Need a bigger rear hugger
« on: February 02, 2017, 10:30:57 AM »
What rear hugger are folks using as I've got the standard and it's useless. Didn't notice it last winter but this year after every trip I'm covered in crap all up my back to the base of my helmet.
Really like to hear others experiences.

£83, not cheap but cheaper than a lot of the alternatives out there.

Have you remove the huge rear numberplate support bit as I assumed that's what keeps the crap down and not the hugger

No and I'm pretty sure it would make it worse I actually want the crap to stay down, at the moment it's all up my back the base of my helmet and the pillion seat. This time of year I wash the bike after every ride as our roads are covered in salt or mud but this year is the worst I've ever seen.
Hence the need for a longer hugger.

Strange! Mine is totally standard. I don't get any 'crap' escaping the mudguard. Certainly never had any reach my clothing, or above the seat .
I'm riding all the time.
