Try Evolution bike. Maybe its because he's in Italy, but it seems he can get the parts from MV within a week. Three days shipping from Italy once he gets the part. As for mounting, you could probably tap the holes in the swingarm and screw it in directly. I think someone else on the forum has done that.

Mate, all MV parts does not HAVE to come from MV. There are people manufacturing parts which are FAR better quality than the OEM parts, and the site sponsors sell these parts, they also sell parts that are not even manufactured by MV.

You will need Rivnuts crimped into the swing-arm if you already have holes in there, that is what I did.

I agree, I am using the hugger from Evolution Bike. I actually like it better because it does not have the MV logo in the clearcoat.

No mate, those holes are usualy drilled to accept a rubber Well-Nut, depending on where you get the hugger from, it might be included.
If not you can get them from Auto dealer or Fastener dealer, they are rubber tubes with a brass threaded part moulded into them, you poke them into the hole and then as the screw gets tightened they compress and therefore grip inside the swing-arm. The danger is that some people Overtighten them, actualy tearing the rubber and then all falls apart. Because I race my bike and can't take chances, I took Rivet Nuts and crimped them into the holes in the swing-arm.
In most cases it meant going to a one size bigger screw but I did not mind doing that.

No worries, like the nuts for most fairing screen bolts? I'll do that, maybe with some thread lock to stop bolt loosening? Cheers Donsy.
