Fitting a hugger.

I picked up my new 2012 F4R and have a rear hugger to fit, has anyone installed one of these, what screws do I need, I don't want to remove the back wheel to do it, any tips?

Hi and congratulation. Yes you need to remove the rear wheel and you need 3rubber bushing, 3 washers and 3 screws. You should find the parts at any Mv dealer.

Not too sure on the size for the Y10+ bikes. But usualy you would need the 3 x 5mm wellnuts and capped screws, you can get these from pro-bolt and forum sponsors as well as many places on eBay.

Its absolutely much easier to do if you remove the rear wheel but from personal experience I can tell you that if you have a socket drive with a universal joint and some patience its possible to fit a hugger with the wheel in place.

Congratulations on your new bike And fitting a hugger is a great idea..

But, why not just take the wheel off?

It's good to take a wheel off as it means it is unlikely to be a big problem when you eventually "have" to take it off. You can check the threads are correctly greased and that there is no corrosion on the mating faces of wheel to spindle.... You can also check the hub bearing smoothness of rotation while you're there.. Always useful..

It's just one nut...turn clockwise..take wheel off...

Is the Y10 swing arm predrilled to take the hugger wellnuts ?


Badboy..."You should find the parts at any Mv dealer."..... They will put them on special order from Italy and you will see them maybe in six months time ...

I bought this before I found the forum - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/MV-Agusta-...item4aa92a8880

There are probably cheaper options but this was easy and cheap enough IMO

On the MY12 F4 the swing arm is indeed pre-drilled to take a hugger.

Thanks all sorted now.
I need to leave the back wheel in as I don't yet have a stand for it.
Cheers
