Question Does the rear hugger from twinshack.co require zip-ties?

I'm probably getting a new 09' green Versys in about a month or so, and since I live in Washington state I know that I'm going to need a hugger if I want the bike to stay somewhat clean. I know some of the rear huggers from other companies require zip-ties to help hold it in place, but I don't want to have to do that. I get OCD about small details like that. My question is in the title, but does the rear hugger from twinshack.co require zip-ties?

Nope, it's held on with metric bolts all around (no new ones are included with the hugger)

Mounting points:
Two are on your chain guard which has to come off, you can use these same bolts on the hugger.
One is where the rear brake line attaches to the inside of yer swingarm. You can also re-use this bolt.
And one is on the top of the swingarm around where the shock attaches. There's already a tapped hole here that you use, but you will need to find a bolt- same thread as the others.

Hey fellow Warshingtonian, where are you getting that? I can't find those anywhere.

If you have Speedy's lowering kit, you'll have to cut away a small section to clear the lowering block - and the upper bolt hole will be unavailable. But it all works well anyway.
These issues were discussed in another thread. Good luck.
