Harley-Davidson Street Glide (FLHX) Motorcycle Hitch Fitment Guide

. 2006, Harley-Davidson introduced a new model to its touring line up, the FLHX Street Glide. Designed by Willie G. as his “personal ride,” the Street Glide added a bit of flair to the full dresser category.

While the underlying bike is an Electra Glide, differences in the back end of the bike affect hitch fitment. The most significant difference is the lighted rear fender. While this adds a touch of attitude to the back end, the light housing occupies some of the room used for hiding the receiver portion of a motorcycle trailer hitch. (Not that Harley cares. You ain’t supposed to be pulling a trailer anyway, according to their manual.)

. 2009, the Street Glide underwent the same frame change as other touring bikes in the FLH/FLT series. Hitch designs changed, again, to accommodate the new frame. New hardware was added to accommodate bikes equipped with the four-point quick release system for the TourPak.

Then, . 2010, another change to the Street Glide added a new twist that really complicated things for Harley hitch makers. Өсөн 2010 model year, Harley moved from an incandescent light fixture to an LED powered fixture in the rear fender. That’s not a surprise. LEDs are becoming common on bikes.

The problem is that the housing for the LED lights was much larger than before, completely eliminating the space behind the fender that hitch makers counted on.

While this complicates things, it doesn’t mean you can’t get a hitch for a current Street Glide. But for now, you can’t get one that is quite as fully hidden as in years past. That may change as the light fixture box evolves.

But for now, here’s the line up of choices.

Hitches for Harley Street Glide – 2006 2008

Your choices in this category are pretty simple. Our chrome hitch for the Street Glide is almost identical to the one for the Electra Glide. It installs in exactly the same way. If you watch the video for installing a hitch on an Electra Glide, you’ll be set.

The only difference between the two is that the receiver tube is cut down so that it doesn’t make contact with the light box housing behind the fender.

In black powdercoat mc hitches. the receiver is horizontal instead of vertical. That means it required no changes, so this is exactly the same hitch as is used on the Electra Glide.

Hitches for Harley Street Glide – 2009

Harley-Davidson FLHX Street Glide

2009 was a unique year for the Street Glide. It had the new frame, but still had the incandescent lights in the fender. A new chrome receiver hitch was designed for it.

This is the same as the chrome Electra Glide hitch, except for the same change – the receiver tube is shorter.

The black powdercoat Harley hitch for the 2009 FLHX is the same as the 2009-to-present Electra Glide.

Hitches for the Harley Street Glide – 2010 to present

At present, there is one hitch option for Street Glides from 2010 to present. That is the black powdercoat hitch. Because it uses a horizontal receiver, there’s nothing to get in the way of the light box housing.

The folks at HitchDoc who build our chrome hitches have been working on a fixed-ball chrome hitch, but no release date has been announced.


This is the third article in a series about Harley hitches. The first article discusses in general the Harley hitches we sell. The second article discussed Electra Glide hitch options.
