The rear hugger for the BMW R 1150 GS is attached to the vehicle&rsquos brake calliper bracket using the included screws. We selected the length of the rear hugger to not only help keep the motorcycle clean, but the strut will also appreciate the protection from stone chips, dirt and &ldquosandblasting&rdquo. Installing an effective rear hugger will especially improve the life of the strut&rsquos seals and piston rod.
This part is an addition to the original components on the motorcycle and helps to protect the motorcycle. The parts are eighter mounted on original fastening points or glued on the surface with specially delivered glue-strips. Like all of our carbon fibre parts, it was made according to the latest protocols and industry standards and can be considered to encompass all aspects of current 'best of industry' practice. The part is made completely out of pre-preg carbon fibre materials using an autoclave. As with all our carbon parts, we use a clear plastic coating that not only improves the appearance, but also protects the carbon fibre from scratching and has a unique UV resistance.Â
