I wired both mine using harnesses that I had made up myself (With connectors, wire, and Spiral wrap from Amazon, 6-Wire connectors).
The harness is connected to a Show Chrome accessory fuse block I fitted, which allows other accessories to be connected safely through the Canbus system.

But if you only want to fit the trailer wiring, the link above will take you to a suitable item.

Having said that, doing it yourself with the Accessory block works out a little more expensive than this, but gives you much more flexibility for adding other accessories as well.

So you have options.

fatjock,i am pulling a 6 pin bushtec trailor,and I will add led,gps,usb,ect,down the road I"m sure,you are saying I need to buy the show chrome accessory fuse block in order to do this,and by doing this,all that is required is removing the top cover of the fuse block with the 4 screws and wiring in my accessory,and this is to isolate the accessories from the bike,is this correct?is this all I need to order to hook up the trailor to the bike or will I need to get the 4 pin to 6 pin wiring hook up also?again,thanx

You will need to connect the Accessory block to your battery power, as well as splicing into the rear section harness (plug and play) but the unit comes with good wiring instructions of exactly what you need to do, and it will fit under the seat.
Once you have it in, it provides outputs for 12V permanent, 12V switched (ign), LH turn, RH turn, Brake, and running lights. What I have done is take each of these outputs to a multi-connector, and I have all my non-genuine Honda accessories powered through it (trailer Harness/ Pathfinder Cowl lights/Goldstrike multifunction trunk light/ Front and rear camera system). You can wire all your accessories through this. It has an incoming fuse, and the outputs are individually fused too.
Trailer Harness from the accessory block was the connector, into six wires spiral wrapped and fed through to under the seat, which then went to the appropriate multi-connector.
I recently rewired my two, as I wasn't happy with the connectors I had previously, and the whole job (including the trailer, and two bikes), took about two hours.
