    Hugger
    « on: 2016-02-14 22:46:35 »
     Does anyone know if a Hugger exists anywhere for these bikes? And if so where.


    Have checked all the main suppliers of after market parts with no joy.

        I have not seen a hugger on any K1600 or even heard of one for our bike.
        Guess there is not much demand for it.

          From my experience with other bikes (Fireblades, VFR1200, GSA etc.),the huggers are practically useless anyway.  Just one more part to wash/clean if you've been out in the rain  ;)

              Looks like it, Jim.  ;)  I tried MV-Motorrad and Powerbronze websites but nothing on there about huggers for the K16.  You'll just have to avoid the puddles!

                  I bought a rubber mudflap off Ebay and just mounted it to the bottom of the mudguard and that does help keep dirt and crap off the rear shock.

                    Thanks guys. Only reason I wanted one was to keep crap from the rear shock as the design has a cut away on the OEM flap alowing crap through to the shock. Will look at making a home made one once the weather improves, bike not being used at the moment.

                      Can you keeps us all updated? I'm interested to see what can be done for mine.
