I just did the very same thing......and my bike is still at the shop cause we still have 100 feet of snow here lololol. but I'm good with my decision. Whats good about having a HD dealer do the install......this is all covered under your warranty as well.
The stage II is OUTSTANDING. I had the amp and speakers installed, rode around Daytona for a week in various conditions and speeds and can tell you the radio, yes the radio sounded terrific. I did have the J&M in fairing antenna installed and it seemed to make all the difference in the word. My iPod music was perfect.
My local dealer got very competitive with online pricing and a fair labor rate so I purchased locally and had them do the install.
NOW LET ME TELL YOU WHAT HAPPENED NEXT......
So I drop the bike off to have the stereo and amp installed and the parts guys is telling me they're having a service special on front end work. He tells me that if I put chrome forks on he'll install them for free (a $300 savings). I then say, since you're going that far and everything is off the bike, how much to put chrome wheels on. He says total labor $48 bucks. I ask him to match online pricing, he does. Walked out of the dealership several thousand dollars poorer and couldn't be happier.
