SP2 Hugger (Rear Fender)?

I have seen some rear fenders (some times called hugger's not sure why?) on some SP2's. Is there a reasonable place to get one or modify one without spending $350? They just don't seem to be worth that kind of money in my mind yet I would like to have one to keep my shock and under tail clean.

Color01 NICE just what the doctor ordered! Did it require any mods to fit? I did not know about this and wonder why others are asking $350 for em....$88 is reasonable for Carbon if its real carbon-graphite. They also have Bump Pads for $15 which I can deal with (or make one myself??).

I just installed one of the Tyga huggers yesterday. You will have to drill (3) holes in it but it's easy once you find the exact location. What I did to install it on my '04 was build up some masking tape layers on the bottom of the hugger where the brake line boss is as well as the other side where there is a rivet hole in the swingarm. I put the rivet (without the locking pin) in that hole so there would be something to transfer the location. Then, put the hugger in place on the swingarm and press down firmly where the rivet and the brake line boss is. Carefully pull the hugger back out and you should see the round impressions in the masking tape that show you exactly where to drill. Match the size of the hole in the hose clamp and the rivet hole (they are different sizes) and your almost done. Finally, use the aluminum clamp for the hose to show you the location of the last hole beside the one on the right side. It lets the little tab on the clamp drop in and lock in position. Finally, remove the supplied tape, drop it back in place and lock it in. Very secure and takes about 30 minutes if you take your time and doublecheck everything. Also, put tape on both sides of the carbon fiber before you drill to help keep it from chipping or fraying. BTW, I pulled the trigger the week before he put them on sale so grab one before they go back up....

I put on both sides of the Hugger a little Playdo..and placed the hugger on the swingarm..when I took it off...I could see on the Playdo where I had to drill.
