I mounted my car type radio/CD/MP3 input stereo in the left fairing pocket under the snap down cover. A little custom work with ABS plastic and ABS glue , works like a charm,and stays dry too.

I picked up a marine (boat) radio on ebay..Pyle I believe with wired remote..Mounted it in the left saddle bag and mounted the remote to the left handle bar.. Wired directly into the existing speakers. The marine model is obviously water resistant and resist CD skipping as designed to deal with some bumpy conditions.. It also was adapted to installing "On End" Shotgunner

My PO had put one in the left pocket, but not well and I like storage, so I removed it and put speakers into the inside of the fairing and getting a marine enclosure and mounting it above the instrument set. Wiring is no problem, tap into the rats nest that is in there and clean it up.

Now, to cover the space where the factory radio mounts, I got a scrap piece of ABS from TAP Plastics and cut it to fit the face of the lower opening and use that area for driving light switches, indicator lamps, etc.

Oh, BTW, my stereo is a $39 no CD one with 50 Watts per channel. Has SD and USP plugs so no need for a CD mechanism to mess up. The case comes with a flip up face, but I took it off for ease of access.

One really nice thing is that I don't have to lean forward to adjust, it's right at arms length.

bcassel, I like the braces that are added to your radio. I'll have to make some.
Mine bounces quite a bit on the rough roads. I added a L - bracket under the radio that adds some upward pressure to help with the shaking but it is not enough.

Made thre braces from aluminum strap and hit them with flat black paint. Nice and stable also give a place to hang an eyeglass case
