Nobody likes Old Speakers, replace them with new Premium Models

   One of the greatest things about motorcycling is the ability to pop your favorite road mix into your sound system, crank it up, and ride. It can be a great way to get in the groove, put the miles on, and clear your head. As with everything, time and the elements take their toll on your stereo, slowly degrading performance. With the season getting ready to start up for most of us, it is the perfect time to shop for replacements or upgrades from K and G Cycles (  As we all know, the stock speakers aren’t the best so I will show you some great alternatives that will prove to be an improvement for your ears.
 cs speaker fairing-01   To begin with, we will look at Cycle Sounds 5 1/4″ Series 4 Speakers (Part # CN21200143). Designed to be direct drop in replacements, these speakers significantly improve bass response, mid-range clarity, volume,  and overall dynamic range even while cruising at highway speeds. Cycle Sounds upgrade speakers fit Harley-Davidson touring models perfectly and feature a plug-and-play design using the OEM terminal connectors. These speakers use a standard mounting pattern allowing these replacement upgrade speakers to bolt directly in the stock locations without the need for adapters on most bikes. This version fits 1998-2005 Touring Class bikes that have the factory batwing fairing. Once you have swapped the speakers, you won’t believe your ears and just how much of an improvement these new speakers really are.
