Started out today cleaning out the garage to make some room to work on the 9. Pulled all the bikes out, started straightening out, throwing out shyt not needed. I bought this kick as lil propane heater from Home Depot, holy cow does this thing put out. Made for working in the garage nice and toasty.


OK, now the first project. I ordered a Shark Audio kit last Sat. Showed up at the house on Tues. OK so I know some of you won't like it, that's ok. It is my bike. I like having tunes and we have these on our Sabres and love them. The speakers are a bit on the big size, and not being much room on the h/b's, I was limited to what I can do. I bought some Kuryakyn chrome h/b brackets to mount the speakers. Used them before, worked out nice.

So here is the mount on the h/b



Next, mounted the speakers



Then mounted the amp


Ran all the wiring along the frame under the tank then up though neck covers and on up to the h/b's




I still need to come up w/ a plan to mount the control unit. Here's a short clip of it.


Over all, I'm pretty happy w/ how it turned out.

You know Bernie, I love you like a brother, however...I have to rethink this whole riding together thing. I will talk to the group and do a vote to see if you are welcome. you are ruining the look of that sexy ass bike. Take out the Sabre on days you need tunes. :p

LOL Harris, I knew you'd love the look. Haha, yeah they may be just a lil over powering. I thought they'd be smaller. Have to see if I can find somethin a lil less conspicuous. :a20:

Ok so I'm 1 for 3 on the day.

You have no idea. It was what, 30* out there today. It was 75 in there in about 10 minutes. I had to turn it off I was so damn hot. And that was w/ it set on low. Yeah baby, winter projects won't be a problem this year. :bigthumbsup:

Bernie, they are a little big, I think they would look better closer to the handle bar, but that's me. I love the tunes while I ride too, so as long as you like it they are fine by me bro.

Now that being said they do remind me of some JATO rockets :joke:

That's a nice wiring job Bernie, really neat. :bigthumbsup:

I think I'd make another cover for those so they look like gun sights. Then you can go down the road making rat-a-tat noises while pretending to gun down other bikes. Maybe even record the sound so you won't have to do it yourself. :D

I agree, but there is only so much you can do w/ the brackets they come with and the master cylinder on the right side.

Damn it, I knew that would happen. Sorry Randal, I love your bike but I had to go w/ my local boy.

Side note, I am now wearing one of these so it's all good.

Bernie now you need to mount a 9" SubWoofer under your seat Bro! Your slacking!!!!! LOL

Hey if you want speakers....then you want speakers. Like you said its "your" bike. Mount a satellite dish and a coffee pot on the thing if thats what floats your boat. The speakers chrome finish at least goes with all the chrome on the bike. :bigthumbsup:

There's only one lonewolf and you ain't it!:D
From the front those speakers look like KC highlights mounted backwards. Have you ever heard of an I-pod and some headphones? We've got em down here and I bet ya'll got em up there too!:joke:
I like the heater! Why not mount it on a solo rack?:dontknow:
