I have a 05 goldwing and have purchased the polk db501 5" speakers to replace my stock front speakers with. No problem removing grills and dash or notching the cover to get at the corner screw holding speaker in. Problem came when the new speaker bolt hole pattern is way to small for the bike's bolt hole pattern. Help!! did I get the wrong speakers?

I believe that you need to cut the very tip off of the mounting tab and use a small fender washer to overlap and mount speaker in place. Cut just the piece that closes off the end of the mounting tab...you'll have to do this on all four mounting tabs...

:agree:

The metal is thin and soft...I just used a pair of tin snips then flattened the metal back out with pliers. No big thing...add a washer and you are good to go.
