I was hoping someone could tell me what each of the wires coming out of the factory radio is for, so I'll have an idea on what to hook up to my aftermarket radio. Thanks in advance.

Well, like most things I do, I just jumped in and did it. Got the old multimeter out and went to town. Since I wasn't worried retaining the function of my handlebar controls, all I wanted to find was 12VDC constant, 12VDC switched, and GND, which wasn't that hard. Now the good part. IT WORKS. I put in a Sirius ready JVC receiver, mostly because it has a front panel input, and the Polk DB525 speakers that seem to be pretty popular here on VTF. So, for $250 I now have a HOT stereo setup that blows the factory H-D system WAYYYY out of the water. I don't have to use an FM modulator for my iPod anymore, and I couldn't be happier. Even better, I didn't have to pay someone to do it. If anyone needs help, I'll try to offer all I can.
