Trailer Hitch for HARLEY-DAVIDSON FLHTCUTG TRI-GLIDES 2009 & 2010
This super-strong receiver type hitch is the finest available. Our U.S. made hitch is fabricated from laser cut steel, hand welded then powder coated - and bolts directly to the frame in minutes. The tongue is triple chrome plated, the receiver is almost completely hidden and the tongue installs easily using a hitch-pin and clip. This hitch is made for use with or without Harley-Davidson’s optional rear bumper. Tongue height is 11”, which accommodates most trailers. Includes necessary hardware and detailed mounting instructions. Kit does not include ball or wiring. See HD007-13 (Sub-Harness for FLH/FLT Harleys®, 1997 & Newer), HD007-28 (Sub-Harness for Harley® CVO Models), HD007-38 (Sub-Harness for CVO SE Models), GL18007-B (1 7/8”Aluminum Ball) and GL18007-C (1 7/8” Chrome Steel Ball). NOTE: FOR 2009 & 2010 HARLEY-DAVIDSON TRI-GLIDES including Street Glide models. This hitch will not fit on 2011 and newer Tri-Glide models.
NOTE: Installing A Trailer Hitch And Your Factory Warranty. There has been and continues to be “harassment” from dealers telling you, the customer and owner, that installing a trailer hitch will “void” your warranty. THIS IS NOT TRUE! In 1975 the federal government passed a set of laws called the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act (please look it up on the internet, and then tell your dealer to do the same). In short, it states that your warranty cannot be voided or canceled for using a non O.E.M. part or accessory (like a trailer hitch). IF the manufacturer of the vehicle can prove that the use of this non O.E.M. part or accessory caused the failure of a part or parts of the vehicle then that part or parts would not be covered under your warranty but your warranty CANNOT be VOIDED or CANCELLED.
What wiring components will I need to purchase to complete the circuit between my motorcycle and my trailer? There are a few possibilities for wiring your HD007-TG-3 trailer hitch. The components needed will depend on year, make, and model of your trike and the configuration of your trailer’s wiring. RIVCO offers plug-n-play components that cover all the motorcycle models our trailer hitches fit. Here are four quick steps to help you determine which wiring components you will need:
1.) You will need our HD007-13 sub-harness to plug into your factory tail light wiring. The HD007-13 will plug in under the cross brace.
2.) Determine if your trailer is a four or five wire system. The motorcycle models we designed the HD007-TG-113 trailer hitch to fit use a four-wire CAN-bus wiring system from the factory. If your trailer is a four-wire trailer system, proceed to step three. If your trailer is a four-wire system, you will need the EC07664 Five to Four wire converter before moving on to step three.
3.) Both four and five-wire trailer systems will require the use of our GL18007-IU isolator. An isolator is like a multi-channel relay pulling power for your trailer lights directly from the motorcycle battery to prevent over-loading your factory motorcycle tail light wiring.
4.) RIVCO does not provide plugs to match other manufacturer’s plugs, as there are far too many. We do however offer two different matched sets of male and female trailer plugs under part numbers TWC001 and TWC002.
We understand that trailer wiring can seem complicated and we are here to help. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us during our business hours via telephone at 262-763-8222 or anytime via email at email@example.com.
