I know alot of hondas that run w/o chain guard since they lose the swing arm screw and just take it all the way off. As for the hugger, as long as you dont have a swivel license bracket that uses it to pivot alot of bikes dont come w huggers...

thank you.

I just dont want anything to happen to my nice little rear rim lol. I will roll with the hugger and chain guard if it means saving my rear rim from any kind of a projectile.

Chain guard is the only one that would worry me; that little piece of plastic/metal may help if that chain ever decided to get stupid. Or if you really over grease it hehehehe

doesn't come w a hugger.

think of the busas... they don't either... I see the wheel spinning foreard to the hugger, so anything on the tire will get caught by the hugger if it is that big... but other then a drafting problem of sucking excessive air down w the tire spinning(in all honestly, come on...) I don't see a need for the hugger other then cleaning up the look of the rear end since the rear frame sits so much higher and it fills in the open spot around the trailing arm.

Do you ever ride with loose pants/jeans? Sit on the bike and see how close the chain is to your leg....

other than that it just keeps lube from flying around, altho the stock metal ones do add some protection from a broken chain.

Naz, don't ditch the hugger, get a nice gp style carbon one. Take the chain guard off and get a fancy/smancy shark guard. You won't need a topside chain guard unless you're running Texas Mile (or equivalent and that case it's supposed to be metal).
