For those of you that have the Polk db521 speakers, did you have to use a different connector for the wiring? I thought this was pretty much a plug and play upgrade but I can't seem to get the plug to stay plugged.

Go to an electronics store, buy the correct connectors to mate with the speakers and sets to mate with Vic speakers and some speaker wire in a matching gauge to what's in the bike. Make four "jumpers" one of each set, to go between the old connectors and the DB521's connectors. This is what I did to install mine.

Thanks Pain, late last night it was bothering me so I searched and I saw a YouTube video from an Indian owner that did the same thing. Now I need to find an electronics store in my area since all the Radio Shacks closed up.

Most Auto Parts stores will have what you need. I think. That's where I'd start.

Checked them all, nobody has those sizes. Guess I'm going to solder some wire to the speakers and make my own connectors. I made the mistake of taking my fairing off BEFORE I had everything to complete the job. It's been 3 days now since I've rode and I'm starting have withdrawals. Just gotta get out.

You should be able to find an assortment of male and female spade terminals at any hardware or big box store.

There is always the method I used. Crimp the current connectors with pliers until they hold. So far so good after 4,000 miles.
