Radio Wiring Harness for 1998 GL1500

Postby bama7 » Sun Jun 12, 2016 6:32 pm



I was able to purchase the 1998 Gl1500SE with Lehman conversion and I am pleased with it. I am looking to replace the stock radio with something just a little more updated. I don't want to go with the RCA plug adapter added to the radio. I am looking for someone to make a plug and play harness for me. I want the harness to plug into existing wiring on the bike and to the new radio so no original wires have to be cut. Does anyone on here do that, or does anyone know of where I can have it done? I am also looking for suggestions as to what radio to use. I would like something with am/fm, usb, and rca plug capability. It sounds as if the marine type radios may be the best route. I live outside Jacksonville, Florida so if anybody knows somewhere close please let me know. I just got an old wiring harness from a 1999 SE to maybe help in the manufacture. I know I will have to have the new radio so the wiring can be done. I am looking for someone who can do it, because it sure ain't me. Thanks for the help guys.

Thanks for the reply. Hopefully I will talk to them this week. I had an aux switch done by them on the 1993 GL1500 I had before this one.

I called and talked to a tech at Sierra and he said probably will never be done. It would take too much research to be able to make a profit even if it could be done. Oh well. There is enough technology out now to get plenty of good sound on my bike. Thanks for the help guys.
