Hey Bruce wheren't you working on some sort of hugger project. I thought you were gonna make your own cause I was gonna hold off and see how yours turned out.
That was before a little red Honda found it's way into my garage. The hugger project is on hold until after the racing prep is done. I may just end up buying one in the end. I'm hoping that OPP will get a new supplier with a better design. Apparently the previous design was prone to being cracked by the shock reservoir during extreme travel.

Thanks for the link Lloyd. I sent them an Email asking for prices and availability on the carbon models. And Ryan, I also asked if we could share the shipping if we order at the same time. Every little bit counts.

Just got this from the guy at dynamohumm.

The carbon huggers run $250-$300 CAD (aprox $160-$200 USD).Carbon "look"
about $50 cheaper.Also available in colours.
Two huggers ship for the price of one.

That's a crime to charge that much for a piece of plastic!! Shame on them!! I'm going to go without a hugger unless I can get one for $100 tops. Damn thieves.:1up
But, but......but...................... but it's CARBON FIBER man. You know........ Black Gold


Yah, that' pretty much how I feel too but then I stop to consider how long it would take me to make up a mold and make my own and then the price doesn't seem so bad after all.

You've forgotten the basic precept of supply and demand. The one that says "Rip 'em Off GOOOOOOOD".............

That is why I went with Red Fox. It is by far the most reasonably priced hugger available, and they look great. They are still making a tidy profit no doubt, but I do not mind the $135ish compared to the over $200 it would cost for other huggers.
Did you get your's shipped direct from Jolly Ol' England or is there a domestic supplier?
