Radio Upgrade?

Will a 2006 or newer OEM radio work in my 03 Roadglide?
Will I have to change the speakers to 2 ohm? vs 8 ohm?

The short answer is no. Wiring harness is different. The long answer would be with a lot of work, patience,and electrical manuals.....maybe. If you were to be able to swap, you would also need to change speakers. Probably be better to go with an aftermarket upgrade. Plenty have had experience with this, and I know they will chime in and help. Which is one reason why I love this place!

you could make it work by doing wiring and changing speakers.

JMO I would opt for an aftermarket radio, bigger amp, better sound,
USB port for MP3 etc

Check here for some options, but do some research there are several
options

Thanks that is the answer I came up with but wanted to be sure.
Aftermarket would be best in my case.
