GL rear speaker wiring.

Postby bravo655 » Wed Sep 14, 2011 12:22 pm



I bought a rear speaker set from "BIG BIKE PARTS" out of Turtle Lake, WI. I dont need the fader, just wanna plug in the rear speakers. IF, I could find the "Black Rubber Boot" which is supposed to contain the "black 4 pin connector". It is not in any of the plastic cases of the larger connectors. BIG BIKE wants me to cut the tape and see if the boot is hidden. Not impressed with the product or the company. I had my neighbor, 2003 18000 over for a fresh set of eyes with no luck.

Hey bravo665, did you ever find the rear black 4-pin connector for the rear speakers? And if you did, after you plugged the speakers in did they work OK? I bought a rear speaker kit with a fader control form Drag Specialties and I'm in the process of installing them. I found the rear black 4-pin connector for the rear speaker harness inside a rubber boot under the seat, tucked under the left fram just above the rear shock. But I'm having a very hard time finding the front black 4-pin connector for the fader harness. I'd like to give up at this point and not instal the fader control at all, if the rear speakers will work without it.

No such luck. I advise against ever making a purchase from BIG BIKE PARTS" out of Turtle Lake, WI. I spoke to one of their staff, who I had to call three times after I explained the problem. The guy doesn't ride, and knows even less about the products they sell.
