RC51 SP2 Tire Huger

Looking for a Tire Huger for a RC51 SP2. Other links posted are in Europe and they do not ship to US. Does any one know if the CBR 1000 tire huger would fit the SP2

I have this one, but I did some modifying to get it to fit with the chain guard:

Not certain, but I think your only outlet is e-bay

Duct tape can't fix stupid...but it sure helps muffle the sound

Ayuh. And I had to pay duty and shipping on top to get mine. I'm not always fiscally responsible when it comes to my bikes...
But does give me the warm and fuzzies

Hey as long as you are happy thats all that matters in the end. There are quiet a few options when it comes to CBR 1000 RR as well as the Repsol, also much cheaper too. I wonder if one of those can be retrofitted onto the RC51

I have a carbon version that I took off of my SP2. I will sell it if you're interested.

Thought of that myself, but with the many days of rain we get, I still like it to keep the crap off the underside of the bike's suspension and stuff.

I use a 55 rear profile and was told there was no way my hugger would fit. But I got 1 or 2 chain links added and it slotted in nicely once the wheel was moved back a bit.
