Best Hugger
on: March 12, 2016, 03:26:56 PM
After lots of saving and even more searching I finally get my Mk. 2 Crossrunner next weekend which happens to be huggerless (is this a word ?). Any recommendations, the official Honda one looks neat but quite minimal.
It's easier to get more money than it is a day of your life back.

Went for the Powerbronze hugger myself, can't say how effective it is as I havent been out yet with it fitted. The Honda huggers tend to be a bit minalist.

I have the Carbon Fibre Skidmarx hugger.  Very happy with it.  See photos.

Does this one cover the lower shock mounting Steve?

I added some more photos.  They show that quite a bit of crap gets past the hugger.  To be fair, they also show not much reaching the shock. 

Hope that helps.

After much deliberation, actually hardly any, I have ordered the Honda item and a RG shock tube, seemed like a good idea at the time
