Wiring for rear speakers and speaker pods
Now that we have some lighting details out of the way, here is some info on getting your rear speakers to work and what you will need for wiring. The speaker pod kit comes with the bass ports so these directions are for running your speaker wires inside the tourpak, thru the ports and not outside the tourpak, exposed to the weather and passenger. On the list of parts you will see the speaker pod kit HD#76000505. It actually comes with the harness that runs between the 2 speakers and the harness that goes up to the fairing and plugs into the radio. Because I was unsure if the harness that plugs into the stereo was part of the kit(and the dealer did not know, again) I ordered one off EBay. That number is HD# 69200489(I have an extra going up for sale soon). As I stated in another post, before you put this harness under the tank, tape your power wire for the amplifier to it(trust me, you will want an amp after you hear 4 speakers and how weak they are). The picture shows the harness with the red power wire for the amp attached to it. You will connect it to the Y-harness that plugs into the 2 rear speakers. That Y-harness will go on top of the metal plate in the bottom of the tourpak, tape it down just like the light harness underneath. Also, take the plug off and run the wire thru the grommet you will put in the bottom of the tourpak.
Here is where you may get a little aggravated but you will need to drill a hole in the shifter side bottom of the tourpak for a grommet to go in. The grommet can be the same size as the one used for the lights, HD#11447. Make sure you measure the diameter of the area between the 2 flanges on the outside of the grommet to get the drill size for your hole. As far as locating the hole, I marked it just at the front edge of the metal plate on the shifter side and then pulled the plate out and took the tourpak off the rack. Put tape over the outside area you are drilling so you don't pop a bunch of paint off the outside of the tourpak. Before putting the plate back in, take a grinder and make a U-shaped area where the wiring comes up thru the grommet so it will not hit the plate(and make sure you de-burr it good). Look at pictures and see what I did, and do that. Clean all shavings out of tourpak and put grommet in and re-install bottom plate and install tourpak on mounting rack. Pull wires down thru grommet and then put plug back on the wires on the outside of the tourpak. Tape the speaker harness in the tourpak down so it will not rub around. Run plugs for speakers over and into each of the bass adapters and connect to speakers after you get tourpak mounted on bike.
