SVTF Trailer Hitch

Does anyone know of a trailer hitch that'll work with the SVTF? I see them for the ZX3's, but they all say "Except SVT". I'm not looking for much, just want to be able to pull a bike trailer with a sport bike or dirt bike in it.

Wow... a word combination that I thought I would never see!

I am guessing that it could be possible, but the problem is that the SVT rear bumper facia goes down further than a stock ZX3s. To make it work, you would either have to remove the rear bumper facia completely, or I am thinking now, that possibly removing the honeycomb rear diffuser may provide you with addequate room for a trailer hitch.

Yes, there was a member with a hitch on his SVTF and it looked nice. He cut a small square out of the honeycomb for the receiver. I am not sure what hitch was used though. Try searching here and focaljet.

A hitch on a SVT is like a body kit on train. Sure you can, but why?

If you do this, don't list as a mod, and hang some ball from it.
