SP1 rear hugger

Looking for a rear hugger for my SP1. Can anyone give me any recommendations.
I've found some but they are across the pond and pricey. Thanks.

I bought a decent fiberglass hugger (in black shiny gelcoat) from cruiserbackrest.com [which is now Bestem Co.] located in Tucker GA in 2007 for a mere $60. Still looks great, fits solidly, etc. However, it appears that in the ensuing decade they have evolved to making quality carbon fiber items including RC undertails and front fenders....but no hugger.

However, they seem to be big on customer service and answering the phone, so maybe contact them and see if they still have that hugger mold or maybe they're thinking about a CF version? Can't hurt.

Well, I gave them a call and it's a no go. They said that they do not stock them or make them any more. I'll keep on looking. Hopefully something will turn up.

That's too bad, but Good On Ya for reporting back to us!

That TYGA item looks damn nice, if a little spendy.

Thats too bad mate. I did a quick search and looks like webike out of Japan stocks them maybe worth checking. Have you tried your local dealership?
