Why not run your trailer wiring directly to the bike tail light wiring block located behind the tail light assembly? Everything you need is right there.

Good luck!

The Bushtec wiring harness should of had a wiring diagram with it. If you wire it like they show you will not have any problems. There should be no need for an extra ground wire.

I recently had a trailer built for my dog. Works great and easy to tow. I am struggling with the wiring. I have and '03 K1200LT. Can someone please tell me the relay that I need? Thanks. I was surprised how easy it is to tow. Just gotta watch the tongue weight and keep it around 10% of trailer and load weight. and give yourself time to stop. and stop with the trailer in line with the bike.
