Howdy.. pretty simple..

- Remove windshield
- Remove upper fairing cover...
- Swap speakers

You'll probably find, as I did on first inspection, that the speakers have broken leads... mine replaced by warranty.

Replacing front speakers

Mine are working but with a lot of distortion. I'm afraid they're worn out and tired. I have a 2000 LT. Is there a reference manual or detailed drawings I can gleen from. I'm afraid I'm mechanically challenged.

you have to pull the side fairings, windshield and nose cone to at least get access, it is at least a 4-6 hour job to get it done, replace the speakers and get it all put back together again, it would help a lot if you were able to get a manual and follow that.

I was not able to get the instrument cover to come free. It feels as if there is a spring loaded fastening somewhere that I have missed. I can move it a couple of inches and wedge a screwdiver handle in giving enough clearance to undo the middle nose cone screw, but still the cover will not release.

Just pussin' through.
