The same unit that Projektd sells is available direct from the manufacturer at https://www.pyramid-plastics.co.uk/accessory.html?accessoryCode=651

There's also a comparable unit made with carbon fiber from Skidmarx.  Search 'Skidmarx GTR1400 hugger' on Google and it'll be the first result.

A little cheaper than Projekt-D but still $73 shipping. I find that to be ridiculous.

Ok, I called David. (I've been waiting to see if more express an interest in buying an Inner Fender}

David is no longer in the business of Motorcycle parts.
But he still has a connection in England and is willing to try to work something out for a group buy.
   {The biggest problem here is the shipping costs from England to USA}

He's currently checking prices to see what the cost would be to him.

If we can get 5 - 10 that want in on a group buy, he'll have them all sent to him as a batch (to save shipping costs) and offer them to us at the best price he can. {Plus shipping to your door}
I'll get that cost from him in a few days, and post it here..

So, the question is; Who wants an inner fender??
For now,,, Do not contact him.
  I'll co-ordinate the list from this site. (If we can get the 5-10 folks, I'll give everyone info on how/when to contact him).

Ride safe, Ted

The timing doesn't work for this buy, but since I frequently fly between the US and Germany if enough people (2 or more) want something I"m amenable to being used as a pack animal :D . But please don't ask for a complete motorcycle, just pieces. :) . I'll try to remember and post ahead of time for upcoming trips.

Ted, sign me up. I'd prefer a Carbon Fiber one, but would settle for the Plastic or Fiberglass it that was all that was offered.

Also.... this does depend on the total cost.

Thanks Sam. That appears to be the same one I have on my bike.
                 I think %94 is about $145?? (plus shipping)

Pope/Staylo, thanks for replying. I'll post info here as I get it.
NOTE: During the last group buy (in 2014) list price for the fiberglass was $170 and the Carbon Fiber was $270. {plus shipping from Eu}    :-\

I think David was able to get the fiberglass for us at about $150. (total)
We'll see what he can do for us soon...

Does the stock rear fender stay on, and this inner "hugger" fender go on in addition to protect the rear shock area?

Yes, that's correct. You can see photos of this on sites such as ProjektD.

Yes, the stock fender/etc. stays on.
The hugger comes with all hardware to install onto the swingarm.
Not the easiest installation to get it straight, but do-able.

I just talked to David again. Told him we already had 5-6 that want in.
He said the manufacturer isn't helping him much. {as he no longer sells motorcycle parts}
But David agreed to try again, and see if he can talk them into a good price.

NOTE: He's going out of his way to try to help us. Good guy!

He offered a name of a company that also might have Huggers in the USA.
Said it was the Superbike Store in Anarbor Michigan. (sp??)

If someone will {please} get me info on how to contact them, I'll try contacting them.

Ride safe, Ted

I just called the number on their website 734-996-0135 and the gent who answered said he has no inner fender for the C14 specifically and has no idea of a US supplier, be it ProjektD or otherwise.

Sam, I found the hugger on their website.
    https://www.skidmarx.co.uk/kawasaki/kawasaki-gtr1400-2007-rear-hugger-grp.html

Will try to figure out how to talk them into a group buy.

At the very least, the European companies should discount the VAT (VAT is not paid when delivery is outside of Europe).  I believe the current European VAT is 20%.   :beerchug:

As a follow up to my post, I too have the skidmarx brand hugger. I wasn't able to find my receipt where I bought it, but I could have sworn I got it from a US based dealer of their products. I Will keep looking.




I have 10,000 miles on the bike now and the hugger has not budged or caused me any issues.  Rear tire comes off without taking it off, too.
