I was surprised to receive my hugger well before the expected delivery date.
I think it wil do the job for the street bike. The off roader it is obvious a not.
Check the price on the invoice.







It'll work for me.

That was the posted price back when I bought mine it was never $8. That said you can make an offer at a lower price and may save a few bucks. I got mine for $32 plus shipping was just under $50 to my door.

I've contacted the seller and am waiting for them to determine what they shipped and how to resolve the discrepancy. Though I won't be waiting more than a couple days before filing a dispute with eBay and PayPal.
Just curious if anyone in Canada finally got one of these and has some photos to share.

No pictures of my fender at this time, but it is identical to the one others have shared pictures of. The big 170/60 Shinko 705 fills it fairly well, but with plenty of space left. I could stop by sometime later in the week to show it to you in person if you'd like.

Skidmarx Hugger Installed

My only reason for consideration would be if I wanted to go to tires similar to the big 170/60 Shinko 705, which would mean the front gets changed, I have been running PR-4 on the rear and Dunlop OEM on the front, 90% of my riding is paved road. Seems that in all my riding using street bikes , both times I went down was due to deep ungraded gravel, something a all wheel drive car would have had difficulty in. I like my Skidmarx hugger but am fairly sure the Shinko wouldn't fit .

I ordered two of the China huggers just now. $33 each shipped.

ETA says 11/22/19, but I expect it much sooner than that. Iíll update the thread when they arrive.

I have an idea about the plastic threaded rivet. Iím going to heat the tip of a Philips screw driver and press it into the plastic head, to see I can unscrew it out.

If I have to Iíll use some super glue on the driver and plastic screw to help it hold.

======================

I was basically getting my Philippine 19í Versys washed every other day I was there at the two local car washes in my small town.

They were doing road construction to the only road directly out of town. Long sections of road was always wet with red clay, where the road was being repaved 3 ft higher, above flooding height.

Luckily for me the car washes were only $1 to less than $2 (50 to 80 Pesos) to have a guy hand wash the bike spotless. Spent half hour to an hour cleaning the bike. I even left a bottle behind of good car wax and had the guy wax the bike as necessary. Tipped them good. Helping out the local economy.

My SOCAL California daily commuter Versys barely even gets dirty in comparison. The road is hardly ever wet, unless someoneís lawn sprinkler runs too long. I wash it once a month.

As for this ebay thing, I can't imagine how yet another tangential mud guard could possibly help. It looks very inconvenient for wheel access, and I might be taken for a bmw... oh the horror! :-D
those are required by law in europe. i have one for my caponord. it's on the shelf in the garage. i believe it's to reduce the spray onto the vehicle following you on a wet road. maybe you'd be mistaken for an mv agusta.

Since everyone is adding their two cents worth on rear huggers, heres my home made hugger. I harvested it from my dead 83 Interceptor and retro-fitted it. It helps but if you really want to keep the spring and below area clean you need to add the fasteddie hanging rubber flap.
