I've tried searching these forums but all I get is a 'No Results' message so I guess that something is broken.

I'm getting a new R1200R later this year and not sure whether a Puig hugger or a Mud Sling would be a better choice to keep the rear clean and protect the shock. What's the consensus on this?

Thanks

David

Mudsling

Have the mudsling and i really like it. Keeps the crud off shock and back portion of trans and battery, etc. Looks as if it came with the bike.

I've got a Mudslinger on my 2011 GSA and it's been great. When I get my 1200R it's one of the first things I'll add.

Do you really need this if you ride with side bags?

Well, for me, Yes. I got ESA and it protects the shock very well. Keeps tire spray from getting up in the battery area. If it rains hard & long, tire spray gets your and passenger's feet wet, with or without side bags. IMO

There's a third, and in my opinion, best option; the ilmberger carbon fiber hugger. Looks great, works great, especially if you have an r12r classic, all black or all white bike. Keeps splash off shock, above the rear tire and passenger.

Right, but what really, does it do? Should I care if there is mud on my shock?

Yes, mud on the shock will wear out the shock's seals as the shock goes in and out. You will need to replace the shock before it would otherwise need to be replaced. Of course , the bike will also look nicer if it isn't full of road crud and the back of your leg won't be crudded up when you ride on wet roads.

Yeah. +1 las comments. BMW should have fitted a plastic inner fender there to begin with. (Ilmberger genuine carbon fiber hugger is SEXY!)

+1 on this deal. I just received mine. $97 and no shipping charge. Easy to install. Fit just right. Still overpriced. Looks like it will do a good job protecting the ESA module and shock on my 12R Classic
