rear Hugger
« on: April 22, 2012, 01:41:22 PM »
Guys, i had a quick look at the swing arm on the CT and it looks just like my VFR1200FD, can we presume then that the hugger will fit both??
Looks like it will to me, anybody tried one yet?

I think you may be right, it looks the same to me too
The Honda original for the VFR is €172 in Germany - not bad when I think how much cleaning it will save. :062:

Mmm...
...I'll check it out with my dealer so see if it fits.  :084:

guys
i took my genuine hugger off my VFR1200FD today and fitted it to my CT, it all seems to fit ok. I don't understand why Honda have not offered it as an option yet??

It looks like there's a good clearance to the tyre - should be OK for off-road rides too.

I also fitted the side deflectors, tank pad and the centre stand, just a better screen and some engine protectors to find and fit now!!

I'm still waiting for my main stand. I bought the taller touring screen but can't get it right - it needs to be 3-4 inches taller!
Deflectors and tank pad are good. Hugger is on the cards, but summer tours, wife and kids, are straining resources.

@ zpowerdave

Did you fit the centre stand yourself ? My dealer suggested on some bikes the exhaust had to be removed to pass the centre stand bolt through the frame-eyes. Is this correct for the Crosstourer ?

I was about to order the centre stand, but lost my enthusiasm at the thought of removing the exhaust headers.
