    2013 GTL Trailer Hitch?

    Anyone have lead(s) on a trailer hitch for the 2013 K1600GLT and associated wiring that protects the CANBUS?

    I would check with Bushtec. They have the wiring figured out from earlier canbus models and may have a hitch , at least in the design stage.

    Bushtec definitely does have a K16 hitch -- recently released (in the last month or two). The different versions may be found here: http://www.bushtec.com/BMW-Motorcycl...shtec-s/21.htm

    If you decide to install it yourself be sure to let me know (here or PM). I will save you a lot of time and headache. -Roy

    I picked up another GTL in January, and installed a Bushtec in place of the DMC hitch I had on my previous K16. For the electrical, you can also get an isolator from Bushtec, or just purchase an isolator directly from Electrical Connection.

    Hitch Installed

    Thank you everyone for your input. I went with the DMC hitch and it was pretty easy to install. Took about 3 hours going slow. As for the wiring, all was included except I needed to buy a device that integrates the turn signal and brake lights (wires) since I use a four wire (three with ground) plug. Just got back from a trip to Grand Canyon and trailer pulls great and all electrical is fine. Thanks again!
