Question Hitch Receiver on XR - manufacturer?

Greetings All,

While going over the brides "new" XR, found this tucked up under the fender.
Does anyone recognize the manufacturer? We do have a trailer, getting the correct insert would be great. (Yeah, a little more cleaning is in order.).

Also, which side is typically used for the wiring harness?

Thanks in advance, ride safe.

Rivco and Bushtec are the biggest manufactures but Big D made the one I have. I don't have the electrics hooked up. Do you see a dongle for the trailer? Yours looks like the Bushtec to me according to the pictures.

If they went to the trouble to install a hitch you will probably find a trailer plug back there tucked away. Grab a flashlight and give it a good look over.

Greetings,

Thanks #BBob, your links were very helpful. It appears to be a BUSHTEC based on the hardware and website photos. Also, did find the wiring harness on the right side, tucked up under the seat and side cover. It is a HOPKINS 6 prong. Will change that to our round 5, but nice to know it's there.
Also, found a PC-V velcro'd under the left side cover.

Will have to contact BUSHTEC to see if getting the insert alone if possible.

Thanks for the responses. Ride safe,
Smokier

Just installed a Bushtech on mine. If they cant help you out let me know. I can measure mine up, and do some drawings and you should be able to get someone to fab it up for ya. You will need a powered signal converter or your extra trailer lights will more than likely cause troubles with the bikes electrical.

A couple years back when I added some lights to the bag rails, I built a direct plug n play jumper lead that plugs into the rear light circuit. So adding the brake light isolator last month was pretty simple. No @#%$^ scotch locks or hacking wires.

Just say no to scotch locks.
