Just bought a Triumph pseudo carbon hugger from rsjockey, but i'm unsure on how to mount it. It didn't come with any mountnig hardware, so i'm wondering what kind of stuff is used to mount the hugger to the bike. I've heard i'm gonna have to take off the rear wheel, so i'm gonna have to find a milk carton somewhere to use as a makeshift bike stand. Or maybe i should just break down and buy a swing arm stand...

Pony up and buy the stand. You'll be glad you did.

On the S3 & 'Tona there are tapped holes on the swing arm that are used to secure the hugger. They may be plugged with plastic...err....plugs. You will probably need bolts, but you may be able to use the hardware from your stock chain guard.

btw, Pit Bull stands are tre chiche. /images/icons/wink.gif

Even more so than a nabbed milk carton??

Maybe it is time to cough up the cash for a nice stand... after all I'm closing in on that age when I'm supposed to begin acting respectible and all, perhaps this is the first step...

Yea this is how they get you isn't it?? First the nice swing arm stand, then a house, wife, kids, a dog ,a mortage... a freaking MINI VAN. At this rate i'll be saving for the kids college fund, putting money aside for braces, and doing all kinds of responsible things i find despicable...

There are differents huggers, the offical hugger come with differents bolts, nuts and a big bracket to fix the hugger. Other manufacturers use the same chainguard holes and the hole who are pluged in the other side of the swingarm. But in all the cases you have to remove the rear wheel and need a stand. You can buy one or made it yourself (is very easy, only have to weld a few tubes).

Hey Don't despair it doesn't have to be bad. I too made the choice to become an adult and buy a stand. I also have a nine year old and a wife. I just avoided the minivan and bought the wife a Saab 95 turbo and started collecting motorcycles. Being a big kid aint't that bad.
BTW on the Daytona I did not have to remove the wheel. Is it really necessary on the Sprint?

In the Sprint RS you have to remove the rear wheel, it has double swingarm. It is very easy, but you need a stand. The Daytona and the Sprint ST uses a sigle swingarm, and you put the hugger by the side.
