It took me just about one to get this hugger installed on my 620. Hopefully you can do it in about of that time.

The story on March 15 of 2008, when I the official Ducati carbon hugger for the Multistrada 620 from the dealer. They charged my card for the $272.00 at that

I figured it would take a month or so to get it shipped over Italy. But a month turned two, then three, four. I could have the order, but it started to get, interesting, ridiculous and silly.

So I I’d hang in there to see how it really would take and report back to you, our readers.

Back and forth it — and don’t forget still had my $272.00. After email traffic between me and the from the dealer to Ducati America and from Ducati America to Italy, we finally got that the part would It was now December of 2008, 9 months the order was placed.

I got the call on New Year’s Eve, and down today to pick it up. The guy brought the box out from the back and I right away that wasn’t going to be pretty the box was badly beat up and one side had crushed.

He opened it up and there it a carbon fiber hugger no packing around it, no protective — nothing. Just a of carbon fiber, rattling in a big box.

It had about a 3 crack the middle and it was pretty ragged and it like hell. This was the worst piece of carbon I’ve ever seen like it was made in somebody’s a first try at making carbon

It had loose fibers all over, a finish with no clearcoat, fractures all over, sharp bits of the mold and mold sticking out. Ducati be ashamed of themselves. This have never gotten out of the of whomever made it, much shipped to a paying customer.

So at this point, I threw in the and got my money back. Apparently, I am the guy in the world who actually ordered the Ducati Performance Parts fiber hugger for the rare and rarer Multistrada 620, and must have fabricated hugger in Uncle Louie’s fiber works and shoe-shine

Based on this experience, my is to forget Ducati for these of parts — they let me down on this one. It me very much of the Ducati of old and not you’d expect from a class company in 2009.

What next? I wanted a hugger. The Multistrada 620 I assume, other flavors of the needs one badly.

The bare rear tire up all sorts of dirt, mud, and debris over the monoshock and else under the bike.

So I did a bit of and learned that some 620 owners had adapted a plastic that was originally designed for the for use on the Multistrada. Why didn’t I know this earlier? I guess I had enamored with the idea of a real carbon fiber made by Ducati specifically for the

The Monster hugger is for the 620 Monster and called a rear mudguard, part number 56510301A. The I was quoted at the dealer was a very $43.80!

The part arrived a few days later in good It’s made from type of plastic or ABS and although it could be painted, as I did with the on the GT1000, the Monster mudguard has a chain guard (which owners do not like).

This gives it a more shape than the GT1000 so I figured I’d leave it in the black state rather try to mess with all those corners.

Dirt and crud in of the tire without the mud guard Front right bolt (R) doesn’t need to be secured.

The mud guard fits almost to the bolt holes on the left front and rear of the Multistrada 620 but the Monster hugger also has a in the right front and right that have no matching on the Multistrada 620.

Some have drilled the extra two in the swingarm on their MTS620, but I really want to do that. Or at I wanted to see if I could make it first as a sort of trial and to sure I knew exactly the holes should be drilled if I to go that route.

So I bolted the side front and rear and that the hugger fits tight without the extra It fits so tightly that for the extra bolt on the right-hand at the front didn’t seem at all, but to line the hugger up over the tire, I’d to do something about the right-hand in the rear to pull the plastic a bit and get the top of the hugger to line up correctly the tire.

Again, I didn’t want to the swingarm, more out of laziness anything else. So I cleaned off the of the tab on the hugger with some alcohol, then put a piece of tape on it. I pulled the hugger until everything looked (looking at the tire and hugger the rear of the bike to make they were lined up) and I stuck the tab with the tape on to the swingarm.

I then used a cable tie around the swingarm to the hugger in place.

So far, it’s been fine. The only issue be one of style — the cable tie isn’t as clean or professional-looking as a done bolt hole. But it for me, no one has noticed and the entire installation only a few minutes.

Here’s how it
