    I would doubt that you can fit the 14 Hugger to a 15 bike as the design of the swingarm changed.

    Try  www.pandpbodyworks.co.uk
    I got my hugger/chainguard from them. It covers more of the wheel/tyre.

    It seems that all the huggers I've seen tend to be a bit on the short side. A friend of mine has Honda's own hugger fitted & he reckons it's not particularly effective. I am also in the market for a hugger & have taken Kenny's suggestion & contacted www.pandpbodyworks.co.uk to see what they can offer. It seems their website lists the 2011-2014 Crossrunner but not the later model. Will see what they say & report back. Thanks Kenny.

    It prevents crap from being flung towards the rear shock which is about the most you really need. The underseat area is plastic-coated so easy to spray and wipe clean. I've had a Powerbronze on mine since before Xmas and ridden through the winter on it and it's done a good job.

    That's not to say even more coverage would be better, it would, but the current one has enough coverage imo.

    Just the negative side of a hugger...

    On my previous bike, a Suzuki GSX650FK8, I had a combined hugger and chainguard.
    I mounted the hugger @ 2600km , and had to replace the chain @ 13000km.
    I'm driving the whole year, storm, rain, cold and warm weather , except when it's white.
    2nd chain, did 23000km , 3rd did 26000km, 4th did even less only 8500km.
    What caused this quick replacement of the chain ? sprockets waren't worn at all.
    Just a lot of links got stuck.

    It was the hugger !  I had a carbonfiber hugger, without anything to shield the chain from water when driving through the rain.  The chainlub was washed out , just like a big shower.

    When I replaced the hugger , now a normal design chainguard in stainless steel, that chain is doing 34000km, and isn't replaced yet...all links can still move.
    And my rear shock... even with hugger it was catching a lot of dirt and sand.
    I don't think a hugger is the perfect solution for this small problem.
    Because when it rains... the rear shock is getting sprayed continue, and stays relative clean.
    Less muck than with a hugger.

     :008:  I like this emoticon !  :419:
    Already over 4000km in 2 months...  :152:
