Yep.  Not a major task to do.

Fitted huggers to loads of bikes and never had to remove a wheel before. Don't think I can be bothered.

On a previous thread of mine I claimed the world record for fitting a hugger on my 2018 CT without removing the wheel or the exhaust   :020: BUT, it was bloody difficult  :005:

I removed the rear wheel. Just loosen the exhaust clamp bolt and remove the top bolt, then you can turn the muffler away from the wheel without actually removing the muffler completely. Otherwise it will be hard to tightened those two bolts that holds the hugger.

I have a pyramid hugger on mine.
I was also disappointed, as mine would not sit central as it should.  Its offset to the shaft side like yours but no where near as bad, so I am living with it for the time being. 
I cannot see how you can fit it wrong as all the holes are in a fixed position.

To me its a case of the pre-drilled holes on the hugger are wrong.

If I was you, I would check to make sure your bolts are all tight and that it's fitting tight against the back wall.  Double the size of the spacer on your swing arm. You'll have to put a longer bolt too. That might help.

Now that I have cut the end of my hugger, re-positioned it in in the same two hole and added the extra spacer on the swing arm, it has sufficient clearance. Unfortunately, it's short by 2 or 3 inches.

I don't understand why everyone else have fitted the hugger properly, except for the both of us. Maybe you should remove it and try installing it again.

Doesn't sound good. Think I'll look at the R&G model.

This is odd, had my Pyramid hugger on two CTs with no issues.
Please take no offence but sometime ago an owner had an issue with the Pyramid hugger, he’d put the two spacers round the wrong way, meant the hugger was mounted crooked.
