Install trailer hitch

Post by rexliggett » Tue Apr 05, 2016 6:48 pm



I purchased a used trailer hitch from my local Honda dealer, no instruction came with it, is it very hard to install the hitch myself on my 2005 wing? Anything I should know?

If you can identify the manufacturer you should be able to go to their website for instructions.

+1 on identyfing the hitch. If it's a jury hitch it is pretty easy. Put one on in about 45min. Hardest part was the wiring. But if you get the plug and play from cycle max it is easier.

Do you have the brackets that go at the ends of the bars to fasten to crash bars? It doesn't look like a kuryakyn hitch just from the ends of the brace bars. Maybe rivco or show chrome.

Looks like the hitch on my 08. It is an add on hitch, check the link for instructions.
