Hey Guys,
managed to get my hands on a carbon hugger for the 1090RR.

It only issue is they didn't send and screws.

As near I can figure I need M10 bolts. The pre-drilled holes in the swingarm look like they have not been tapped properly. I can't identify any thread on them.

Could someone give me an indication on what size bolt and thread I should be looking at.

Can't believe they did not come with a hugger as standard

cheers
Rob

The hugger on mine is held using wellnuts. Best done with the wheel removed, but I managed to do mine without removal.

Thanks guys,
Picked up some wellnuts form the local bike store. Not 100% on size. I let the vernier do the measuring. I believe M5 bolt.

Just wondering how to get them in without removing the back wheel. Might let the air out of the tire and see if that gives me enough room to get my hand in there.

cheers

Wrap a ratchet strap around the back tire and crank it down after the air is out.

Rob..some peeps do manage to do the "ship in the bottle" routine when fitting a hugger.
I prefer to take the wheel off...It's good to take the wheel off once in a while ..Gives you a chance to clean and lube the threads..

and oh so much easier to fit your hugger ; )
