DIY Stereo Install help

I am installing a SONY DSX-MS60 in my 15 RG. Do i have to buy a connector to be able to still use the handlebar controls? Every one that I find is for 2013 and below I cant find anything for the 2015 RG.

If Biketronics doesn't make one it probably does not exist yet.

Yes, you will need a module to enable function of the handlebar controls. You can use an inexpensive one and be frustrated (think Metra) or you can bite the bullet and get a complete kit that does exactly what you want. However, the Biketronics stuff is pricey;

Have you already purchased the head unit, mounting brackets etc.? Are you upgrading the speakers and adding an AMP as well?

Those might seem like irrelevant questions, but I'm asking because it would help to know your end game.

While an aftermarket head unit is something a lot of folks do, it's not usually one of the first audio upgrades. Adding upgraded speakers and an AMP paired with the factory head unit often gives results that most everyone is happy with.

Nice

You'll definitely want the Biketronic's 2014+ installation kit then. It comes with all you need to install and have everything functional afterwards. Double check for compatibility with the stereo that you've chose.

Good luck.

Hawgwired used to have interfaces for Sony products to interface with the controls. They may be another option.

There is another company supplying a 'full kit' with hand controls and takes care of the digital display you will lose access to.... SoundzCustomz has a complete kit with digital display for you EITMS and oil PSI and I believe will take care of the security flashing on your dash caused by removing the factory HU....


This kit is also for the Road Glides.. even though they talk only of the batwings... I called them...
