I've seen people simply cut a hole and mount an auto or marine (weatherproof) receiver in their bikes. There were some aftermarket kits to do it on the 1100, I don't know if that exists on the 1200 or not.

You can check in this post, it might give you some ideas:

I installed this one for a customer recently http://www.amazon.com/Pioneer-DEH-6300U ... B004CLYOG4

In order to install it using the bezel shown in the first link I had to remove a section of the stiffener in the fairing, after that it went in nicely

I have one on my 84 gl1200I. It sticks out a little but works fine. You will need a spacer of about 2 inches as the radio will hit the back.

I ran wires straight to the speakers as mine didnt have the radio when I got it. I don't believe there is a harness to mate the two together. With time I could make something up, but I would have to have the system here. I would also have to look at the wireing diagram to see what wires is what.
