Rear hugger installation

Anyone know how the OEM carbon hugger fits to a standard 2014/2015 F4? I have been told that there are three holes on the swing arm already. I am not currently at home with my machine but I want to order the part from MV but want to know how it fits before I buy

Yes, there are 3 holes already in the swing arm. You'll need 3 wellnuts for installation (should be supplied with the hugger). And if you don't already have a rear wheel nut socket, this is a good reason to get one.

OEM - 'original equipment manufacture' (just the standard MV one from my MV dealer). I will let you know how the install goes

Yes there are 3 holes in the swing arm.this is classic MV,off with the wheel but you can see why they do it this way when it's on as there's no bolts showing and looks super clean and cool

Forget the size but GP Performance has the wellnuts. Just be careful putting them on, one of my wellnut rubber half is inside the swingarm until the hub gets serviced
I managed to install the OEM carbon hugger without removing the rear wheel. It took a bit of time and thought to tighten the three screws with the tire in the way. I also used double sided foam trim mounting tape epdm material to completely seal the mating surface between carbon and swingarm.
Someday I'm going to be able to take this bike apart by myself, but I need to collect the equipment up to do it properly.

I own a 2014 F4 in Red / Silver.
Added a rear fender in carbon fiber directly from MV Agusta cost about $350 US dollars. The fender did not include anything to attach it to the rear swing arm. To attach the rear fender I bought from the MV Agusta dealership one PUIG Windscreen Screw Kit Black part number 561-0099BK cost $15.99. The dealership removed the rear wheel for me and attached the rear fender.
I was ignorant thinking for $350 the rear fender must already come with fasteners to attach to the swing arm but no it does not.
The owner of the dealership installed it for free for me right there on the show room floor. After all I just paid $350 for a fender and an additional $15.99 since it seems no one had a clue that the fender did not come with the three fasteners to fit into the three holes already in the swing arm.
