Rear hugger
« on: May 24, 2020, 10:37:18 AM »
This might sound odd but please bear with me
I have an aftermarket rear hugger incorporating the chain guard for my 2014 800 base model tiger.
I can fit the chain guard and pass the hugger over the rear wheel but then there is nothing to anchor it down on the offside of the bike. Can I drill a small hole into the top of the swing arm and secure it with a self tapping screw ?
This sounds a bit heath Robinson or am I missing something. BTW there is no fixing hole in the offside of the hugger either
Thanks in advance

Most of them seem to utilise the brake line fittings already on the swingingarm

Yes, Rtwo, I looked at that and it did seem obvious albeit with a slightly longer self tapping screw

They're not self tapping screws -from memory- M5 threaded screws
