Here is another one. It says universal so I don't know the speaker size but it includes a fader control. ... ER_KIT.htm

I got Polk DB 401 speakers off of Amazon and the wiring kit from another site like what is pictured in previous post. I replaced my front speakers at the same time. So much better sound, the front speaker cones were non-existent.

I bought the aftermarket rear speaker kit off Ebay, you have to remove seat and left front side cover to access the OE harness, I had an extra rear speaker control housing from a wrecked 98SE but decided to keep my stock fairing as it has the 25th Anniversary logo, so my fader included with the kit is mounted inside the LF pocket, speakers are quite loud, single cone type, pay attention to how speakers mount and where to plug into.

I had earlier replaced the front speakers with some 3 ways, they are not as loud but have more frequency spread, so the rear ones are just fine being single cone for me at least.
