hey guys looking for an idea to coiunter installing the aftermarket radio directly to a rigid mount or fairing. Does anyone know of a rubber mounting system or any ideas on what to use.



I thought a rigid box (metal/ wood) and slide the aftermarket radio in wrapped in foam rubber.

You are definitely on your own replacing the Type III with aftermarket however the owners of interstates find ways of mounting.
Most of the aftermarket radios are bigger than the stock and stick out further to the front so they use Stereo Radio Bezel

AS far as supporting the rear you might rest it on some rigid foam

I am recieving a cd player but it has an auxillary, I will never use the cd because I no longer own any.


I thought that the vibration may cause problems. The stock radio/tape deck was ruber mounted. Hey tinma since it seems you may be the only person who agress with me installing an aftermarket radio , do you have any tips. Did you just eliminate all the acc plugs. I think I should get rid of all except ant, ground, power, acc power and 4 speaker wires. Is this correct????

I had a AM FM CD on my 82 1100 I made by jensen mounted in cycle sound mount. No problems did skip when i hit big bump but a friend has a 08 1800 and his will also skip. The best thing i found was a mp3/ipod setup or sat radio

Tricky:



Do you know how much further this Stereo Radio Bezel sticks out from the Cycle Sound mount? Does it give more depth than the standard knob bezel? In other words, if a guy simply cut his existing knob style bezel to allow the installation of the DIN CD/Radio, would he end up with the same thing as this Stereo Radio Bezel?
