Interesting thread . Around 1980 I made hitches for my LTD 440 and my buddy's KZ 650 . both hitches were mounted to the swing arms . We rode on pavement 95% of the time and didn't have any problems other than remembering the trailer was behind us . We didn't think adding a high frame mounted "lever" to the sprung weight would be a good idea . On a dual sport where you need much more clearance and flex , maybe . We just used a standard 1 7/8" ball on our trailer . Can't remember what our trailer weighed empty , but the heaviest when loaded was 332 lbs . Didn't effect handling but the gas mileage went straight down the shitter ! [IMG]Photo & Video Sharing by SmugMug[/IMG]
