You can do the majority of the labor yourself, but when you get done it won't work.Why does it require a dealership to install the HD radio in a 08 Electra Glide ? This is what the description says anyway. Has anyone installed their own HD radio in an 08 EG ?
Intersting. I know this is an older thread but I just install a HK radio in my 08 EGS with stock speakers. All the wiring was there. I just installed the radio, speakers, hooked up an antenna and turned it on. Works well. No need to go to the dealer at all.You can do the majority of the labor yourself, but when you get done it won't work.
The last step is the radio has to be programmed with the Digital Technician.... it's the expensive laptop computer dealerships have. Let's them diagnose bikes and other things as well (program security fobs, etc.). All things electronic.
Ask your dealership how much they'll charge to do that... Ours (where I used to work) would probably do it for free because it will take ALL of about 5 minutes.
Installing the radio is cake.
