Get your checkbook out. :)

Are you talking about replacing the stereo itself? Or adding an adapter that lets you use bluetooth headsets with your existing system?

I'm looking to replace my 98 GL 1500 stereo with something that will raise and lower volume with the speedometer and have Bluetooth.

I am currently building a 91 from the ground up. The only thing I need in a stereo is bluetooth. I can stream XM, Pandora, or my own music from my phone and don't want clutter on my bike. I have found an amp that up to 3 phones can bluetooth to, at the same time. My wife can control the music and I can drive. The JBL GTR-7535 is a 5 channel amp, it is a little pricey but to me its worth it, and the techs at crutchfield's are great.

When I get to that point (hopefully in June) I was planning on posting results

+1 on the cassette adaptor. Charge it up then just plug in and sync. Simple and cheap. Doesn't raise or lower with revs though.

PBJ RACING Bluetooth solution:
1) Ginsco Cigarette lighter and USB charger combo. Includes butt connectors, ground and fused power wires.
($10 @ Amazon)
2) Omotion Bluetooth FM transmitter
($25.95 @ Amazon)
3) Semi-Easy installation in right side box with homemade “L” bracket.
4) Bolt inside of box used for mounting L bracket and ground.
5) Power wires connected to main fuse next to battery (ground left unplugged until needed on USB port, because of constant power).
6) Raises and lowers with MPH with stock radio.
7) No checkbook needed. 😎
