I haven't installed this kit in my CCT yet. But I have read a few posts about the instructions not mentioning using the 12VDC cigarette lighter in the fairing as the power source. Also to connect to that power source before installing the drivers left/installers right 'volume'. Otherwise known as a speaker enclosure.

Thank you to all those who pointed this out.

I can scan the instructions that came with my kit (last week) and email them to you as a pdf if you like. Just send me a private message on this forum and I'll get them to you.

If anyone else needs the instructions just let me know. I have them saved as a pdf. The instructions that came with my kit last week are labeled Rev 02 11/14. I have no idea if there's a later version.

But I think the step some people are having issue with is step 25e on page 8. They tell you to "Locate constant power from the right hand side aluminum fairing frame and connect Power In.". This must be the Installer's Right or the Rider's Left. From reading posts by others, they're talking about pigging backing off the 12VDC cigarette lighter power supply in the fairing. I'll try to connect to that prior to installing the Right Speaker Volume, which I call the speaker cabinet.

All the best,

Mark

I got about 90% through my extreme audio fairing kit installation tonight. I slowed myself down a bit by also installing the painted inner dash I bought a few months ago. In hindsight, I should have left the inner dash off until I mounted the two main speakers. Getting to one of the mounting screws was a real hassle. Even with a ball end 4mm allen wrench.

Plea for assistance: If anyone finds the person or persons responsible for designing in the two screws under and in back of the center lower fairing section please kick them very hard in each shin. Then publicly name the person or persons so others may also join in publicly shaming them.

I agree with those who say the instructions are pretty poor. My audio kit harness connections aren't labeled at all. I'm not sure which original 'speaker in' wires, right side or left, go to which audio kit harness connections. Hopefully I'll be able to figure that out by looking at the wiring diagram. But the original speaker connection wire colors don't match the audio kit's harness anyway. The connections on the audio kit's harness that goes to the original amp, the new speaker enclosures, the 12VDC connections and the Gray GPS connections are all easy to figure out. But not which side of the original speaker connection wires goes to which audio kit harness connection. If anyone knows, please post it.

Yes, the 12VDC power connection is a real pain. The audio kit's wiring harness simply isn't long enough for me to run it under the right speaker box to the back of the 12VDC cigarette lighter. It couldn't go over the top because it's not long enough for that either. It also can't go in between the speaker enclosure and the aluminum fairing mount structure. If I ran it in between, the speaker enclosure mounting screw and the 4 speaker mounting screws wouldn't line up due to the harness pushing it out too far. So what I'm doing is running two separate wires to the 12DVC connection, one black and one gray just like the original wires. I'm running those two wires along the bottom of the speaker enclosure and then routing them through an access hole in the aluminum fairing mount structure. Now I need to connect the four Gray wires to each other and the four black wires to each other. I don't have the right connections so I'll finish it up tomorrow afternoon.

I knew you couldn't use both the factory XM radio and the factory HID headlight with this audio kit. But I wasn't sure that you also can't use the factory integrated GPS mount either. The GPS gray connection is also used by the fairing audio kit. I never bought the Victory GPS mount but I did remove my factory XM radio. I'm keeping with the factory HID headlight system as I like it quite well. The factory XM radio has been sold to a local CCT owner.

All the best,

Mark

I found no time where I needed a voltmeter with this installation. I've had and used them for decades but one shouldn't be needed for this. Unless you want to ensure you didn't blow the 20AMP mini ACC fuse for some reason. But under normal conditions, no multimeter is needed to install this system.

What is needed is to identify the Right and Left wire colors to ensure proper connections are made from the original harness to the new harness. Polaris didn't see the need to label any of the connections on the new harness. So I simply had to compare the original wire colors with the new audio harness wire colors. Pretty simple and straightforward but hopefully this will help others save time and frustration: https://www.victoryforums.com/34-vict...ml#post2362554

It sounds great and makes me anxious to install the Saddlebag Extreme Audio kit next.

I found two major issues with the instructions. As already identified, connect the power first, then put the speaker baffle in on the left side (driver's view in the saddle), and... The picture of the mounting of the amp for the bracket over the radio module is wrong. You have to make sure the connector points towards the power outlet side, or the harness isn't going to make it.

Generally I'm happy with the results though.. And yeah, mine was a bit easier as I did the painted dash at the same time, so old dash off, kit in, new dash on.
