    Just fitted this Puig Hugger for the GT on the ST.
    Quite a bit of f***ing about to actually get it to fit, and fit well, but worth it I think.
    Thank god I have a workshop and machines I can make bits with, would have been even more of a pain without it.

    And that’s why everyone don’t have one. It certainly was not a plug and play.

    Went straight on to my GT.
    Other than a fiddle to fit the swinging arm bolt (changed for a hex head screw), fitting was no problem

    That's because it's made for a GT, not an ST
    It's a LOT of fettling to get it to fit. I had to make a new stepped washer with an eccentric hole (offset 4.25mm if anyone needs to know..), re-machine 2 mounting holes, and make a reinforcing bracket out of 3mm thick spring steel. As I said, lucky I have a workshop (machine shop) to make the bits in.
    I do think it's the best of the available huggers though, looks OEM on the ST & the GT

    So what does the hugger actually do for your ST?

    It's like a secondary mudguard. Keeps water/stones/debris/dirt from being flung up against the fuel tank and the shock.
    We get a lot of rain over here and debris washed on to the road by the rain, and the back tyre does pick stuff up and fling it against the underside of the tank and elsewhere.
    This will help minimise that.

    Nice addon.
    Would you mind selling a fitting kit? How much would it cost?

    No, just like doing bits for myself now.
    You can everything you need with a hacksaw, a drill, a couple of files, and some patience. Just take your time, others have done using just those things.

    OK, I thought it was more complicated than that. 🙂

    I fitted a rear hugger to my GT and I'm still surprised how much still gets past it especially this time of year in the UK. Would love something like this that appears to be original on the Ducati SS



    I like the way it wraps around the wheel.

    I think as much as they can stop stop debris getting thrown up, they probably cause areas of low pressure and vortexes causing the same mud, water, crud to be thrown all over the place.

    The main place I see that gets coated is the inside of the exhaust, link pipe & swingarm that sit directly in front of the rear wheel. The spray up the rear of the bike is inevitable and will only be prevented with either the standard rear plough, or a rear wheel guard like on a GS or Multistrada. I'm more tempted to try something like that if I can figure out a way to fit it.
