My radio install

The HID install is getting along after a mod to the stock wiring DDM Tuning has on what they sent me. I am also waiting for some silicone to dry before continuing on.
So, off to another area of concern on my ride. The radio.
I am installing a Sony DSX-A415BT head unit. It is a digital media player. It does not have a CD player and that is fine by me. It does have a front USB connector so I can put whatever music I want on thumbdrives. I can also fire up the Bluetooth and listen to Pandora, etc, via my cell phone.
Without the CD player the radio is quite a bit shorter than a radio with. I will include a picture with the radio installed in the cradle before wiring. That way you can see how much more room you will have behind the radio to stuff wires, etc.
I will wire up the handle bar controls per the post noahangel11 did about his install. The wiring is the same for both radios.
The Axxess module has plenty of room to fit behind the radio. I just need to get the resistors and cobble it all together.

Re: My radio install

It took a bit of searching but I finally found a seller that has all the needed resistor values that are not in packs of 100 or more. Only 10 per package.
I have them on order.
