Default cross roads/hardball fairing install answers

I just finished installing the victory fairing on my 2010 cross roads. there is not a lot of information or pictures out there on these. id like to start by letting everyone know I will answer any questions or get any pictures anyone would like.

heres the finished product!


the only reason I didn't get the cross country was to save money, in hindsight I may have done the same thing. I love the way the bike looks, the wind protection is good for me, the radio setup I did works great, best of all, ill never see another like it! I wanted a radio since I got the bike so a couple winters ago I did a marine radio in the saddlebag and bar mounted speakers. I was less than satisfied with the end result. the radio in the bag took up a lot of space, the remote controller for the radio didn't work very good and the little speakers sucked. it was ok around town at best. I needed a fairing to hold some real speakers.

I narrowed my selection to either the victory fairing or the wide open customs one. after looking at the 20 or so pictures out there a million times I decided the wide open fairing sat tilted forward too far. if I would have gone that route I would have left the radio option out and put the tach and speedo in the fairing. I would have also had to make my own brackets to make it sit where I wanted. with all that being said I decided on the victory one, it just fits better in my opinion. I was able to find one on ebay that came off a showroom bike, it had been installed but was new.

as to the radio I did what a lot of the cross country guys seem to be doing and went with a Rockford fosgate PBR300x4 amp. for speakers I did Rockford fosgate 6.5" 2 way speaker with built in crossovers. the fairing is made for 5.25" speakers, they do hang over the edge just a touch. I had already bought the 6.5s and decided to give them a shot, it isn't really noticeable. I powered it all with a 10ga amp wiring kit, and purchased a small round rocker switch with a blue led to match the speedo. I did power the entire thing independently so I do have to turn it on and off. for the input I got a rca to 3.5mm adapter so I could plug my phone into the amp, but needed volume control, and for that I got a rca to rca volume control. I disassembled it and removed the leads so I could solder the adapter and a rca cable to it, the reason for this was to limit connections. so the 3.5mm goes to the volume control, and wires with rcas come out and go directly to the amp. (should've taken pictures)

Default Tach question

I think I read that you installed a tach as well. Is the tach the Victory tach that comes with new bracket to fit speedo as well? I have a 2012 Cross Roads Classic with a Victory fairing and I'm wondering if the tach kit will fit?

Default tach

I have a 2011 Cross Roads. It has the optional tach on it from Victory. I do not have the Victory fairy on it though. I really like having a tach personally I know a lot of people could not care less about it. To me the bikes ought to come standard with the analog tach. The tiny LED tach is about worthless unless you are just checking your idle speed IMO. I do like the tach, when I bought mine it was a $250 option.

VERY nice color. I, too, have the Vic fairing but I bought the Vic stereo kit, too, as I really wanted the handlebar controls. Thanks for the write up.

Ride safe.

The tach fits the hole nice. I thought the opening in the fairing looked like it was too big for just the speedo. It wasn't in the plan but I feel was money well spent for the looks and function.

Looks danged good. One question though. Did you have to manufacture a bracket or were you able to mount the amp on the plate inside the fairing? I have the same mounted on my '13 Hardball, and am thinking this would be a good winter project here in a few months.
Thanks in advance...
