PostSubject: The rear hugger.   Fri Mar 21, 2014 12:12 pm

Hey guys, I've had the Skidmarx on my 09 and currently on the wife's 07.
I want to get a new one a customized it but for the life of me, I cannot remember where I purchased it from. Rolling Eyes 
I search my e-mails through 2010 but can't find an invoice/confirmation notice. Damn it!
So anyway, where's the best place to get it from in the US?
Too much Belgian brusky lately...

I want to get one too.
Have you looked on the guzzitech forum?
That seems to be a fairly technical forum.

This place vends the Skidmarx Also Stucchi Luigi and Agostini make versions that mount via a clamp on the Reaction Rod, and Pyramid Plastics makes a version very similar to the OP.

For the Stelvio I use this, that protects the shock 100%. I think there are now more then 100 Stelvio running like this, even tested in the dessert, next to your Huggers, and the verdickt was this works much better then a hugger. I don't see why this shouldn't fit on a GRiSO. Same airbox. The rubber is between airbox and inner mudgard.

Recently installed a skidmarks I got from Beetle, only thing I don't like is its a big resonator for drive line noise something I never even noticed I had before I installed it, will look at adding a rubber plate on the swing arm mounted side to hopefully isolate it from vibes a bit...... Maybe I just need a slightly noisier pipe..

I did a similar thing with my Versys [ created a shaped rubber mudflap that was attached to the bottom of the battery holder with a couple of small nuts/bolts] For the Versys it protected the rectifier as well as the shock. Did a great job!

I installed the carbon fiber hugger from AF1 in Texas. It's light well made and complements the carbon on the Mistral. Now I want a carbon front fender.

That looks good with the match to the mistral!

The Skidmarxs ones here are about £85/95 new. I found one going used on ebay and bid and got it for £35. It was missing the fixing kit - rang Skidmarx and got that sent and postage for £10. The hugger was described as having slight storage marks. Got it and cannot find anything wrong with it. Will see how it fairs. For what I have paid, I will not worry about it getting trashed but at least it will protect the shock. Plan B will be another homemade and shaped rubber flap like posted earlier in the thread.

I use a shock bag, works great and covers the whole shock.

I like the mudflap idea. Who sells those? I suppose it wouldn't be too hard to make one.

Well with first stelvio, it was getting fixing screws out of top airbox, pull the airbox 1/2 inch up, push the rubber in between, and mount the screws again to fix the airbox. It stayed there until I put in the new model airbox, that left more room, then I did the same, but first put some silicone sealant on the rubber.
I've seen people screwing it because they didn't trust it, but there is no need for that.

I use a mudflap and it work quite well. Ensure you mount it properly using good quality stainless steel fixings (don't buy the cheapies at your discount hardware store) or they will most likely rust - proving that they are, in fact, not a quality stainless steel product.

I use a strip of stainless steel sheet on the outside to ensure it all sits flat.
