I bought a genuine rear hugger from MV a few months ago and have only now decided to fit it, does anyone know the correct fasteners to use?
My lacal dealer didn't even realise you had to drill the swing arm. Any suggestions or tips will be helpfull. Thanks.
You can get several different designs of hugger. Casoli, Qb Carbon both supply Huggers that don't need any drilling of the swing arm and can be fitted in minutes. I've had both types on previous bikes and they were both fine.
There is an MV Corse factory product but you have to drill the swing arm to fit it, the dealer I spoke to said its a job that they don't like doing, but structurally it's OK.
I've been told that newer bikes already have the holes pre drilled and that the Tamburini comes with the hugger fitted.
I have a 04 model with no holes.
You can also usually find several new huggers for sale on ebay from the UK US and Germany.
