14 and Newer Harley-Davidson Hidden Hitch with Vertical Receiver
There are times when you need to bring some of the comforts from home on the road with you but some things are too large, or too numerous for the storage on your motorcycle. Installing the HD0074 hidden hitch with vertical-receiver on your motorcycle allows you to tow a trailer full of comforts from home and the process only take about 2 hours with basic tools.
Removing the chrome-plated tongue is as simple as pulling the retaining pin and the tongue out of the receiver. The black powder coated, high-tensile steel hitch frame stays hidden on the bike without the tongue in place. Although not included with our trailer hitch, we offer our GL18007-C tow ball sold separately.
NOTE: When installing this hitch on a Street Glide or Road Glide model with the rear fender tip light the factory light must be replaced with our slim Tail/Brake light to allow room for the hitch pt# HD007-120 (red lens) or pt# HD007-125(smoke lens).
ALSO NOTE: The HD007-120 and HD007-125 taillights are not compatible with Canadian motorcycle models, and RIVCO does not offer one. However, the stock taillight can be re-used on these models with a significant modification to its plastic housing.
Maximum recommended tongue weight of the HD0074 hitch is 60 lbs. Maximum recommended tow weight of the HD0074 is 600 lbs. Do not exceed the motorcycle manufacturer maximum axle weight when towing.
Will installing a trailer hitch void my motorcycle warranty? No, in 1975 the federal government passed a set of laws called the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act. This act states your vehicle warranty cannot be voided or canceled for using any non-original equipment manufacturer (O.E.M.) part or accessory (like our trailer hitch) unless the manufacturer of the vehicle can prove the use of this non-O.E.M. part or accessory caused a failure of any part or parts on the vehicle. We encourage you to research the Magnuson-Moss act then share your findings with your dealer if they tell you installing our trailer hitch or any of our accessories will void your warranty.
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 HD0074 trailer hitch. The components needed will depend on year, make, and model of your motorcycle 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 Three quick steps to help you determine which wiring components you will need:
2. Determine if your trailer is a four or five wire system. If your trailer is a five-wire trailer system, you will need the four-to-five wire convertor before moving on to step three.
3. You will also require the use of our 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 motorcycle tail light wiring.
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 888-801-8222 or anytime via email at email@example.com.
