1800R with hitch - wants to go Darkside

Hi guys. Been a while.


Got a call from an old friend yesterday. He picked up an 1800R after wrecking his 1300S. He put a trailer hitch on it, an under the fender type, and now he wants to go Darkside back there.


I've dealt with the situation on 1300s before but never on an 1800. With the inside mount hitch that really eliminated options for most DS tires on the 13s and I'm expecting the same issue with an 18.


Anyone ever dealt with this issue on the 18s? Or even read about someone else dealing with it?

Hi
The 1300 n 1800 have the same fender so the hitch is the same I didn't ride DS tire but can tell you it didn't have lot of space for wider tire plus 1300 S have 15 " dia. n 1800 R have 16 "

I got an 1800 R rivco solo seat rack for my 1300R, the bolt holes did not line up, is everyone sure that the 1300R and 1800R rear fenders are the same? I had to drill another hole to mount it.

I've installed an under-fender hitch on mine several years ago and running darkside. If I remember right, there was a company making those hidden hitches for the 1800s but you were limited to stock rear tire. I fabricated mine because I'm a cheap bastard, but later on, I modified it to go darkside. I had a thread on here somewhere but can't find it. Still have pics and text on my computer if you need it.
