Re: 2012 cb operating manual/instructions

you need to havea cb installed on the bike to use it. honda stopped putting them in after a certain year. it then became an "accessory" part that yo need to add.if you only have one anteena ( on the right side of trunk) then you dont have a cb installed, its plug-and-play once you have it.

Re: PHONE QUESTION?

Once installed, you can listen to am/fm, intercom, Xbox,etc as normal. If you receive a call, those are muted and you push the button on the supplied controller. Once done with the call all functions are resumed. Install isn’t bad as the unit mounts under the left storage box.

Re: Sirius/XM Satellite Radio Antenna Location

i ended up buying an OEM antenna , and found the connector under the right side control panel.for $40 it was ALOT easier.just disconnect the old one , hook on new and run the wire up the right side up the dash. viola! better reception.

Re: db651 speaker upgrade

i have done the front AND rear conversion on my 2013 ( 651s up front and 501s in rear). to me, they sound much clearer than stock and get far less distortion if i have to turn up the volume over 20

Re: GL1800 speaker replacement

2012 and newer use the db651s for the fronts. both front and rear need minor trimming but the sound improvement is well worth it.
