    Best hugger

    Hi,

    Love my 'new' bike but after a wet ride yesterday it is clear that I need a hugger to protect the back of the engine / suspension from crap thrown up by the rear wheel. I have been looking for the Honda OEM part, but sadly it has been discontinued, are there any other decent ones still available?

    Thanks Spanish

    I've seen several R&G (and Bodystyle) like this, but it is repairable with a thin metal strip



    Anyone tried the Powerbronze?

    Hi. I have to say that I do not like the r&g. I have the option of the oem from the states but its pricy.

    Went oem in the end. I'll take a pic when it arrives, which could be in a week or two as its being posted from the US. I had one on my vfr1200FD and they are do look good.

    Hi, Just ebay 'VFR1200F OEM Hugger'. I bough the VFR1200F variant as that is all that is advertised, but according to my calculations it should be good for the VFR1200X

    'F' Wheel size = 190/55 R17. So radius = 17/2 + (0.55 * 190) = 8.5" + 105.0mm, Width = 190mm
    'X' Wheel size = 150/70 R17, So radius = 17/2 + (0.70 * 150) = 8.5" + 104.5mm, Width = 150mm

    So 'F' hugger is good for the 'X'
