Depending on what type you buy...primarily it's 2 small bolts at the back of the swingarm next to the rear shocky in a recess. Then if it has a chain guard or not the bolts for the figment of that too. HTH.

The left hand fixing on the side/front of the hugger. Two more on the opposite side below the chain guard.---- ( I'll try and find a pic of the opposite side )

here's a pretty clear photo I took when the metal support for my Skidmarx hugger failed. two 6mm hex bolts (iirc). you need them long enough to fully engage into the swingarm - the OEM 'filler' bolts are far too short. but if the are too long, the bottom end of the bolt will 'bang up against' the head of the transverse bolt securing the shock, so it may take a bit of adjustment ( cutting and filing ) to get to the optimum length. also that bolt hole tends to grime up, from its open bottom down by said shock bolt, so it can be useful to clean it with a tap, or a bolt and lots of oil, before doing the final installation. oh, and you need hand sizes like a six year old girl to manipulate the little buggers while holding the hugger in position, etc. fury... ( but you dare not cross-thread the thing! )

p.s. I suggest removing the rear wheel to give yourself working room... been there; done that...

The brake lines on the bike in the pic are UNDER the hugger. You can just see them at the left and right.

On the ABS version I don't know, sorry.

Yeah, Mine's an ABS and my lines do go above the rear hugger/chain guard.
Would have been nice to see all of the hugger for effect.----;)
