Rear Hugger for K1200S "07"

Looking around for a rear hugger for my bike that will get here in a few weeks. Some are on ebay but does anyone know where there are cheaper ones than $300+. Used would be even better. Thanks Greg

the only cheap ones are the copies you find on E-bay other than that your going to have to fork up the $$$$ i purchased the real deal paid $390 shipped to the USA. i am not sure how good the copies are but the one i have has a good amount of flex i thought it might rub on the tire but so far so good...

Sorry to get off track here but the small rubber pad that keeps the hugger from rubbing against stabilizer has come off on my hugger. Now when I ride I can here it bounce and hit the stabilizer. Has this happened to anyone else and what do you use to fix it?

noisy hugger

I used those pads you stick to the bottom of a chair leg to keep from scratching wood floors.

It has slid down maybe 1/4 inch, but has stayed and there is no more vibrating carbon on metal noise.

I just picked up a 2006 K1200S. A hugger, that would be nice. I've been looking for those things for all my bikes including front fender extenders. They do help allot on keeping the suspension clean. They use them allot in Europe but here in the States, they just don't put them on very many bikes except sport bikes.

I would like to get a hugger for my ZX14, K12S - that is for sure.

The hugger and the chain guard go together right? I don't like the metal one. Thinking more about carbon fiber. They say it will wear out faster though but isn't that what bikes do if you use them?

So that isn't a problem.

Ebay is that the only place? I know Pyramid Plastics makes fender extenders and huggers, I haven't checked yet about the BMW. I guess I'll check.

yeah the idiots used a solid round rubber and sliced it... best way is get some Silicone Vac tube slit it and apply a small dab of super glue. that was teh first thing i did on mine... bike has 1100miles and it's still rock solid.
