I don't want to drill into my swingarm either, so there aren't many choices for huggers. I think NWS makes one of the few. PUIG also makes one.

I'm going to take a wild guess that you have this style of hugger pictured below. I would NOT be comfortable drilling my swingarm, either!



With a Roca Style hugger no drilling is required.

i bought one that requires the original chain gaurd to be removed. from there, you put those two bolts back on, but need to drill the other side. what i did was just ran a strip of velcro on the right side instead of drilling, and it seems to work perfect...

I used heavy duty doublesided foam tape between the hugger and arm and also put a black zip tie around the outside of the brace and the hugger. Seems good so far.

i agree with others on using chainguard bolt if possible
