Re: GL1500 stereo upgrade/replacement

You guys are all correct on the relay and fuse. I will get to it soon lol. Stereo has a factory 15amp inline fuse also. Rode to work and back in the rain today radio worked fine on factory 5amp acc port. But it was also 20 degrees cooler today as a cold front came through. Thank God, it feels good ...

Re: GL1500 stereo upgrade/replacement

Also as a reminder, the buttons suck. Even more so now that I rode the bike with gloves per normal. Bad choice of stereo lol..... Dang, I was looking at that one, as a good solution. I was planning on hooking up the stock handlebar switches to the remote port, so maybe that will make the bad button...

Re: GL1500 stereo upgrade/replacement

I would not go from a 5A to a 15A without knowing how the factory fuse block is made. Since the fuse is right next to the terminals I would guess that there is a pretty substantial strip of metal connecting them. But that is just a guess. It could also be a super thin bus that will melt above 5A th...

Re: GL1500 stereo upgrade/replacement

DAAYYUMMM, , that marine radio mounted on that blank panel REALLY looks GOOD Novawing!!! Looks like you did a fine job with making the "cut-out". Does that Jensen come with a "template" to help with cutting out the right size hole??? I wish I'd found that Jensen radio before I settled for mine, , ,...

Re: GL1500 stereo upgrade/replacement

Looks like only 5amp? Can I up the fuse? I haven't decided on a fuse block yet, but the stereo is ready to install. Just add a relay to the acc terminal, then you can use it to switch the 15amps your stereo needs. Many fuse blocks have provisions for that type of relay so you can take care of all t...

Updates coming! A dumb question first.... Has anyone powered a marine grade or any car stereo off the single available accessory port on the left factory fuse block? Looks like only 5amp?

Re: GL1500 stereo upgrade/replacement

Since that Jensen will work great with the stock/OEM power/ground/speaker wires, I don't think you need the fuse block. Smack already did the wiring diagram to run that unit off the handlebar controls for ya, , Removing the OEM stereo is probably the best choice, , good job. What else are you plann...

New 5.5 in with 1.5 in crossover in front with 4.5 speakers in back. Will send in pics as soon as I have all installed. One question to the group. S...

Re: GL1500 stereo upgrade/replacement

HMMM, , , , ,Would you consider making a "Pedestal" to match the face which might give you the clearance you need to avoid a conflict with the OEM stereo?? You could use 1/4" or 3/8" thick pads cut to size, , and stacked up to give you the clearance you want. The face is meant to sit flush with a f...

So I recently switched from Delo 400LE to Mobil 1 synthetic 10w-40 high mileage and I think my clutch may be slipping.

Re: GL1500 stereo upgrade/replacement

You don't need the depth it would fit fine at the stock radio depth in fact the Jensen is thinner than the stock one. Right, but I was thinking leave the factory radio, add the cover, because doesn't it attach to the radio not the shelter? Then add another cover on top of that to get the clearance ...

Sounds like you would be best served with the unobtainium 2.1 panel. Then you would still be able to use the cover over your new stereo. Unfortunately you are now exactly right.

Re: GL1500 stereo upgrade/replacement

Well I finally swapped out the stereo in my 1500 for something a little more modern. I really created a new harness for it so that I could go back if I chose. It came out great and it sounds a lot better especially with the 5.25 speakers I managed to cram into the dash. 12 wpc to 40 wpc makes quite...
