    Hugger Alternatives

    Hello All,

    After coming to the conclusion that the PB Hugger product is no good for our bikes, who has come up with an alternative solution to helping the shock and linkage area stay clean?  Homemade is good too, pictures would be great.

    Thanks!

    There certainly seems to be a gap in this market, making something yourself is the only option it would seem.

    Thank you.  I looked at that before but for some reason the photos wouldn't display.  Glad they did this time as it gives me an idea as to what an option could be.

    My bike was finally delivered yesterday - yay! Went on a 30 mile ride today and love the bike so far. In any case, I looked at the rear shock and saw this protective cover on it, circled in blue. Do all of our bikes come with this? Do I need more protection?

    As trophied says, original factory fitment. To your second question, only if you don't intend to clean/wash you bike on a regular basis. Yesterday I rode 1079 kms. [FarRide] and this afternoon I'll give my bike a thorough clean, including rotor bobbins, and check over.  :158:
