Stereo for GL1200 Interstate

Post by Gord Jones » Wed Apr 25, 2018 6:22 pm



Can anyone point me in the direction of a replacement unit for my GL1200? Mine had seen much better days before I bought the bike and I'm getting down to the final strokes in the refurbish. Alternatively, is there another stereo that would fit?

Thanks very much.

I have had an '82 Interstate and now have an '87 Interstate. In my setup on the fairing for both it allowed for any standard size stereo replacement to fit. If I could see a photo of your setup I would be better able to recommend a stereo that would fit. I am attaching a link to the stereo that fit in both of my Interstates. The purchased stereo came with a steel sleeve that fits into most existing stereo allowing for it to be inserted with not much problem.

Here is what worked for me. It has Bluetooth, and can also play mp3's from an SD card. And has a aux port to play anything through it the takes a 1/8 inch jack. The cool thing about the Bluetooth is that I can hear my map app from my phone through the stereo even when the music might be on. AND it only costs $25, pretty easy to install, and for the price, well made and doesn't give me any problems.

I hope it can fit for you. A pic of your dash would help me help you.
