What are the benefits of a Hugger?

Hi All,


I recently acquired a Kawasaki Ninja ZX6R. While I was reading the reviews for this bike, one of the things that they highlighted was that it doesn't come with a hugger. I looked online and found out that I can buy them for around £70 and they look easy enough to fit, but is it worth it?


Cheers,


Kayleigh

I was advised a hugger was good for my Versys due to where the rectifier is positioned. I got one and no crud issues.


I think that bikes tend to be built for drier climates than ours, so there are three standard problems with new bikes sold in the UK


1 - no hugger


2 - the front fender is too short


3 - the side stand foot is too small.


That is fine if your are going to be fair weather only biker, but rubbish if you plan to ride in the wet, even more so on country roads and cannot always park where there is hard tarmac.

Or a hollowed out bus driver? :-D


Seriously tho, you can buy the materials to make one for £2. Neoprene comes on rolls and is about £10 a square meter. Cable ties are 1p each and a eyelet tool is a fiver.


I think I'm going to have to do a batch huh? Is that allowed on here if I do it profit free?
