04 speakers

I'm sure this in the forum someplace but I could not find it. I am not what you call audio savy. The situation I have is my 04 with 8 ohm speaker has a blown speaker. A Brother was nice enough to give me his take offs. But they are from a newer bike and are 2 ohm. My question is can I use them on my 04 RG?

If the radio that you have is designed for 8 ohm speakers, then replacing with 2 ohm speakers will place significant load on the radio. You will overwork the amplifier section of the radio and it will either cut itself off a lot or burn itself up. I would not try this.
