

    I'm not selling one but have one fitted, think it's the R&G hugger. Only had the bike a few  months and it seems to make no difference to the amount of crap thrown all over the bike.
    Just have a check to see if one is better than another before parting with your hard earned  :028:

    Thanks pal. Appreciate the advice.
    Might not bother. The cheapest I can find is £100+.
    Seems a lot for a bit of plastic.

    Ive had a Pyramid plastics hugger for about 5 years and 40k(over two CTs) no issues what so ever. Ok it doesnt keep the very back of the bike clean but does ruduce the crap thats thrown up a fair bit and also protects the shock and linkage.

    I reckon the Pyramid one is better than the one I have. Good call Hartley.

    As Hartley said, hugger will protect rear shock and linkage.  I have one (also from Pyramid) and wouldn't be without it.

    If you want to reduce (eliminate?) the spray to the back of the bike, you want a duck tail - https://goo.gl/Fcm32a.

    I've had one on both my CTs, and never have a problem with road crap on the top box or me.

    All rear huggers are crappy so buy the cheapest!

    Tried Pyramid, R&G and Bodystyle, they all cracked at the same spot.

    And I've seen more cracked besides my own bike.

    Is that because you've been riding offroad?  I've had huggers on at least 5 bikes over 20 years, and never had one crack.
