Carbon hugger?

We don't get a lot of rain here in Colorado but a rear hugger is still something I'd prefer to have - I've looked at the OEM MV model and the white label brand - any advice on which is the best choice? There seems to be about an $80-$100 difference but I'm more interested in quality and fit.

Thanks in advance...

I have the one from Design Corse and the quality is very high. I also have other parts coming from Ade on this forum and that is also very good stuff.

What a beast of a motorcycle!
It growls and rages and flies across the tarmac like a wild animal that has escaped the confinement of a cage and after merely waiting restlessly until the release, will not endure being locked up ever again.

I would Stick with the original parts they seem to be better quality.

I wouldn't necessarily agree with that .
Some MV carbon parts have been poorly fitting

I bought mine from GP, a forum sponsor . Fit great, good quality too. I tossed the well nuts, though. I didn't feel too confident in the well nuts fastening . Installed riv- nuts instead.

I bought a bunch of carbon from Design Corse. I didn't think it was top quality but I was still quite happy with the fit and finish.

Evolution Bike, GP Racing, Design Corse, Motocomposites. All carry carbon fiber, all are high quality (from what I hear), and all are forum sponsors. Take your pick.

Bought mine at Designcorse. Quality is well and it was easy to fit.

Keep in mind that you additionally need 3 of these rubber wellnuts and screws to mount the part.

Oh, you don't need to remove the wheel...
...if you like to swear.

Joking aside, it'll take you 2 minutes to remove it, so remove it.
