This is the one I have. It is not cheap, and it is not the strongest hitch for the FJR but it has the advantage of being easily removed with 4 bolts which is why I got it as I had nightmares about having a flat tire in between Sioux Falls and Rapid City, and can't get the rear tire off because I didn't have the tools to take the hitch off {most hitch's attach between the muffler bracket and the frame} and both brackets have to be removed to remove the hitch and the hitch has to be removed to remove the rear wheel.

This is the strongest hitch on the market, in my opinion, but it doesn't come off quickly, and you can't run a Car Tire with it on.

There are more hitches out there.

Could I get some pictures of how it mounts to the rear please? I am thinking about getting the PitBull trailer set up that uses the openings of the rear wheel to hold the bike upright on the trailer. Curious if this might be an issue

I checked with Pit Bull a while back and there was NO setup for an FJR. It does work awesome on my FZ-10 thou!
