Why are the stock H-K units so expensive on eBay?

And what do people do with them? Just wondering as I plan on pulling mine and throwing it on there. Hope to get what others are getting for theirs.

Dont forget, asking and sold prices are two different prices. Although i too have wondered why they sell for so much used when everybody replaces them with aftermarket head units. Maybe its to recover some money spent on the amps and speakers that they replace them with

Not everyone replaces their stock HK with an aftermarket radio. The Hk have the best visibility in my opinion. I think I sold mine for 350.

Out of curiosity what did you replace the HK with when you sold it?

HD came out with a new Hamon Kardon radio in 2006. Your 2005 Harmon Kardon is not a desireable radio for anyone that has a 2006 and later touring model. You may want to keep what you have or upgrade.

you know you can do a search on ebay for completed listings don't you? that way you can see exactly how many sold, and for how much.

yours being so old, you are going to have a very limited target audience. you've got to find someone with a 2005 or older bike whose radio died and they are looking to replace it with oem instead of aftermarket.

oh, and it isn't a harmon kardon unit. the older units were made by radio sound.

unless of course, you have another bike that is not listed in your sig.

i wish you luck

I understand the concept of reality, but find it too confining for a way of life.

I bought a Sony for mine. I guess I'll throw mine on there and see what kind of bites I get.

I removed mine from my 03 and put in a glove box. The radio sucks and I listen to my mp3 through my GPS via my Sena intercom. Also removed my amp to give me more room on the TP. Never thought of selling it.

I do the same think, but with a J&M Headset. I also have XM on the GPS, and my iPhone works great thru it as well. I put this together after replacing the HK with a Sony. Now, next time the fairing comes off, the HK is going back in, and the Sony will be sold. Reason? The HK has a better clock display That is all I use the radio for anymore.
