Hello, brand new to the site, found it in dogpile, great find.

I have a 78 Goldwing, with a Windjammer farring. Bought a few years ago, I think radio was original to the year of birth. Well it failed, and I am going to replace it. First owner had the radio hot wired to the battery, drained the barttery once because of it.

Can some one give me a bit of help on the best spot to wire the power to?

Thanks much

On the left hand side under the false tank cover there is an accessory terminal. That's what I used to connect my Cycle Sound-mounted radio to my "78"

Cinderdick, manatee has the right idea. I had a '78 also, and the fairing can shake a bit when going over bumps, so I'm not sure how a CD player would work. If I were radio shopping, I would look for one with a 1/8" port for an iPod. My '85 has AM/FM/tapedeck and I use a tape adaptor to run my iPod Shuffle thru the speakers. I like this much better than messing around with CD's while on the road.

Thanks a bunch, ACC. Term, cast into the black plastic box,was a big clue to where it was. I'm not sure why he/she wired the power directly to the battery.

Bike runs well now that I had the carbs re-built. Bought it with 28K, now have about 33K, living in the snow belt.

Black, Windjammer, Bates bags, a little extra crome. I'm having a great time, back in the wind. Now I can listen to some tunes, and not have to worry if I shut the radio off.



THANK YOU!!!
