    I'm not sure if this is the right place for this, but here I am, and the mods can move it if they like.

    I'm looking at buying a used Unigo trailer and the hitch is currently off a Honda ST1300.

    I'm thinking of putting it on my GS1150, or buying a GT1200.

    But, my question is, how difficult would it be for a shop to to modify the current hitch to fit my bike? (Whatever it is) Is this really time consuming $$$ so I'd be better just buying a new hitch? Or is this fairly easy to do? A new hitch is $325 plus shipping.

    I know, I can't do it.

    Thanks for the input, apart from, why a trailer?:wink:

    I have the complete setup - 2000 1150GS and LOVE it!
    Hitch requires some fancy bends and basic welding.
    To build one is going to be expensive, to make 5 would drop the price down for sure.
    Its all about setup and design time.

    If you can get a hitch that fits for $325, go for it
