Re: Towing with the LT
Although a while ago, I towed a fully loaded KwiK Kamp pop up, 2 up, from Florida to Oregon with my '99 LT back in 2000. The total round trip was over 6000 miles. Also towed that trailer probably an additional 25 or 30K miles with that same bike. As an MSF Instructor that '99 also spent many hours as my demo bike while teaching the Experienced Rider Course which was full of slow tight turn exercises using "friction zone" techniques. I traded that bike at 98,000 miles on an '05 and it was still running with the original clutch. So my take is that unless you really try hard to abuse the clutch, or have a slave cylinder leak the LT clutch should not be an issue.
