Pyramid CF Hugger

Had a pm asking for pics of my Pyramid carbon fiber rear hugger, thought I'd post some for all to check out...







Hugger came with new hardware and I found that the right side front bolt supplied was too short to thread in. I drilled both right sold mounting holes slightly larger and used the original bolts instead. Still need to come up a brake line bracket, the one that came with the hugger was worthless.

I could just scuff the edges of my tires with sandpaper

Seriously, I have considered a track day, great little track in the country south of town called Putnam Park that runs bikes occasionally.

My trained eye would pick up on the "scuff" job...

I have heard of Putnam Park, it would be a good environment to sharpen your skills without the dangers involved with street riding.

Now that we have derailed your thread, lets get back on track (no pun intended) [/derail]

It doesn't look like it would come off easily, it's a "hard" decal instead of a stick on. I think you'd have to use some solvent and maybe buff it a bit.

Is it imbedded in the coating?

It's not under the resin, but appears to be painted or baked on?

Chain has been lubed a few times since those pics were taken.
