replace/upgrade radio

Postby shadow1k9 » Thu Mar 17, 2011 10:42 pm



Does anyone know if there is a more up-to-date replacement radio for the Panasonic RM-1100 used in the 1984 1200 Aspencade ?

Do you mean an actual Honda update? if so No what ya see is what ya get.
you can install an aftermarket radio but of course lose the auto volume control and intercom.

If your having problems with the radio you can contact http://www.sierra-mc.com/ they are the only people I know who repair these radios.
If you want to add mp3 capability then you can use a scoche or audiovox fm modulator to run your tunes through the radio.

if you do not care about the cb/intercom system you could fabricate a new system using the stock pull out box. I just finished mine yesterday with common household tools. it still pulls out with the key and used the factory wire harness.i also added a couple switches for my fork and led lights.
