    K1600GTL Trailer Hitch
    « on: 2016-03-10 13:22:13 »
    I am looking for information about a trailer hitch for my K1600GTL 2013 and was wondering if anyone had any experience towing a trailer with the K1600 and if so, any recommendations, cautions, etc....   I am experienced at pulling a trailer with my old K1200, but that was hard on the clutch... Would not want to burn out another clutch, but have been told that the K1600 has a different style clutch that should handle towing a trailer. Have also read that a special wiring relay is required for the lights and CanBus.

    Any suggestions or comments would be appreciated from someone who is pulling a trailer now.

      Not sure if you will find many K1600 riders using trailers in Europe. Not very common to use a bike with trailer here - we call something like that "cars"  ;)

      But check out the American K1600 forum. There are several threads about this topic - some users even built their own trailers.
      It doesn't have to make sense. It's ok if it's just fun :-)
