Re: Installing Satellite Radio

I put in an XM Commander radio, (can be purchased at crutchfield) in the right side pannier after I had removed the ole "skip-o-matic", aka CD Changer. The Commander has a controller that I mounted in the oddments box on the stingray attached with velcro. The radio is connected to the factory radio through the CD Changer connection , thus, the source selection on your radio has to be put on the CD changer to hear through the speakers or ComSystem. I tried using the FM modulator function on the XM radio, but didn't get enough volume. I ending up using the line out of the XM radio and going through the interface. The interface can be purchased through a company called Blitzsafe. The one that I am using is a Soundgate, but I don't recall where I purchased it.

Re: Installing Satellite Radio

I installed Sirius unit on the left handlebar using a mount I bought from Cyclegadgets. I ran a seperate line to my fusebox. I simply used the FM Modulator and programs 6 back upstations. In a pinch, I used the cassette adapter.

Now, I simply use the XM unit in my Zumo or stream music to my Scala headset from my phone. Clarity is much better!
