Rear Tire Hugger
« on: October 16, 2019, 03:14:02 AM »
Anyone installed the rear tire hugger on a 2019?
Honda does not offer the accessory yet, but their is a maker in Germany that says they have one for the 2019. Anyone know about this part from Germany? The picture they show is not a 2019 because the swing arm and the rear brake lines have be updated on the 2019 model. Attached is the Honda OEM one that will fit earlier models.
Also how about the front fender extender that goes on the bottom of the fender. It helps shield the radiator. :006:

It is possible to do a home made job if you can find an old SUV wheel cover, cut out L & R halves and stick them together.  I made mine to extend below the swing arm to fit between the tire and chain to keep dirt off the chain. The original chain cover  is retained.  The hugger is attached to the swing arm with cable ties and adhesive rubber strip, and is still in place after 5000 km rough riding.
For a front fender extender, you can cut a suitable shape from 1/8" insertion rubber sheet and fix it with double sided tape. Again, still on after 5000 km.  Total cost just a couple of bucks, and a fun day in the workshop away from wife.

It is off my previous bike, KTM 390 duke, and originally cost~$100 on aliexpress. It is intended for light duty only; slow speed scrub bashing on overgrown tracks. However, fitting was not easy as there are no handy mounting points on the frame of the cb500x.
I like it because it cost almost nothing and gave me a challenging workshop project for a few days.
