Does anyone know of a stereo made for the Burgman...or any radio that will conveniently fit. Somewhere I saw a radio tucked under the seat that had a remote . I presume that any radio with a remote will work, but where do you put the speakers so you can hear them. Any information would be appreciated.

See photos of my radio setup at:
See PHOTOS and select AM-FM-MP3-CB folder

Pyramid Sound Corp makes the waterproof 100 watt 4 inch
speakers ( with grill ) that fits my radio shelf perfectly. I painted
them black to match the bike, and mounted them to the radio shelf
with a U-Bracket, made from aluminum bar stock. The U-Bracket is
screwed to the plastic magnet enclosure with tiny wood screws. Inexpensive waterproof speakers are extremely hard to find.

Photos of this speaker are located at:

JC Whitney carries these speakers for $19.99 ( 2 speakers in a box )
catalog number 37-9346N. These speakers are NOT in the JC Whithey on-
line catalog, and must be ordered via telephone order.
