This hugger is made of carbon fiber and has a beautiful finish. These huggers protect the rear shock absorber unit, silencer, collector, rear sub frame and lower legs | feet of the passenger. Water and dirt cannot be blown freely on the passenger feet and legs as well as penetrate deep into the bikes systems. Especially the rear shock is protected against premature wear. A must for any owner who loves and wants to and protect his/her BMW (and the passenger). The hugger is fastened to the final drive unit via a metal bracket that is bonded directly to the carbon fiber hugger body. Easy to fit, sold with all fitting material needed.

Please Note: This part is the correct version for bikes with ESA suspension. If your bike doesn't have ESA, please order part number 8160979 under the Related Products tab.

Important fitting information : If your bike has saddlebags, you’ll also need to order a bracket kit when installing this hugger. The issue is that the original saddlebag mount brackets on the inboard side are rather massive castings and they may come into contact with the hugger when the suspension is compressed. The bracket kit consists of thinner steel brackets and the hardware needed for installation. Depending on which style bags your bike is outfitted with, please also order the appropriate part number under the Related Products tab:

Ilmberger uses pre-impregnated carbon fibre matrices for the high-quality carbon. The fibre volume is dimensions and the alignment of the individual fibres is defined. The matrix is then laminated bubble-free by hand and coated twice with a protective layer. The added clear varnish layer protects and emphasises the three-dimensional effect of the carbon structure. After hardening in the autoclave, the carbon components satisfy even the highest demands and requirements.

This space age material unfolds its full potential with up to 70% weight decrease compared to the standard part and its weight-specific stiffness. Form follows function here and integrates optimally into the design of the motorcycle. The contours of the machine are incorporated as well as the material and surface texture of neighbouring series components. This carbon component underscores the high-tech claim of your BMW with the unique appeal of real carbon.
