double sided tape is a much better option than drilling holes. Imo it is dangerous to ride a bike with a drilled swingarm or frame.

3M company actually makes some industrial double sided tape that sticks like the part is welded on.

i bought the carbon version of this hugger. it had holes to drill, but i just used the 3M strong double sided tape and it holds pretty solid. As for the quality, it is absolute garbage! i have a feeling they looked at the bike for a few minutes then decided to make it in the dark based on memory. If you have the money buy a better one to avoid stretching/cracking it to make it fit. garbage. also i bought the carbon version for cheaper too i think.

Yeah, I bought one. Drilled the holes. Didn't fit at all!!! I sent it back and got a refund. Buy a Puig. I just ordered one. Defiantly worth the money. Like they say, you get what you pay for!

Will do!

I think I'll hold off until I get a Powerbronze, Puig is just a little too bling bling for me.

Thanks everyone!

I have one too. If you want a show type street bike dont buy it. It looks OK from 10ft, but its not prefect.

The mounting is my only complaint, but I didn't care that much since my bike is only a race bike and only needs to look for from 50ft @ 100mph.

Yeah this company products are not as described. I also brought this same hugger for my bike and was told to drill holes in swingarm which i didn't do and returned product for a full refund no problem. Sorry my advice do not buy.
