GL1200I stock speaker size..

Post by wehrd1 » Thu Sep 01, 2011 11:06 am



I'm looking to replace the cr@ppy tinny speakers in the gl.

i'm not @ home right now, and don't recall the size .... I'm going with much nicer marine speakers and need to know the correct size, so they'll fit in the fairing w/o any mods

thanks!

-Colleen

I believe it's 4 inches good luck the stock radio can only do so much you are looking 1985 technology some of the wingers are going to a more powerful set up.But I talked to one person and it is expensive.Good luck and God Bless

thanks.

i'm replacing the whole unit with a marine radio too. I have an Interstate, and it's a drop in unit to begin with, and not OEM.

It has the mounting bezel with the hinged cover lid.

Hi Wehrd1,

How did the radio replacement go? Any issues? I just received a 86 wing as a gift, Father In-law bought a 99, and the radio doesn't work. I would like to replace the radio with a "standard" head unit and do away with the separate amp and such. Which radio did you end up using?

This is the first wing I've ever ridden/owned and it's a very cool bike. My wife says it's much more comfortable than any of the Harleys we have rented. We have only had it for a week and have already went to a poker run. Overall miles were 250 for the day and it went great. A working stereo would have been even better....

Thanks for your help!

4" in mine, and I assume they were original because they were dried and cracked.

So where does one get a "marine" radio that will fit in a 1200?

They're not too hard to find. I know Crutchfield carries them: Marine Receivers

I'm got mine from Amazon, just can't get one with CD, in fact mine was taken out of the case and put in the stock case, wired up the plug to use it so I can pull it in and out just like the stock Radio only problem is it looses all memory when I pull it then I have to reprogram
