Cool J&M Rokker XT/AMP instal along with IPOD interface

OK, so i just finished the speaker and amp install. The process was not too bad. hardest part was getting the darn fuel tank off and running the wire harnesses. So I got the factory wire harness buttoned back and tank back on. and had to test the stereo out. WOW!!! what a huge difference in sound. Crisp, clear sound and LOUD!! Soo glad I went with J&M over the BOOM. Definitely a MOD well worth it. Although now I'm gonna have to spend more money to get all gauge and radio faceplate lighting to match. That will go on the wish list.

So now I'm trying to install the Boom Ipod Interface. I have the modual mounted on top of the HK radio and now I'm stuck! I don't have a service manual and dealer can't get one in till next week. I'm not sure what pins are what? Read through some forums on here and HD forums and saw some good write ups with pics but I'm still unsure on the numbering of the pins. thinking about just putting the fairing back on and have dealer do it. Anyone have any advice??

More pics of install and finished look up front. Notice how the AMP mounts to the side of the HK radio on the RGU.

J&M Rokker XT/AMP instal along with IPOD interface

The PIN numbers are marked on the front side of the connector. You can see them after you unplug the connector.

If you don't have the instructions, you can find them here: http://www.harley-davidson.com//en_U...ersion=desktop

Update

OK so AMP and speaker install is done. For those that are still undecided on speaker upgrade I will say this. FOR THE PRICE, you CAN NOT beat the sound of the ROKKERs. Also John from J&M is a top notch guy and his customer service is outstanding. If you have any questions as to what set up is right for your ride just drop him an email and he will email you back and tell you what you need.
I found that easternperformance currently has the best prices on the J&M's and they ARE an authorized retailer. They too have quick shipping and a top notch customer service department.

I decided to wait on wiring the IPOD interface untill I can get ahold of a service manual to make sure i get it wired right. I plan on routing the IPOD into the left upper compartment so I ordered the CVO RG compartment liners and am waiting for them to come in. Once I have everything in order I will update the thread with install and finished pics.

Angry Update

Decided to go back out and attempt the Ipod interface wiring. After reading through some great threads here and on HD forums and a lil help from a fellow forum member here I was able to get it all wired up. [thanks for the help BklynRGU and JayKS]. I chose not to run the Ipod to my saddlebag because I didn't want to spend the extra cash for the additional cable and pouch nor did I want to drill through the bag. I ended up running it to the left side compartment.

Attempted to put the fairing back on this evening and had some trouble. I finally removed the headlights to make sure I got the fairing on the hooks and am still having issues with the side tabs lining up. Messed with the darn thing for 2 hrs! Double checked the wiring harnesses to ensure they were all tied up tight. I did notice some inprints on the accustic foam pad that came with the speakers so I'm wondering if that it what is causing the problem. Called it quits for the day and I will try again tomorrow.

Will post the pics of the IPOD interface install tomorrow as well.

Final update

Ok,
Figured out that I needed to move the AMP bracket up as far as it would go in order for it to clear the fairing. I also ended up shaving off some of the foam padding. Not a big deal. Was my fault I didnt have the padding lined up right.

Install pics

Here is the 35 pin wire harness from the HK radio. Notice the little white pins with no wires. That is where the wires from the Ipod Y cable go.
