I am pretty sure that only the SE model had the wires for the speakers. The Interstate and Aspencade had to have the wire harness added by the after aftermarket installation kit. Big Bike Parts and Parts Unlimited sold the kits.

Make, model, and year is always helpful.

2001-05s didn't come from the factory with rear speakers. They were one of 55 Hondaline accessories that can be added later.

The kit might still be available
