Default Want to Trailer a Ruckus

So I've been doing lots of research here on s2ki on putting a hitch on my S. My goal is to be able to tow my Honda Ruckus on a utility trailer or maybe even a small motorcycle trailer. The tow will be all highway between here and Iowa mostly so I can have both my toys when I'm home on leave and also for going to meets and shows things of that nature. I've seen some discussion from the upstate members and I just wanted to do a quick poll to get some personal opinions. I like the chase race hitch because it it removable and no drilling required. But I like that the curt hitch is half the price of the chase race hitch. I know everybody is about saving money. So tell me what you think, which would you use and why?



Also little side note... I seen a topic regarding which exhaust fits with the hitches. I did see Invidia V3 fits with the chase race on MY00-03 but what about MY04+?

Ok, I admit it, I had to google that to figure out what a Ruckus is, looks cool




Sorry, I have no clue about the best hitch anymore
I would suggest though you hop over to S2000 Racing & Competition forum and ask there about a hitch
Lots of guys there pull little trailers for autox equipment, they will have some insights
And our local Conedodger (Mark) will also have some thoughts as he pulled a trailer for autox

Check out this guys's custom hitch if you haven't seen it already. This is the slickest install I've seen to date: http://www.s2ki.com/s2000/topic/870093-s-tow-thousand/

Granted he's not selling, but if I had to put a hitch on my S (I would love to carry my bike!) This is what I would do.

I have a Gendron AP1 hitch for sale right now. (Actually, it may be sold, waiting to hear back from the potential buyer.) The Chase hitch is the best one going right now. The Curt hitch isn't removable like the Gendron or Chase hitch. I think it spoils the look of the car.

I think the '04 bumper sits lower than the AP1 bumper. Without modifying the bumper, I don't think it would fit.
