Hugger 990r

I have a carbon hugger coming from Evolution Bikes, can anyone give me tips on installation.
I'm wondering if I have to remove the rear wheel to mount it on the 3 rubber plugged holes I can see on the swing arm.
I don't have a big enough socket to take off wheel so maybe the shop might need to do it.
Just spent an age cleaning cow shitfrom rear of bike so hopefully the hugger will cut back on splatter.

I had a carbonworld rear hugger fitted to my brutale, I had to pull the exhaust to mount it easily.

You can get away without removing the rear wheel, but it's very tight and you'll need a good set of tools and nimble fingers.

Why not get the specialist wheel nut tool - they're not mega expensive and it'll come in very useful time after time.

Cheers,

Mike

You're right I need the nut remover, of course then i need a torque wrench powerful enough to go that high.
Once I've paid off my card for latest purchases it goes on shopping list.
