trailer hitch installation

Post by fred1diver »



hey everyone, getting the bike ready for the safety tomorrow, once that is a done deal I want to install my trailer hitch, I don't know how to post pictures so I can't show you the model I have, but generally how is a hitch installed on a wing?
I take it I have to remove the side bags to have access to the frame
thanks in advance

Is this similar to the hitch you have?





If so, here are the instructions...

If you aren't having fun doing it, find something else to do.

There isn't much to it, and it pulls and stops a trailer just fine. Good luck!
