Not that hard, you can use an HD radio tape or CD(expensive), or you could put in an aftermarket radio, I would suggest a marine radio because of moisture.
Where did you read this?bagger2 said:Have read that a Kenwood KDC-719 CD sterio radio with the optional steering wheel control will work. All of the handle bar controls [if your ride has them] will work with the radio.
It was a product sold by Best Buy. The lead installer showed to me. It is intended for hooking up to a car's steering wheel radio controls. Don't know who makes it.HarleyJoel said:Where did the "black box" come from? Best Buy, Harley, or an aftermarket dealer. Where can I get one?
Are you sure that you want someone from Bestbuy tearing your bike apart?nlallas said:
$60 for the "black box" plus another $30 to install. This was additional to the cost to install radio and speakers.
I hear you. Somebody besides me wil be installing.Straydog said:

Yes the black box is only an interface.watamix said:Sounds to me like the "black box" is just an interface between your handlebar controls and the unit's steering wheel control connections.
The thing I'm wondering is, what about the physical size of the auto radio, compared with the original H-D radio? Does someone make a mounting panel to make the auto radio fit perfectly in there?
Also, what about the cd players in the auto stereos?
Won't they skip quite a bit with the vibration of a bike, as compared with the ride of an auto, for which they're designed?
