The 10 and the 11 are the same. So, yes, it'll fit.

Agree with Weljo - Powerbronze hugger is a fairly good fit and looks good too. I live about 50 miles from their HQ on the south coast (UK).

I went with "skidmarx's" hugger......bought it though "streetfighters by design" in California...
...fit like a charm and I was impressed with the hardware that came with it.
Good folk there at 'streetfighters by design'.

Hows the west cost green hornet rep doin' these days?
The skid marx piece comes black gel-coat....but matching the swing-arm just felt right (I always meant to go green with it when I finally got one)....and yours....It has that 'race ready' feel to it...most excellent find...rat-bastard....
Guess we own a pretty popular bike to have four or five different hugger makers alone...even though we hardly ever see each other!

The Puig I got won't fit. It's going back.
I called streetfighters by design to ask if the skidmarx will fit a 2011. The guy will get back to me Monday. He quoted a price of $165 ($265 for carbon fiber).
Told him I heard about them hear and you paid $150 shipped (stated in another post). He said no way and that he's been sellng them in the U.S. for two years and never at that price. Actualy said you must be lieing. I'm right here in CA, shipping should be less. What the heck...

I see your in Tracy. I'm in the Santa Rosa area. If you ever want to come over and do a ride on Hwy 1, let me know. If that versman guy wants to go, we may have to wait for him some (kidding, he's my brother).

I may have miss quoted the price..but, I did order it direct from the manufacturer as i didn't know there was USA distributor. They bumped the order to 'Streetfighters'....which may have effected the price. ????
I was in regular communication (many e-mail updates over several months) with 'Streetfighters' regarding another manufacturers "new and improved' hugger, which was neither! that may have effected price too???? (and maybe they threw me a bone cuz I had waited for many months on"the other hugger")...
Anyway, sorry for any confusion BUT.....All parties involved DID deliver on what I believe to be Quality goods...and 'Streetfighters' were a joy to deal with. I would order from them again in a New York minute.
My apologies to both 'Streetfighters' and you.
