pyramid hugger fitting to 02 FZS600
« on: 28 March 2012, 12:43:49 PM »
Hi all,
I have just ordered a rear hugger from Pyramid but I am having to have it delivered to my work place.
I'm wondering if anyone has fitted one of these and if its an easy job? i.e in a lunch break at work with minimal tools?
or is it likely to need the wheel removed and re-aligned and risk to much going wrong for a lunchtime tinker?
 
Also since ordering it i have seen a few people with thou's that were not happy with the fit, anyone had good or bad experiance with the pyramid fit on the '02 600's?
 
many thanks

keno

Take the old chainguard off and you will usually need a 10mm spanner & a allen key to put hugger on 30 mins tops, no need to remove wheel or anything..

I got one for mine off Electronic-B, as per other answer to fit just need to unbolt the brake pipe where it bolts to the swingarm as it's got a bracket that side too so's well secure, well made and works very well tho' big stones stuck in the tyre tread might make a scrapping noise if you drive it over gravel  :)  Is an ace mod.

yeah Im really pleased with it  :D :D :D
I ordered it direct from pyramid with a fenda extenda too on tuesday and it was delivered yesterday.
yep it was a piece of cake to fit, as said 3 bolts to remove chain guard and 1 bolt for the brake hose guide.
it came supplied with new stainless mounting kit and everything aligned perfect.
i agree it definately gives the bike a "bigger" look

Looks good I just cant decide on the Pyramid or the the Powerbronze hugger

Anyone know why the 02-03 parts are different ? did they change?
Only the 02-03 is available in carbon fibre look but not the 01 (which is what year mine is)

apparently its the spacing and position of the holes for the chain guard that changed, not really sure why??

I think they changed for it being the same measurement than the 1000. The 98 ones have a longer distance between holes. Is the 2002 chainguard made of awful rubber that become twisted like the '98?

I am waiting for my new steel one to be delivered too. I keep throwing more and more money to the bike just for appareance. It is like being married to some kind of harlot.

What's the tie-wrap on the swingarm for?  Scotoiler?

no the 2002 chain guard was fairly durable plastic, could still flex a lot but there wasnt any signs of mine twisting at all.

I know what you mean about throwing time and money at it thou, im trying to keep mine pretty standard but am adding bits that will help preserve the bike, as i ride all year round and its kept outside under a bike cover so I really have to try and stay on top of keeping it clean and protected
my next want is stainless radiator cover.
 
yeah the tie wrap is for  the scotoiler, ive got the tourer type mounted behind the No-plate, there were 2 ties last week looks like ive lost one over the weekend....... was going to replace them anyway they get pretty grubby and the nylon does breakdown with UV

But worse, we have ebay auctions and second hand cheap things, so we keep wasting time also to save some of the money. For the chainguard, first I lost a bidding at the last second then I offered less than half of the money the seller asked for another one and he accepted, I wasted a lot of time looking for the chainguard until then.

do you mean the countersunk washers that fix the hugger? if so they are available from pro-bolt, http://www.pro-bolt.com/index.php/stainless-steel/stainless-steel-bolts-and-washers-countersunk/stainless-steel-countersunk-washer-m6-x-22mm-o-d.html
 
although with some searching around you can probably find them cheaper.
