GL1200I stock speaker size..

Postby 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
