Carbon fiber hugger

I am planning on purchasing a hugger from carbonpartz . Has anyone here purchased from this company before ? If so how was the quality and fit ? Stuff looks good . Just wanted to know how good it was with the members who might have dealt with this company .

Try Tyga Performance or Magical Racing. I think Ermax makes some too, RC51parts.com might have some too, just ask Ben.

I've had personal experience with the owner, I won't ever be going back to his products.

I have the front and rear hugger and the rear cowl section with solo cover all in carbon from Tyga. The stuff is good quality for the price.

Haven't tried any of Tyga's parts aside from the top yoke (Which is perfect!) but can vouch for Magical racing's products as excellent.

The Tyga rear hugger's design doesn't look as if it would keep much crud from the underside of the bike, compared to MR's.

I'm running a Puig hugger on my SP1. It had a carbon print on it, but I painted it trim black. Found it on Ebay (thanks to Madbuyer) for about $75.
It seems to be made from the same tough ABS that the OEM plastics are made of, and it fits really good. Just the right amount of clearance for a 190/55.
The best thing is how good of coverage it has. Nothing flings up on my shock anymore.
