dumbcomputers,

Looks nice!

Is that a stock plastic F4 rear hugger on your bike? Was it a bolt on item? Were the holes tapped on your swingarm? I have an eMoto hugger on my bike now that fits like CRAP and want to switch over to the stock one, either the plastic one or the carbon one.

Thanks, Phil

Yep, OEM hugger. My swingarm was already drilled. I had the eMoto one and it fit pretty well but I decided I didn't like the look after a while (too big). It sat really close to the tire and the spacing was larger of the left side of the tire vs. the right.

I have heard that you have to remove the tire to fit that. Is that true or is there enough room to sneak the hardware in? I wish that MV would have listed that for fitment on their website, as I would have just bought that instead of the eMoto one.

Thanks, Phil

I as able to do it without removing the tire but it was REALLLLY HARD!!!!

Go to any MV dealer and ask them to order this part number 8000A6400. It should only be about $40. Mine didn't come with any fasteners.

Thanks, my Dealer actually has one in stock. They also have a carbon fiber one in stock for about $300.00. I did remind them about the hardware. I like the way it fits MUCH better than the eMoto one.

Thanks, Phil

I think the solo seat looks great on your bike. I like the unpainted look as much as the red. Are you going to take off the passanger pegs now?

About the hugger...all the later bikes are drilled for mounting huggers (2004 and on??). It is a simple job with the wheel off, and removing the wheel is not very hard. You just have to swing the lower muffler out of the way. Service manual found on this web site gives instruction.

I paid a bit less then $300 for the MV Corse carbon part from my dealer. Looks and fits like it should. It is listed as an available accesory part by MV....you just need a good parts man at your dealer.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.
