ok, lets try this again.

I have a 2010 victory cross roads and I just got a fairing for it. it is the victory cross roads fairing kit, NOT an aftermarket fairing. I plan to put a stereo in it before I have it painted so its handled as little as possible after paint. the fairing came assembled with the exception of the windshield that goes on with 3 bolts. I will need to take the fairing apart to mount the amp inside the fairing and hide all the wires.

my question is, has anyone had one of these apart? there are 4 screws through each side of the inner fairing, and 2 screws on each side through the outer fairing. if I had to guess the 4 through the outer fairing (2 each side) are what holds the 2 halves together. if that's the case I can mount the fairing to the bike and remove the outer panel, leaving the inner fairing hanging from the bike to mount the radio.

I will find out how this works regardless of what is found here. I have searched all over the internet including this site and some other sites I regular, if this info is out there I cant find it. I work on things for a living and I know sometimes things don't go as planned. I figured while I was waiting for time to work on this thing id see if there was someone who had done this.

1- instructions, its not in there
2- inside
3- 4 screws through inner fairing
4- 2 screws through outer fairing
5- front side

unscrew all the small button head bolts and then the bolts that hold the speak grill on and you should be able to pull it apart.

I'm cracking mine open friday or saturday, so I can give you specific details then if you wish.

Quick favor though.. Could you post a picture of the page in the instruction manual where it shows how to mount it? I got mine used, so no instructions :(

Also, what are you doing for audio? I was thinking of RockFord Fosgate 300x2 Punch amp with a bluetooth receiver adaptor hooked up straight to the amp, then 6.5 speakers

What is this bluetooth receiver you are referring to? Do you have a link? I'm going to be installing that amp sometime soon and this sounds interesting. Nicer than having to put my phone in the saddlebag hooked to the aux-in jack.

Thanks,
Rob

I haven't tried it out yet, but I can't see why it wouldn't work. You may have to strip off the connectors and plug the wires directly into the Input of the amp. Also, I haven't spent a ton of time looking around, so there may be cheaper solutions

That thing looks pretty cool. Definitely an option I am now considering. What about volume control?
I am planning on using the Rockford fosgate pcb300 amp with 5.25 speakers. What adapters are you using to go to 6.5"?

It mounts just like the windshield.

Looks interesting! I also found a couple other 'bluetooth dongles' when looking after seeing this. They are similar but not identical. They have a few more connection options but they require a USB power source to charge their battery. This one being hard-wired would be a better choice. The RF PBR300X4 amp should be able to be connected directly via the RCA inputs. I guess the main question is how to switch inputs between the stock radio and this device. Plus the volume question asked above.

Sorry for thread-jacking... Maybe a mod could split off this audio part of the thread?

Volume control would be from your phone.. not the safest, but it'll do in a pinch

HMD sells adapters and the full punch kits

I would only have the amp, speakers, Bluetooth and my phone. No radio or other inputs (Hardball.. so no stereo)

They make volume controls that go inline with rca cables. I would probably do something like that. I really want volume control at my thumb.

I took the fairing apart last night. It's just the 12 small button head bolts

Worm, PM me if you need anything else here. I took mine apart several times. All it takes is removing the 12 button head bolts

Somewhat off topic but I have a question concerning fairing choice. I was wondering if anyone had mounted a CC fairing on a vegas. In trying to stay away from the after market. Any advice or input would be very much appreciated.
