Not yet - but I'll keep an eye out for reports... Mirrors look good...
Late emerging biker - took the first bike plunge at 50 with a 12GT : swapped for a 13S 9 months in... then got my mitts on a lovely 2014 13R Dynamic in rrrrrracing rrrrred! Then the COVID came along... so I upped it to France and bought a V85TT... O Sole Mio etc etc!

Hugger won't fit the 55 tyre of the 1300s bike.

What sort of spacers will accomodate a larger diameter tyre?

I think it is more a case of the tolerances if the hugger doesn't sit exactly in the mid-line of the tyre. You need a set of those off-set bolts to move it up a tad....



Certainly the ex-importer for Ilmberger confirmed that the 1200 hugger will fit the 1300 depending on tyre make but as soon as the profile changes you'll be stuffed!

Tried getting one for mine when I had my K and gave up. It just sits too close to the tyre for comfort if you have a 55 tyre.

Do you have another name other than baldbiker??  ;)
