    Good show! Now that ought to allow more cargo carrying capability. You will have to provide a video showing "towing tips" with an actual trailer.

      Next related video will be to show wiring up their harness to the Bushtec pigtail. Then, a MotoVlog pulling the trailer. Towing tips is a great idea.

          But you only have to do that job once right?

        Honestly, other than having to grind off the nuts on the tipover bars (which really is not that big of a deal), it was easier to install than the Bushtec hitch on my 2012. Having to remove the mufflers is a bit of a pain, but still, I prefer the install to the 2012.

          Come on I installed a Bushtec hitch on my 05 and 10. It took me a 1/2 hour. That looks like a 2 hour job.

            Huge shout out to Cruiseman for the video! I installed the Rivco tonight. If you look on top of the trunk in one of the pics you'll see my iPad with his video playing. I kept on hitting play/pause as I went through the install. Everything went flawless. It took about 3 hours and I couldn't be happier with the way it turned out. Cruiseman, you also helped me with a question I had on your YouTube Channel related to pulling different types of trailers. Thank you!!

            Saw your video on setting-up the trailer and it is good - has a lot of great advice for anyone who tows or is considering a trailler for a motorcycle.

            I noticed what I thought you had installed were the skirts for the rear fender. If so, how do they perform? Do they keep the road dust from collecting on the back (as I believe it is prone to doing more-so on this model)?

              I have a question for all you techies. I installed the Rivco trailer hitch and the Rivco isolator for the wiring. I bought the Showcrome isolator and would like an opinion on tapping into the output for the trailer wiring from the Rivco unit instead of tapping into the bikes wiring, I hate tapping into the wires on the bike.

                Better to use the RIVCO isolator than tapping into the wires, if you have that option. I have done it both ways, and never had a problem with the ShowChrome isolator, but I always prefer NOT to intrude into the wiring if possible.
