You joined the wrong forum, you need to Google "Harley Davidson".

I lived in Puerto Rico for awhile and it seemed like EVERYONE had a system installed on their bike...so I know what you're talking about. And a bunch of shops down there sell speaker systems for bikes, but I don't know which brands or how to find them:( Sorry man...post up if you figure it out

Oh yeah I forgot...my buddy has a "universal" mount on his Kawasaki zx6r above his Tach that has a blue tooth adapter built in. So he'll hook up his iPod to the mount and plug it into the bluetooth, and his Chatterbox in his helmet receives the music. Pretty spendy set up, I think the Chatterbox runs between 250 and 300 bucks, and the mount was $110 (plus an iPod:). No outside speakers though

aight so far one of my friends explained to me how its done, i need to find a small enough amp to fit in the rear seat, hook up the positive to the battery and ground. then connect the remote wire to the taillight, so when i turn it on the amp turns on. then run speaker wires to the speakers and the RCA up to where ever u'd like. and buy a "y" to convert RCA to Jack and hook it up to an Ipod or some type of MP3, once i start this ill post pics up....thanks for the help though

>.> i hade on on my old r1... it shared my wind screen and caused some damage... i used car mini system.. i picked it up at any auto dealer, and i beleve e-bay has some kits made for them.. its not really hard. (but that last system took some time to fit and was HEEAAVVY.. and when i turned it up past 6 it messed with my rear view crama system)

may people take some car mods like that and make them work (mostly light related tho)


and hate to ask this but why only on a "GSXR"..

i say if you like it do it.. its your bike (as long its not "Too out thire")

I usually ride w/ one headphone in my ear, keep one off so i can hear traffic and such.

Im working on a setup for speakers too. I just ordered the same Mitzu amp as you but got the 500 watt instead cuz i thought it was too big to fit :bash. I thought ur size would be too big but looks like it fits perfect right under the seat. Have you finished this with speakers and all? any pics???
