I installed a radio on my Interstate last night.
I'm not done making it look pretty yet, and I have some things that I would do differently next time.
I have a faceplate cover that is going to give it a finished look.
Things to do different:
1 buy radio with handlebar controls - OR - buy radio with speed dependent or noise dependent volume adjustment
2 Four speakers - I only have the fronts, and there's no bass.
3 Cable ties inside the fairing, behind the radio. you can't see it, but I know it.
Things I did right:
1 Cheap radio with bluetooth - http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00VK2 ... ingdocs-20
2 Soldered connections, with shrink wrap
3 Sturdy mount faceplate
4 Internal mount antenna - http://www.carid.com/mr-gasket/hidden-r ... aQodaC4AxA
I'll post another after I add the pretty faceplate.
I'll even try to hold still as I take the picture.
Overall I'd say it was a fun, easy project, with satisfactory results.
I hope this helps you if you are considering a radio for your Interstate.
