Re: Trailer brakes
Unless you are pulling a camper, don't think you need one.
I have pulled my "homemade HF" trailer for around 18,000 miles in the last two years, and prior to this had another trailer on my 93 1100 lt and pulled this for 12 years and over 70,000 miles without any extra trailer brakes. Can only load around 200 lbs, so total with trailer would be 350 lbs and is not hard to stop with ABS!! Starting is a little harder.
I read somewhere that someone added disc brakes to his trailer, search, maybe its easy to find. I think it was a camper but not sure.
