inner fairing mods

Hi everyone,
I am going to purchace a 1-off creations inner fairing(4speaker holes) and was curious if anyone else has made this purchace. It has a double din insert for a monitor. I am concearned about weather resistant equipment when considering my purchases of audio and video setups. Was hoping to get some feedback and input on inner fairing mods alsong with audio and video input. I get caught in the rain not soften than not and this would be a big issue for me since I would be spending quite a bit on this modification.

Thank you.

I don't have experience with any of the double DIN equipment, but I agree that they have to be designed to be water resistant/proof (unless your bike is strictly a sunny day bike, which your's obviously isn't). You may want to check to see what's available for "marine" use.

Heres my opinion and take it how you will.

What the hell do you need a double din video player for on a motorcycle? Does it do you any good wwhile riding? Your just adding a distraction to yourself while riding and more than likely going to cause yourself to get into an acccident.

Don't we all want out bike to be unique. Seperate from another. Thats why there are so many options out there isn't it? Isn't that why we all go to those bike nights, to show off our ride and check out the different and unique mods everyone is doing now a days. It comes with a single din, double din, and iPad mini option. I don't see what it would hurt to have the space filled and get the double din. Myself and most people I know just plug in an iPod and play music when the ride. It's just for looks and display options. It's not like I'm going to be watching dvds while I'm riding.

If I had the money I would do it in a second. 1 off seems to make some nice stuff. Alpine and Pioneer make some quality units that would fit in the double din category. I'm sure at this point a company like sidecar cycles makes a splash guard for rain protection. I think forum member torqu just did a double din in his fairing. Do a search for him. Otherwise choppedbaggers.com has more of the creative expensive fairings on that site. You may want to check them out. Lots of people have different inners on that site..

How about a double din Navigation screen? Or how about just another way to see your radio display better. The HK display is junk.

Id love to see pics of this when it's done. Right on!

I have been looking around and seen a few different threads. I'll look into those company's and see what I can decide on. Thank you for the input.

Couldn't agree more. When I decide to pull the trigger on this project I'll be sure to post my progress. Thank you.

Exactly why i said take it as you will. My bikes a riders bike. The stereo in it is fine as i have it (although I do want go add an amp and a set of 6.5s for more definition of sound). I dont care about show when its parked because more often than not when Im stopped its for an hour or so while i eat and plan our next route. Guess Im just old school.
