Hey, I watched your videos when they came out, I was wondering if it's someone from forum
The grill video will be useful as I have Evotech grill on the way.
Looking forward to more videos.

Great videos! I subscribed.
I really like how the aftermarket/ customization for this bike is picking up!
Keep up the videos!

Hey, did you make your holes bigger to slide it further back a bit, or did you make additional holes behind the original ones ?
Mine is almost touching tires, the little hairs on tires are touching the hugger

i had to re drill new holes, i had the same problem when i got mine also that it was touching the tire.i installed the bracket but left the scoop not attached so i can re-position it to make the new holes. once i found a good position i marked the holes and reattached it.

Yup, had to drill new holes slightly behind the original ones.
Now I'm trying to figure out how to install swingarm spools, since not it's not a flush mount point anymore.
Great looking hugger, but it makes you work for it

What kind of hugger did you buy? I wanted to get the motomachine one but was wondering about how it might work with the T-rex lowering links.
