The Pyramid hugger looks as short as the oem that let crud on the shock.

The Skidmarx hugger looks good, but both say for 2015 - ? Mine's a 2014, I wasn't aware of a change.

Here's a follow up to my broken hugger...
I tried a plastic weld, and as suspected 12 miles up the road and the repair has already broken, in both places.
This is on the lug on the RH side of the swing arm:

....and this is the RH fixture underneath, next to the tyre:


So I went for a Powerbronze replacement which is quite a bit bigger than the OE, even with it's Pyramid extension and has a better overlap with the chain guard:



Here we are fitted and ready to go:


Seems to fit quite well with just a small gap where the hugger meets the swing arm.
Also not sure I like the metal bracket supporting the inside of the chain guard - might have to get that off and paint it black before it rusts :151:

That looks a lot better than I remember when I was looking for a hugger. Wonder if they changed the design  :084:
Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool.

The pic on their website looks shorter & gloss black?


There's a choice of gloss, matt and carbon effect, I went for matt as I thought it was closest to OE, and it's quite close.
Just checked the website, it looks like I has the last matt black one as it's not listed now.

Does the replacement substantially reduce the amount of crap going up the back of your legs? That was an issue with my old ST, much less so with the Tiger SE and I can see in winter, this TS is going to plaster shite everywhere...

Dunno yet, just fitted at the weekend, I'd guess not as the majority of the muck is a very fine deposit that seems to get everywhere.
Roads never used to be this mucky, I'm sure I didn't need to go on a major bike cleaning operation after riding in the wet back in the day.

Or swap it for one that actually works


(Skidmarx)

The Skidmarx looks like it'll do a better job of keeping the crud contained.
