HOLLY HILL, FL (03.14.22) – Saddle Tramp by Metra Electronics has added new products to their inventory designed to upgrade 1998-2013 Harley-Davidson Road Glide models. This new line of products features a replacement inner fairing for riders who want to upgrade the sound system and install a modern aftermarket Double-DIN radio, as well as accompanying products that complement the fairing. Saddle Tramp has also introduced a new amp bracket kit to fit 2014-up Harley-Davidson Street Glide models. These new products are available now for shipping and are designed to help installers deliver upgraded, fully customizable sound systems with less time and labor spent in the install bay.
The 95-HDIF2 Harley-Davidson Road Glide FLT/Sharknose fairing is a replacement inner fairing designed to fit almost any 4-inch tall Double-DIN radio into 1998-2013 Harley-Davidson Road Glide FLT models. This product allows for the upgrading of the stock radio to a model with a display screen for modern radio technology like Apple CarPlay and Android audio. These motorcycles come from the factory able to accommodate only a smaller 2-inch tall Single-DIN radio. This customization kit comes with the radio mounting hardware and speaker plates in three different sizes; 6.5-inch, 6×9-inch, and a blank plate so that you can add the speaker size of your choice. The fairing is painted high-gloss black but can be custom painted if desired, and it retains all of the original gauges on the motorcycle. Like all of Metra’s radio installation kits, it is constructed with durable ABS plastic and designed to match the factory look and feel for a sleek upgrade that will withstand the elements.
The BC-HDSWC-WR Harley-Davidson Handlebar Control allows installers to replace the radio in a motorcycle, while retaining the use of the factory handlebar audio controls. This easy-to-install interface uses a patented Auto-Detect system to configure itself for the specific motorcycle application and aftermarket radio being installed. The interface provides wires for front speakers, constant power, switched power and ground, and includes a water-resistant enclosure. This product works with the 95-HDIF2 Harley-Davidson Road Glide FLT/Sharknose fairing featured above. It can be made to work with all models by pairing with Metra’s BC-9725 Amp Bypass Harness.
The BC-9711 Harley-Davidson Rear Speaker Harness allows riders to easily upgrade the sound system in their motorcycles. It fits nicely into the 95-HDIF2 Harley-Davidson Road Glide FLT/Sharknose fairing. This harness will keep your factory rear speakers playing, with plug-n-play ease, using factory Molex connectors. Constructed with 18-gauge oxygen-free copper for the best possible conductivity and audio performance.
The BC-AMP05 Harley-Davidson Road Glide FLT Amp Mounting Plate installs inside the front fairing and can be mounted to the clutch or brake side of the main fairing mounting bolts. Mounting plate, hook and loop pad, and cable ties are included in the package. The mounting plate is black powder-coated steel with slots around the outside edge which can be used to secure the wiring for the amplifier with the supplied cable ties. This mounting plate is small enough to fit into the limited space within fairings and should be paired with a micro amp. We recommend amps that are 4.5”W x 8”L x 1.5”H, as noted in the included instructions. This product is compatible with the 95-HDIF2 Harley-Davidson Road Glide FLT/Sharknose replacement fairing.
In addition to the BC-AMP05 mounting plate, Saddle Tramp also has a new amp mounting plate for Harley-Davidson Street Glide motorcycles; the BC-AMP06. This product is installed on top of the OE radio tray and reuses the factory bolts. The kit includes a hook and loop pad and cable ties. The mounting plate is black powder-coated steel with slots around the outside edge which can be used to secure the wiring for the amplifier with the supplied cable ties. Original fairings on these motorcycle models offer adequate space for aftermarket amps.
