Trailer Electrical Receptacle

How have you attached your receptacle to a 2006 GL1800 for supplying electricity a trailer light system?

I'm not keen on drilling holes in plastic due to the possibility of getting a crack or damage due to the added weight of the receptacle.

Could I get some ideas, maybe some pictures? I have been looking at the Kuryakin receptacle kits but just not sure. I am open to any suggestions.

As always, thank you for your help.

Steve

Get the kits from Cyclemax, remove the plastic that the license plate is on, wire according to the instructions from Cyclemax's kits and cable tie the plug to your hitch. If you do not yet have a hitch installed, get one of the ones that has a full frame and six point mounting as they are about the strongest. It really ain't that hard to do, and you do not need to drill or damage any of the tupperware. Just make sure you get the kits, as they are plug and play and do not require cutting into your wiring on the bike. (you need two kits, normally. The trailer wiring one and the five to four wire adaptation one)

I just used a six wire rubber connector, and fused a wire to the battery.

job one done, and cost was zilch.
