My 2014 CCT manual shows this:
From each side of the lower triple-tree and each side of the swingarm.

Thanks Paul. I found it in the service manual. By the way I put the wool bad boy horn on this weekend. Now when those cars are sitting at a light texting when it changes, I can bow them out of their seat.

How could you put in a horn and never read your owners book.

Excellent!!!
I can't wait to get mine in. It's been sitting on my desk for 2 months. Mind you, in 2 months I put 5,000 kms on her, so I guess I can be forgiven... Lol

well i looked at the drawing and the bike. now way i can hook up that way. they must have used my VTX as a model. with a faring there is no way that tie down can come out the front like that. and instead of hooking to the swing arm, i will have to connect to the bag rails in the back. or take the bags off. which is probably the better idea.

I usually loop the ratchet strap up through the forks behind the fairing and then back down to the secure point on the trailer. One strap on each side. Works very well.

However, I just bought a set of these Tie Down Brackets from Kuryakyn and they should arrive tomorrow. They work with the tube engine guard and with the forged highway bars. Can't wait. Should make loading on a trailer easier and faster.
