Hi All. Only just found this forum recently, but I've been a massive Yamaha fan for 19 years! Owned FZR600, EXUP RU, YZF750SP, R1, R6 & not to mention the DT50 when I was 16! Current ride below, had it for 5 years with just the Stage 1 de-restrict. 6000 miles. Don't think I'll ever sell this one! Does anyone know where I can get a carbon hugger?..rear shock starting to get a bit marked from stones. :)

There are some who call me........Tim?

awesome, awesome bikes. welcome to the group by the way.

i couldn't find a hugger from any of the normal sources. you might want to try qb carbon in britain, they made quite a bit of stuff for the R7.

Thanks for that, I'll give them a call tomorrow...think that's the same place I bought the carbon chain guard 3 years ago. Otherwise might have to wrap the shock in a bit of old carpet I've got lying around...... ;)

if ya can't locate a hugger, traxxion dynamics here in the states sells a shock protector that might interest you:

not a big fan of traxxion (gave me a bunch of attitude one time) but it's a pretty cheap route to go.

No luck with QB Carbon. They've never made a hugger for the R7 although they said they have seen bikes with them fitted, so someone must make them but they don't know who! They made a hugger for their special edition R71, but that used a standard R1 swingarm so no good I'm afraid. :cry:

I'll keep looking but will go down the traxxion shock sock route for the time being...just need to remember to take it off when I park up! :oops:

I think Harris use to make one? but I could be wrong.

I'm in the same spot as you. I'm looking for a carbon hugger also.

Have emailed Harris but have not received a response. Saw a hugger on Flea Bay the other day from Harris but for a race kit R7 swingarm which has different mounting points, so no good unfortunately :cry:

I'll keep looking... :)
