There are quite a few options out there when it comes to a hugger for the 250. I'm sure somebody could post up a list: ahem, DELTA, ahem. I decided to go with Scott's hugger. It was the cheapest, the fastest install and the least intrusive when it comes to extraneous covers fitting over the chain guard.

If you're interested in this hugger, please email Scott at [email protected]

Build? Excellent! The guy builds kit planes for a living for goodness sake! Not sure if this is made out of fiberglass or carbon fiber. Doesn't matter to me. It's solid, beautifully painted and a proper professional job. Mine cost me something like $135 shipped. Red is a 2-tone color, which more paint cost, which means slightly more expensive. Scott is a rate A guy and has a very quick turn-around for making these are 1-offs. This is a side project, which is why it's all done through email. If you wanna look at his planes, go here: Velocity Aircraft

Hugger arrived well packed:


Instructions, alcohol wipe, and shim are also in the box:


First remove left passenger pegs:


Next remove FRONT chain guard mounting bolt:


mmmm, dirty swing arm and mounting area. Not cool. Get in thar with some alcohol, brake cleaner, water and soap, or whatever you got. Get 'er squeaky clean!


Ah, much cleaner on the surfaces that matter:


Test fit:


Peel back the tap and wiggle it in place, add plenty of pressure, then put the chain guard bolt back where it belongs. I think the little gasket type shim that came with is supposed to go in between the hugger and chain guard but I ended up not using it at all.


Installed:


Please ignore the droopy turn signals, they will be eliminated soon enough... Refer here if you don't know what's going on with that: http://www.newninja.com/forums/f98/...ys-take-on-flush-mount-turn-signals-5683.html
