Hugger

I was just wondering what the usa guys do for huggers on their bikes?

The nice looking ones seem to be on the other side of the pond and I don't know if they are available to buy here. The ones I've seen here just don't seem to fit the look of the bike as well.

I have the green Frog Specialties one.
Had some problems with alignment but after some tweaking it fit well.
Customer service and shipping were great.

+1 on the Ermax from Frog Specialties. Once I found the best place to put the spacer for the brake line bracket the Ermax fit great and the paint match was perfect.

Can you guys elaborate on these points?

Spend the extra $$$ and get a Twinshack. Best fit, doesn't smack into the battery box and looks the best.



I have now painted it in matt black and looks much better.

It's been a while since I put it on but if I recall correctly; there is a rubber spacer used between the hugger and the mount for the brake hose. When I put a rubber spacer in the location recommended in the instructions, the hugger was not centered on the wheel/tire so I put the spacer under the hugger and everything lined up perfect.

I really like the twinshack hugger. The ermax from frog specialties seems pretty expensive. More expensive than the twinshack.

Ermax Hugger

Here's my Ermax. A little bit expensive, but it's been trouble free and I like the look:

Thanks for the picture hand. Machog would you be able to post a pic of your hugger zoomed out a bit?

Hopefully Gustavo will pick up on this, because I know his does, but not sure what brand it is.

Thanks machog. I really like that hugger a lot. I think it looks much better than the ermax.

Now I guess I just have to call the UK to order one.
