No comments on Fastbits, but I fitted a PowerBronze hugger and it works very well for a lot less money. Happy riding!

Thanks for the info, I did look at the Powerbronze hugger but the best price I could find for. 15 to 18 bike was £101

I too fitted the Honda one.

Not very big, but well made and a good fit too

Thanks for all the advice guys, I would normally go for the manufacturers design but I don't quite get why Honda are selling it as an accessory and not fitting it as standard, unless they only think its required for off road use.
The Powerbronze unit seems to be most popular so I think that's my preferred option.
I've only had the bike a few weeks and only used it on roads but there is a significant amount of dirt thrown over the shock so even if its not an engineering essential it makes the bike look crap without it.

Don't forget your Powerbronze discount.

If you are getting crap on the rear shock, check that you have the rubber flap still attached to the base of the rear subframe. Mine provides significant protection with or without the rear hugger.
