I have installed one (not on my bike), but the sound (IMHO) is not "better" than the original factory stereo when the factory one is working right. The Jensen sounds great, but most people use it as a REPLACEMENT for their stock unit that has gone bad, not neccesarily as an UPGRADE. Others will chime in soon!

Re: jenson radio

If you are going to just use your bike speakers, you might want to consider a small amp with the jensen. I have only used mine a few times without helmet speakers, and it is not bad. I also upgraded the factory speakers as they are crap after a few years, you might want to consider that if you have not done so.

Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying " I'll try again tomorrow".

Re: jenson radio

My 2 cents is that I think the stock system (1999) could be played a little louder before distortion was notice. At speed on the interstate I have the Jensen playing around 30 to 32 on it's volume setting. At a stand still this is where I start to notice distortion.
I also think I can get more of a bass boost out of the Jensen then stock.I also like the simple ipod hookup but wish it would charge when hooked up. I have not tried the internal storage yet. Generally I am happy with the set up so far.
