Hugger

Who has one and who doesnt? I don't and I run a 190/55 rear. I am thinking about getting a hugger to protect my undertail. Concerned about fitment.

If you spend time on the track or do burnouts the tire spin will kick up hot rubber on your undertail and is really tough to clean up. I'm sure some of the tech's know performance benefits. Aesthetically it looks great and keeps road junk off your undertail.

It will likely depend on the hugger. Some members had fitment issues when switching to the 55 profile rear, others have not...different huggers will fit a little differently.

Also, I do not run a hugger and I have tons of crap on my undertail from the track.

2001 SP1 (sold)
2004 SP2 (properly stored)
2012 Ruckus (stolen)
2015 Grom (under construction)

Weyrauch pronounced (Y Rock)...Rock for short.

I recently bought and installed Tyga's for $91 + $23 shipping ... and while it will protect the swing arm pretty well, it's not gonna protect the undertail much at all. Bought it 50% for swing arm protection (and to cover up a battery acid drip streak on it) and 50% looks )

Tyga small hugger WILL fit with OEM chain guard

RC Devil has a near new Magical Racing hugger - I have one & it fits with a 190/55R17, no problem. Also offers good protection for the underside of the bike. The downside is it'll mark your swing arm over time where it sits against. But then all huggers will do that...

Euro RC51 SP2: HRC WSB Ti Hi-Level, T1 Airbox & Snorkel, PCIII, Dymag CA5 Carbon Wheels, Ti64 Spindles (F, R & Swing Arm), Mori Link, Maxton GP7 Shock & Ohlins 832 Forks, Brembo GP Calipers & SBK narrow track (F), Braketech Disc (R), Brembo billet Underslung x 2 Brembo RCS, Tyga Triple, 7075 Stem, Probolt Titanium all over, Babyface rearsets, MR Complete Carbon Lineup, Custom Undertail & CBR 1000 LED, Watsen LED Indicators, Harris Brace, Giles clip-ons, Corbin seat, etc. 2013 BOTY.

Near new huh? Hmmmm....interesting. I don't have a hugger on my SP1, but I really think it would be a good idea to get one.

I bought the larger one off RC Devil, it's a little wonky on fitment which is normal but nothing serious so I'm gonna drill a rivnut on the front right where it needs to be pulled down, at the moment I have washers under the bolts to lift it up. I believe some come with some tape to hold it down. I do love the look and I got it for a great price.
