Mine failed as the others. Would not fit a replacement as extra weld does not fix the problem which I think is vibration snapping the bracket.

Puig make a hugger for the Explorer/Tiger which looks better made but even Puig can say if it will fit the Trophy even though it has the same shaft drive and wheel diameter. Anyone tried a Puig hugger?

Tiger hugger different than Trophy

The Tiger hugger does not fit the Trophy. The bracket is shaped different and the connecting arms do not cone close to aligning with the mount-points (Caliper bolts).

Guess Powerbronze didn't follow up with a recall or produce a better quality product to replace their, apparently, defective product .
Probably because the Trophy is no longer in production but, since they never really followed up this issue, other than replacing the defective product with the same, makes me, personally, not too keen on looking at their other products....just sayin'. :084:

I totally agree with you.

Dare I say it but if you search around the net you'll find comments from other motorcycle owners moaning about the fit and finish of various PB products.

Personally I've never been tempted by their products in the past, I only have first hand experience of this hugger.
