Well I finally got around to fitting the Wunderlich hugger.
Instructions were clear, everything you need to fit it is included.
The fact it uses the original BMW chain guard is a bonus IMO.
You can remove the chain guard for cleaning and maintenance without disturbing the rear hugger.

It fitted first time with no need for any sort of adjustment, and while it is not the cheapest out there, it is certainly worth the money.

This is the first bike I have used Wunderlich for parts and accessories and so far have been very impressed with all their stuff.

Doebag, have you tried this out in anger yet?

Also i note you leave the shock protector on, have you had any issues with that set up?

Thanks, as I to are looking at getting one before the price hikes due to possible import tax adding to EU parts!!

Mark, I've done a couple of hundred miles so far with no problems.
I took the rubber flap off as it serves no purpose with the hugger fitted.
I think if you wanted to retain the flap it might need cutting down as it looks like it might put too much pressure on the two plastic pins that fix it to the under tray.

Being able to remove the chain guard without the hugger being disturbed is a very good thing IMO

Well first ride in really crappy weather since I put the hugger on. Bike was filthy and the lower shock mount was a bit manky.
I may put the rubber flap back on but think it will need shortening/shaping to clear the hugger properly.

Mine looks the same as that without a hugger after a ride on winter roads, except the flap is still there, so the shock is largely clean  :046:

Fitting mine tonight but will leave the flap on at first.

The rear footpegs look cleaner than normal from what I can see, but at the moment the roads are so bad I doubt anything would keep the bikes clean.
