    95 rear hugger

    After someone finds a 2005 hugger for Slopoke, tell me where you can find one that doesn't look like a barn door for a 95!

    I've got a cool hugger and tag bracket for my SV, but have had little luck for 95VFR.

    rear hugger

    I purchased the pyramid hugger from Dynohumm. It is a quality product and would recommend it.

    Does the rear brake line attach to it like it does to the stock chain guard? If not, then what did you do with the brake line? Any pictures?

    I purchased one from Red-Fox.com for my '03. They show one for the '05.
    the One I bought bolts over the brake lines on the swingarm using two of the existing holes. It also uses a zip-tie (wire tie, plastic strap, whatever) to attach the front of the huger to the arm.
    It took me longer to remove the protective plastic than it took to install.

    I also bought a hugger from these guys. Very quick delivery, (they're in the U.K. & I'm in Australia.) Haven't fitted it yet, hopefully that will happen next week.

    There are plenty of rear huggers available in San Francisco for 20 dollars. Or so I've heard.

    Contact user RIVCYKO. I know he was making custom huggers for a while last year and they looked really sharp. He is more active on VFRD forums than he is here. He was making them in different colors and I saw a blue one on a RWB Anniversary Edition not long ago and it looked really sharp.

    I've got a carbon fiber Harris hugger that works very well. Got it through a group buy from the VFR e-mail list about 6 years ago.

    Todes69,

    I just ordered the same hugger you did and I was wondering how long it took for it to get to you. Did you order it from SIDE?
