How to stop your rear shock spring going rusty
« on: February 12, 2024, 06:42:20 pm »
At it again  ;D

To prevent the spray from the rear tyre causing issues rusting my rear spring I came up with a cunning plan. I removed the hugger and fitted a mud flap. When I bought the hugger I thought it would stop it but it falls short. Tell me what you think it was a £6 fix



Also I fitted the bung on the hugger (on the left) that stops the hugger from vibrating from eBay you get several in a pack ££7.75

Nice work. A couple of inches longer and it might also stop the 5#/+€ from attacking the dog-bone linkages. Hard to tell without getting out and getting under.
