    Rear Hugger

     My Powerbronze Rear Hugger disappeared out of the back wheel out riding leaving just the bracket arm intact.
    I am therefore reluctant to fit another Powerbronze and the only other I can see is a Puig Hugger for the Explorer/Tiger, has anyone fitted this?It has the same shaft drive so should fit.

    Interesting, so not just me

    Mine was removed at dealership this year.  I was in for rear caliper rebuild and it was deemed unsafe.  I had painted it twice over its lifetime of 6 years but that obviously did not control the rust.

    Considering ordering another, decisions decisions.

    It's a simple decision for me. The Powerbronze is not fit for use and a potential danger.

    I have also been looking at some form of protection for the rear end. Does the PB hugger actually work, as I had one on my Sprint and it was a waste of money.

    I have made by my selve of stainless steel.
    Works perfect, mounted 4 years ago no problem.
    Sometime, I think,  I shout paint it black.

    I made a flexible rubber mudflap to protect the rear shock, wasn't that impressed with the huggers that are available.

    I didn't even know a hugger was made for the Trophy. Started looking around and it seems there have been documented issues with the PB hugger:

    I installed a hugger on my Sprint, but mostly because I heavily modified the rear fender (and it also gave it a sportier look). What's the purpose of installing one on the Trophy, extra protection for the shock?

    What did you fix it to. I was looking at fixing something to the radio box.
