Recommendations for rear hugger?

Postby Greenman14 » Tue Sep 26, 2017 7:15 pm

Just bought a Tracer and it clearly needs some sort of hugger. A quick Google and browse found quite a few, any recommendations from them wot knows?

I added a Pyramid extension to the standard hugger. Your message sounds as if it doesn't have a hugger already?

I ended up with the Pyramid extension to the original hugger. It seemed like good value. Sprayed the assembly in a close match to the dark grey of the tank on my Mountain Green bike and it looks ok.

I bought a carbon hugger then added the Pyramid carbon extension on to it.

Then purchased a Pyramid carbon splash guard as I fitted a tail tidy and was still getting a wet backside.

The hugger I bought seems to be a good compromise. It's a Skidmarx one that replaces the stupid thing fitted as standard and is integral with a moulded in chainguard.
The good thing about it is that it covers the gap where road dirt comes forward off the tyre straight on to the spring and shock. It also comes down the side of the tyre a bit as well.
Well moulded and supplied with special fixings that stop you crushing and cracking the glass fibre.
Not that cheap at about £99.00 but I recon worth it.
It could still benefit from being a couple of inches longer but I guess it might loose rigidity if it was. Better than others I looked at anyway.
