I have never heard of this. There doesn't seem to be any place to mount one, or even fab anything on the aluminum swing arm. Also I have a feeling it would shorten the life of the axle bearings pretty quickly as they are likely only designed around the quads load alone, as opposed to quad plus trailer. The 660R would burn up bearings a little too fast too.

Some folks feel the same about reverse and electric start. Sometimes I like them, sometimes not. :D

Why? Is it too wimpy to pull a damn little trailer around the yard filled with dog $hit? Sounds like more fun to me than hooking it up to my Garden tractor........................

i have to agree on the borderline approach. hurry up and pick up the dog crap then go riding--- without the trailer

OK, maybe not picking up dog crap but doing dumb little things for the Ol' lady.
Besides, keeping the WR450 for really having fun

At what point can mods be considered an addiction?

I probably wouldnt try and weld on a hitch to the arse end of my rappy but rather fabricate a trailer that would latch on to the rear grab bar with some sort of hook. If you only intend to carry smmal light weight loads, it should work just fine. That way the rear shock / swingarm could help distribute the load. Assuming its one of those little plastic trailers.

If you are looking for pulling any kind of weight, I would recomend getting some sort of utility built to handle it.

Gonna use the Garden tractor.
Not usually a fan of white but something about White with Silver and Black sure looks mean

I've often thought about some sort of trailer hitch for my 660.
Some of the places we ride we have to park the trucks quite aways from the riding spot and we have a "gathering spot" within the riding area that we stop to BS and sometimes have a cookout or somethin.
It's kind of a pain to carry stuff on a sport quad.

And no, I'm not putting a six pack rack on my quad...yuck.

03 Raptor Bone stock... Honest!

03/04 Raptor built from parts.
It's stock too of course...
