I have the ridged tapered version. I asked "Scotts870" if he could paint mine to match the frame (passenger peg brackets, for example), and short of powder-coat, it is a very good match.

here's 4 pics.









I like it. Still trying to decide if I should go "Ebony" gloss, like the fairings.

And yes, I like my fender uncircumcised, at least for now.

Props to Scotts870 for a serious-cool aftermarket part!!!
Very very nice. I like the flat black look since everything else down there is flat. Damn, decisions, decisions. FB or CF for me??????

Just got a couple of pics from Scott. From sending a couple of emails back and forth he seems like a real nice guy. I told him that I am planning on buying a set of BT-016's and asked about possible fitment problems. He said he would send me a template to check the width and even offered a no hassle return if it did not fit. Anyways, here are a few more pics for you guys.

Thanks for the thread on the tire hugger. I have also ordered one from Scotts870 and am waiting for it to come in. I got the polished carbon finish. If the product is as good as it looks in the pic's, I'll be real happy with it.

For those of you who have already installed their hugger, What's the verdict? Does it keep the bottom clean? Does it truely look that good?

Thanks,
Mark

Got Mine in last night. I have to say that it is done up well. He does a good job of molding the hugger to match the flow of the bike. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a great hugger at a reasonable price. He was very fast at shipping also. Good guy to work with.

Here are some pics. Sorry that they are so bad, I used my phone to snap them.

Sweet!!! I'm suppose to get my cf one today... but without the ridges. But then again mine was cheaper for being the "old" style .

Here's a pic of how the hugger keeps the suspension clean, which makes it ok in my book...

Did this Scotts870 guy call it quits on the Ninja 250 hugger? I checked his ebay link and he has no items for sale.
