POWERBRONZE HUGGER
« on: May 10, 2015, 10:30:47 pm »
I tried to place an order with powerbronze last week for a hugger to fit a 13 reg TTSE,but the sales guy on the end of the phone told me they no longer supply huggers for TTSE.(only the standard trophy)I was told it was a fitting problem and they think its something to do with the electronic suspension.powerbronze have no plan to rectify this in the near future.could any one tell me if they've been told similar.THANKS
P.S. I phoned the following day to double check and was told the same thing. :440:

In The recent post I put up about fitting the hugger it was to a standard Trophy and not an SE in my case.  :169: I don't know about the other who fitted and contributed to the thread. I'm sure hey will comment later.
It wasn't me !!

Well I fitted one to a '12 TTSE last week...

Apart from the normal "Tweak" to the plot once fitted there has been no problem..

Word of Caution to any who have fitted OR intend to fit a Hugger using the Rear Caliper Mounting Bolts - DO NOT EXCEED 40 Nm on those bolts - Powerbronze for example states the mounting bolts need to be torqued to 68Nm - which is too much..

So says the Service Manager at Performance Triumph, Cheltenham - might have something to do with that, maybe

Latest on hugger,Ordered and fitted no problem all I had to do was bend the part of the bracket that goes over the tyre by 2-3 mm,It seemed a little close when I first fitted it.one thing I did notice was having brought numerous huggers from powerbronze over the years.The quality didn't seem to be there this time. :002:

Are most of you guys happy with this modification?  Did it really make the difference that you hoped it would?  There's nothing more frustrating than putting time, effort, and money into something that just doesn't work as expected.
