As Iceman said, I did reverse the bolt and nut arrangement and even with that I got a scar on my new rear tire!
I've been reading this post debating whether to mention I'm taking my hugger off my bike. Don't misunderstand, if the hugger doesn't rub anything or hit when going over bumps, then I love it. Keeps everything back there nice and clean.
I mentioned this in a previous post, but worth repeating. Since I got my new tires (Metzler Sportex M3), the hugger has given me problems. I think the new tires have a higher, rounder profile and therefore "hit" the hugger. I had to bend the frame up in order to avoid more scrapping. Then I noticed the hugger itself was hitting on the left side near the rear footpeg protection bracket.
Maybe I ride very bad roads! (Glad I just got a cheap dirtbike.)
Too bad because I loved the function of it. But on the positive side, I seem to be the only one here that's had any problem.
Good luck with yours.
