Bushtec Trailer Hitch Questions

Anyone installed a Bushtec trailer hitch? Mine just came but can't install right now (bike in shop). The instructions and photos leave a lot to be desired. If you have experience with one of these please PM me so I can call you with questions...

They are easy to put on what kind of questions do you have.

Duane, former member Mark Neblett of Fairfax, Va did a 'how to Bushtec' install about two years ago with pictures. Do a search of his posts, user name mneblett and you'll find it. Btw; if you can get in touch with Mark you just may be able to get him to help you with the installation. Inmo; Mark possesses more technical knowledge of BMW motorcycles than anyone I've had the pleasure of knowing.

Bruce, I have Mark's post from back then bookmarked. Unfortunately the photos are being held hostage by PB... You're right, he is/was one smart cookie on these bikes. I've sent him a PM and hopefully he'll answer, he's only about 45 minutes from me. What I'd like is a close-up photo of the attachment points for the hitch/bike.

Thanks RAW, I've seen that video, as you know, it's not a Bushtec hitch.

Bushtec Hitch

I got the first hitch that Bushtec made for the K1600GTL in 2012.
I'll get some pictures, tomorrow.
