When I put mine on my 09, the dealer said technically it voids the warranty but we will honor any claim unless directly responsible due to towing. Fair is fair and I accepted that. As stated above "Man up".

That's great they're willing to extend the courtesy.  But it's a courtesy that's only good at that particular shop's whim and only so long as some other dealer (or the same one later on when some new service writer does otherwise of the shop just changes its mind) doesn't blackball the bike in the system.  Rather the warranty version of walking on egg shells.

Boatman,
What was difference between the '10 hitch and the '14 hitch that you installed that made purchasing a new one a necessity ?
I thought they were all version 2 hitches and that the Harley frames had not changed at all.
I have currently a version 2 on my 2012 Ultra Classic, and have just purchased a 2016 CVO Limited. I thought I could just swap the hitches between them (I would check to make sure the harnesses were compatible though....)
Please advise

The reason I'd put a 'hitch' on my '12 SG would be to have a golf club rack mounted...it would also require wiring as the golf bag would block the brake and signal lights.

I can't seem to find the hitch-mounted style that I was referring to...but, did find a couple that work on the detachable plates.  http://www.golfhograck.com/site/photo-gallery.html   But, still need to address the brake/signal light issue.

They told me they were different so I took their word.  I wasn't smart enough to match them up or try the 2010 hitch.  If you have a 2009 to 2013 hitch, I would try it first.  There can't be that much difference.   Good luck and let us know what you find.

DKL032,

I Think you will find that they were trying to install V and H Propipes which mount on the side, not Monster Rounds. (which have a top mount)
Has anyone had success with mounting the Prop Pipes which have the mount on the side???
