It can only be installed one way really!

The part # on my invoice is 944212-2PIN   2014 Harley pin hitch.

If you look at my 2nd picture of the crossbrace laying on the ground, mine is installed turned over from what it is in that picture.  If you look at your pictures, your crossbrace is upside down than mine.  Yours is installed the way mine is laying loose on the ground.

But. From looking at your last picture, it looks as if you have the ear over the inside saddlebag support/muffler brace bolt like it should be.

So, I would say you have the hitch for a rear bumper as that is about the gap you have.  (Like you stated)..

It looks bad that way.

You will probably have to send them pictures of what you have so it can be figured out more readily.

Problem solved! My invoice is 944212-1pin.  For Street Glide as suspected!  I was suspect when I first saw my bike with the hitch on but then I saw yours and knew something was up.  Thanks for your help.  I will deal with Bushtec tomorrow.

Did you know that VOIDS your warranty from Harley Davidson....Soon as you start having warranty issues, you will have to put your bike back to stock to have it re-instated....

To bad they don't have quick disconnect for a hitch. There's an idea for someone who can make one.

Voiding the warranty is true for a lot of the things we do to our bikes... including fixing the factory "F" ups that come stock on them. :oops: :D

The problem (Bushtec version 1) on left, and the solution (Bushtec version 2) on right.  The CVOs require version 2.  If you get version 1 your hitch will hang about 2 inches below the fender. (See previous pics)

The finished installed hitch,  (Version 2).  The center section should be just about even with the bottom of the fender.

The plug tucks neatly up out of view when not in use.

For those with vance and Hines monster rounds, the bushtec won't fit. Took multiple go arounds with bushtec to discover why mine did not fit. Had monster ovals on old bike and it did fit.  I went with mchitch due to ease of install and removal. Both are high quality.  Did keep the hitch pin and wiring harness from bushtec.

that is interesting.  dealer installed my monster rounds and the mounting bracket comes off the muffler horizontally (towards tire)  which doesnt allow the bushtec to be installed without removing the bracket and then pounding the hell out of it in order to reattach.  direct quote from bushtec that their hitch wont work with monster rounds.

i wonder if there are different slip ons in the monster rounds.  mine definitely have a side mounting configuration where as yours seem to mount from the top as do the stock slip ons.

A little excited?   

Far be it for me to seem to be defending Mother Harley.  But there is something to be said for recognizing standards and what we've agreed to and not behaving like petulant children when we don't get more than we were promised or contractually agreed to.

I assume you're suggesting that a trailer hitch must be specifically proscribed in the warranty document?  It doesn't.  The owner's manuals and full warranty documents (if you request them) have language that has varied over the years but they've always had some version of "unapproved accessories" or "unauthorized use" language.  And.... whether we like it or not, towing is a use outside the MoCo's accepted standards.  Why?  Because they say so.

The warranty is a contract we accept by buying the motorcycle.  So, like it or not, we're stuck with it.  That some dealers may be more or less lenient on such things and either look the other way or void everything and blackball the bike only means that the dealers don't all follow the rules the same way; and that's actually a bad thing.  MMWA says and/or suggests a lot of things. But it doesn't help with use of a vehicle that is outside the manufacturer's approved mode of operations.

If you step beyond the warranty to the extended service agreement their language goes so far (yes, in writing) to specifically say you are rightfully and religiously f^(*&*d if you pull a trailer.  It's in their section 2 of the attached document.

So, yeah, whether we like it or not we know this crap is going in and it's the standard we must live within.  We accept it by buying the bike.  That leaves as the only real options to either not buy the bike or man up and go along with the terms of the warranty contract you accepted when you bought the bike.

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".
