Rear speaker wiring

Newbie here, I plan to add a king tour pack to my 04 RG. I also want rear speakers. My questions is does the 04 RG come stock with the rear speaker wiring pre ran. There is a plug that doesn't go to anything I think on the left side of the seat kinda hidden. Is that it?

Harley did sell a Factory Ultra Style rear Speaker Kit (77149-98) for use on FLTR models 1998-2005. But it has been discontinued. You should be able to find a dealer that still has it, if you look around. An old Accessory Catalog states that to use this required separate purchase of an Overlay harness (70160-02) on '02-'05 FLTR Models that were standard on '98-'01. And check eBay for the kit.

Also, you were required to send your radio into the Factory to have the CB and Intercom Upgrade at an additional cost. One thing you also could do is to find an Ultra Radio (76146-04) that already has the rear speaker outputs already installed. This is the CD radio that you have on your year model. If you want to down grade to Cassette, find the 76146-98 Ultra radio.

Or you can go to the aftermarket companies and use their rear speaker amps to add the speakers.

As for the plug, I believe that is the light plug for the Tour Pak, not speakers.

The bike I bought didn't come with a tour pack, but the hardware is there so I am hoping the last guy DID have a tour pack with speakers which would leave me with the harness still in place so I can add my own tour pack with speakers. I'll be doing some research I guess. I know it has the factory radio with the CD player. But are you saying the factory radio was only set up to drive the two fairing mounted speakers? with no "rear" outputs? And if that is the case, can speakers be "piggybacked" off the front speakers wiring as long as they are the same ohm rating, which I think for '04 was 8ohms?

After re-reading your post, are you saying that if I have a CD player (which mine does) that means it has the rear outputs? I really wish I had the CB feature. I'm guessing I don't as I don't see a jack anywhere, but my switch pod has the PTT button. Again I am new so thanks for the advice.

Only the Ultra Radio came wired for rear speakers. As for wiring the rear off the front, the speakers are weak with just front. If you add two more, you will not be happy. If you figure on this, look into an amp kit. They are set up to add rear speakers. J&M or Hogtunes make good amps. You should check Dr.V-Twin for discount prices. They are a sponsor of this forum and give a discount.

I did a google search, and that plug I see stubbed out in the back of my bike looks a lot like the end on this kit I see for sale on ebay right now, so maybe I have it. Maybe I can find a part number tag.

No, only if you have the Ultra radio did you have the rear speaker outputs. If you have the Ultra Radio, you would have two large plugs on the back as well as the CB antenna plug.

Harley included the handlebar switches on the Road Glide until the '10 model year.

If so, you should find a second one on the other side along with the passenger headset plug.

One sure way is to look at the rear of your radio. If you don't have two large plugs, you don't have the speaker outputs.

Since I am planning on painting my inner fairing, I already purchased replacement JM speakers for the fairing. I understand the benefit of an amp, but with this Harley wiring kit, I assume the factory radio will run the front and back decently? Is this the wiring that the after market amps tap into for the rear speakers? I kinda regret buying the speakers on a whim and should have done more homework to come up with a good system. Got that newbie bug to make changes to the new bike. Much thanks for the advice.

Ok, guess I will find out when I get the fairing apart for paint. Thanks again.
