Yep, eMotoUK or MV Corse. I have the eMoto hugger and love it. Naturally the MV Corse will cost more. However, if you buy from that dealership where we get that discount, you should be able to save 10% or more. I forget where the heck that thread is, however.

I am going to get the emoto one. I like the "old style" one better than the one they show as new though. Anyone have a pic of the new style one on a bike?

Surprisingly, you don't get hardly any muck on the shock.

<-----rain or shine.

I've ridden it in the rain a dozen times...the shock is still clean. The swingarm design somehow works at keeping most the crap off.

Now, if you do a fender eliminator...be prepared to have one wet and dirty back/helmet....that rear fender...I miss it when it rains, lol.

Go for the MV Corse style (tamburini style) Hugger, also available through Emoto. Mounts inside swingarm, between tyre with nothing resting on top of swingarm. In my opinion looks much better, does not detract due to being more minimalist. I have the MV Corse one fitted, sorry no pics at the moment, but it looks great.

Didn't think they did anything. Otherwise, they woulda added it...you're right though, it doesn't do anything, but they look nice!

That's the main reason I haven't gotten one, as well, it really doesn't do anything...maybe when I have some money burning a hole in my pocket.....I'll get one...

^^ Exactly...I just don't see the need for one other than aesthetics, if it's not doing anything...if my rear end got dirty, sure, but it doesn't do anything. I rode through some nasty shit, and my back had crap on it, but the shock and swingarm, were still clean...

I have $300 I could spend my money better on (like a powercommander). Especially since it's "adding weight"....:laughing:

Before I got the hugger I had a ton of crap build up around the suspension. I don't have that now. I only added it at the first service (if it was recommended to me when I bought it, I would have added it then).

The sticky tires pull a fair amount of crud up onto the swingarm and suspension area. While I don't think that will necessarily ruin the suspension, it can't help it.

I don't have a specific pic of it on the bike, it sorta appears in a couple, but not the whole thing. Anyway, it is more minimalist than the other one posted. You can find it on the mv corse pages without too much trouble.

in short, i think it helps. and it looks nice.
