The wiring part is easy - it plugs into a wiring harness inside a rubber boot under the seat. Do you also have the mounting bracket for the CD changer? That's the crucial part that helps protect your unit from bumps!Punchie said:Just located a stock CD changer for my bike. It didn't have one installed when new. Is the bike hard wired for the changer or is there more involved than plug and go?
Actually, if you take the 'line out' signal out of the base of the iPod, via an EC iPod harness or similar device, as opposed to the earphone jack signal, you get a much cleaner signal, so that the difference between a CD player and an iPod is not nearly as noticeable, especially at highway speeds.FastFreddie said:I had the cd changer installed on my 04. The first season it started to give the infamous Mech error messages. My dealer swapped it out and this one (where's the wood) has worked flawlessly since. As to why would one want one ... the fidelity on a cd is much better than an MP3 or other substitute.
even if free.... buy an MP3 player. You can find cheap ones many places. My first I used for a couple years was $29!! Now I upgraded to a $65 one! Sweeet. If used on battery (AAA lasts for 15 hours) you won't need any power source filter (alternator wine).Punchie said:Just located a stock CD changer for my bike. It didn't have one installed when new.
