I have the Skidmarx and Speedy's kit on my '09, that close enough?

I had to modify the hugger as the lowering knuckle was in the way. I used a coping saw, a 3/8" drill bit to create the radius, and a sanding block. Measured it all up, marked it out on masking tape on the hugger. I used black RTV so compensate for the missing mounting point & keep it secured to the swingarm. It worked well. Still Hugging today.
