Help yet again, I need to replace my speakers as I can hear nothing, I read the posts on what size and kind. I have the hondaline fairing and clarion speakers, how do the covers come off? The bike currently has a broken antennae hooked up and stuck in the fairing pocket. i would like to put it on the trunk like I had on my 1500 and 1000. Where would I get the antennae, long enough cable and mounting bracket? I would like a dual bracket as I intend to add a CB.

Is the bracket for the mirrors mounted to the fairing behind the speakers? My right side just flops, Thanks again folks. I just wanna ride again. Thanks to THIS site, I am.

This is for my 83 Aspy but it should be the same for you:

To work on the speakers and the mirrors (and a bunch of other things as well) you need to take off the front signal lights. Then you should be able to see four brass wing nuts which hold on the speaker enclosures. Depending upon what electronic equipment is installed there are up to 9 fuses accessible through the left signal light opening.

If you buy new speakers check the mounting depth. About 2 1/4" is the max. Many on this site replace the OEM's with 4" two-way speakers from Wal-Mart

I bought my antenna from eBay. Different years have different rear mounts so it's wise to check. And various suppliers also sell antenna parts. Do a search on eBay and on this site..

If you add a CB the advice on this site is that the combo antenna works better than two singles.

The mirrors should come off when you remove the two mounting screws. They use special nuts on the inside of the faring which sometimes turn in their bases so you may need a wrench to loosen/tighten them. There is a screw in the lower part of the arm which can be (carefully) tightened. If it's the mirror head that's loose you may need to take it to a glass shop. Do a search on this site. Again, they're also available on eBay but I haven't heard anything good about them
