Had one in the side box (stand side) - worked quite well.

Less bounce - closer to COG. the one I had was NOT hard mounted, but instead wrapped in some foam padding.

mount it where you dont need the space.. in my case, i mainly use the trunk for storage so i would install in on the side bags.

and since the bike leans over the left side, that side bag is harder to reach than right, so when i come to the need of extra space i use the right side :p just in case you were wondering which side to mount :D

Just curious as to why the multi-disc cd player instead of an MP3 player? I have a 4 gig MP3 player and the amount of music storage is for all practical purposes unlimited. If I ever get it 'full' I can remove some songs that I no longer want and replace them with newer songs.I must say that the sound output from the speakers on my bike issomewhat 'anemic'however I do have very good sound to two helmets with J&M helmet speakers.

Mine's mounted in the garage!. When I got my GL1500 it had a Kenwood 6 CD changer in the left pannier. It took up valuable luggage space, (we do a couple of 2 up continental trips a year). I now have one of those cheap little MP3 + FM transmitters, (about £15 off ebay) plugged into a lighter socket in one of the small storage boxes in front of the top box.

It works great and I've put a small switch on the left handlebar switch block to power it on and off. Mine starts from the beginning of the last song it was playing when you power it up.



I've got hundreds of songs on it.........................Steve

Multichangers take up valuble space, mp3 or ipod is the way to go, I ues an fm transmitter, nothing easier, I have a thousand songs on my ipod, and its crystal clear, no interference, on bike or car , and I have used it all over Europe

I Have a Blackberry 8330 phone, bought an 8gig micro SD card, and have an unbelievable amount of music on it. I also have the 4 gig that I filled up and then replaced with the 8 gig, and ALSO have the 1gig card from my previous phone. That's hooked up to the bike with an 1/8" stereo plug in the headphone jack. Sounds great, and I could ride around the country and not hear the same song twice.
