7.25 Performance Series in RGC

WOW! Says it all. The speaker upgrade alone is fantastic. I wasn't completely convinced that speakers alone would make a big difference and figured I would have to buy an amp as well. I still might because "too much is never enough". And I havn't gone for a test ride yet, but the garage test blew me away on how much it is improved.
I just need J&M customer service to call me back and tell me how to orient these acoutic pads. The instructions show the old style pads and the ones I have are the new style are shaped differently and have cutouts. Wondering what in the world those are for. John?

I just installed the new style pads and the cutouts seem to give spkr. magnets more clearance. I put the radius of the pad up against headlight housing and pressed in for a crease where the farring bends up above middle line. They do make a noticable difference. The amp WILL make a much Bigger difference. Enjoy the sickness!!

Thanks concreteman. I installed with the norrow end with radius against the headlight, cutout to the rear, with the bottom of the pad just above the bottom "bend" or transition line in the fairing. I should have taken a picture.... dang it! Went on a road test tonight and VIOLA! I could actually hear my radio at 75 mph. Now I'm thinking "how much better would it be with an amp?"

So much better that it will make you start thinking about more spkrs. another amp, larger motor, 21 front wheel, painted inner fairing, gauge mods, and a WHOLE bunch of other mods!! I CANT wait for my 21 front to be ready! Now I gotta save up for fork mods. See a trend? Anyway amp and rockers make my ride even more enjoyable! Enjoy the sickness!!

Sorry bout that CHI_TOWN. I just get carried away and can't stop. But there are several detailed videos made by J&M themselves. Check out their website.
