drilling swing arm question

has anyone drilled the holes for the rear fender into the swing arm? Or is there another fender out there that doesnt require the drilling?

I have. You may need to center punch the hole so the drill bit doesn't walk.

Thumbs up Indeed

I have too and have put thread inserts in the holes to avoid using those stupid rubber grommets. Just make sure that this is definitely the mudguard you want to use.

MV Corse hugger instructions include direction on drilling holes in early models. Not so difficult.

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

Hugger Holes

here's some pics of my '08 910R, with pre drilled holes, plugs in and out that i assume will be the holes used to attach the hugger i have on the way.
Can anyone confirm this?

That is the right holes Mate. Should fit any of the huggers being sold out there.

Cheers Donsy, they looked well enough spaced for them to be the right ones. Have a great weekend!

Mine is chromed and don't have any holes on the swing arm, any other ways to mount the rear hugger? Any hugger out there which does not require drilling holes?
