Is there somewhere that I can get instructions for removing enough fairing to replace my radio with an after market radio, and I also have segments missing on my Digital dash and was told by a forum member that sometimes CLEANING the back side of the board CAN help, the PO lived on a gravel road and it was 6 miles to the closest hard surface road, I cleaned DUST fron the Fabric seats and nooks and crannys for DAYS after I got it, I PRAY that my digital works again after cleaning.

Thank You Very Much

Go to the "Reference/FAQ" page of the forum and down-load one of the free manuals. There should be enough data there to get you started.



My current wing is an Interstate and didn't come with any audio. I had to remove the the shield, headlight,covers for speaker areas and both fairing pockets to mount up a bracket for an automotive stereo.



Your radio should come out with just a turn of the key. It would be a lot easier to have yours repaired, unless you're wanting to upgrade to higher power or Ipod/MP3 input. Good luck :gunhead:

There's not really a step-by-step guide for what you want to do. However, lots of forum members have upgraded their radios with new SD card-reading units.

Start by removing the mirrors, then the windshield garnish, then the windshield, then the speakers, then the instrument cover, then the headlight.

There are 4 nuts, 2 behind the headlight and 2 inside the fairing that hold the guage/radio cluster in.

Once you get it loose you can disassemble everything for cleaning and figure out how to run the wiring for the new radio.

First time is a bear. Keep an extension magnet with you at all times. Be patient and pay attention to details. You'll have fun.

Think of it this way...if a certified Honda tech can do it...it can't be all that hard.
