Removing trailer hitch

Postby mcolvin » Sat Jan 01, 2011 7:01 pm



I'm looking to install a tow-pac trike kit onto my '89 GL1500, but when I began this install I found that I already had a trailer hitch installed. It looks like I need to replace one with the other, so is there an easy way to remove the original hitch?

Isn't it just bolted on?

The trailer hitch on my '89 is just bolted on. There are a couple of u bolts and it's also bolted to the frame in the area of the rear pegs.

I guess that what I should've asked was whether there is a way to do this without having to remove the side compartments and bodywork?

Is it necessary to replace the existing hitch????
Thought the insta trike utilized a trailer hitch.
I call Tow Pak and ask.
