Hello all versys riders. i need some help on finding a rear tire huger for my versys. I saw some of em on ebay.com but for some reason i dont really like em. they are too short. i want something that really looks like a tire huger. has any of you found different once on some other websites?
Thank you so much.
I am right pleased with my Skidmarx hugger. It is a medium sized hugger, not too big, blends in nicely, and does and excellent job protecting the important bits. Pyramid makes a bigger hugger, which might give you slightly more protection, but IMHO it looks a little gangly. Oh, the Skidmarx hugger also fit perfectly, and drops down below the swing arm in front so you dont get crud build up between the mating surface of the hugger and the swingarm. I kinda liked that as well.
I looked about for a while before ordering a hugger and
I have ordered this one from pyramid plastics...
I thought the Pyramid was supposed to be difficult to fit, required modification. most of he people I've spoken to or heard from reccommend the Ermax hugger. That may be because the Ermax can come colour matched I suppose
did you have any difficulty in fitting the Pyramid hugger?
I also bought the Pyramid model. I've only been able to test it for a couple hundred miles before having to put the bike away for winter. I still seem to get mud/dirt up under the tail for some reason - more testing is needed to verify this. But, most annoying is the tapping sound on some bumps. Where the plastic touches the swingarm is mostly like the culprit. I'm going to put some rubber stick on bumbers like for cupboard doors to fix the problem. Installation was simple - three screws, that's it. Looks good though
I too bought a Skidmarx, I have Shorty's lowering kit, I was really impressed with the fit, plus it came in black!I like the fact that it uses the brake line bracket hole to support the hugger with the included hardware. I ended up drilling a slot on the chain guard side at the front, then used a 100 lb. black tywrap to anchor the front corner.
