Satellite Radio

Hey Everyone,
I am new to the board. I just bought my first Goldwing. I can't beleive I waiting this long. I am enjoying every minute on it. Has anyone put satellite radio on their wing? I am wanting to, but do not know much about how to do it. Any information would be helpful. Thanks

No problem hooking it up, run a hot wire and a ground and put on your antenna or you can run the power from the power port under the left fairing pocket.

If it's a new wing with the Satelite radio, you only have to call Sirius/XM and give them the model number and they'll walk you through getting the initial signal.

My guess would be he has an 08 and it doesn't come with astellite radio, and he said

Welcome to the board and congrats on your new Wing.

Was 2010 the first year for satellite radio ready system on the wing?

I installed xm on my 05. I coiled up the very long antenna wire, placed it all under the instrument binnacle and ran the antenna wire out of the left speaker and put the antenna pod right at the speaker. Kept the unit in the pocket on the side plugged into the in pocket power port, worked flawlessly for me. a very neat and easy install

Quiick comment:Many of the older wings did'nt have a 12v power outlet (Cigar Lighter)
I installed one on my 85 LTD with waterproof cap. This is the power source for my Sirius
Satellite radio. I now carry a small 12v air pump as well after a flat out in the boonies.
If your ride does'nt have a 12v outlet install one,you'll never regret it.

A buddy of mine lent me his to take on my holidays and after that you couldn't give me one.When you needed it the most it cut in and out way too much.It would get so annoying that i would shut it off.Why would you want to pay monthly for something that undependable.BTW when this was happening we were running the Skyline Drive and Blueridge Parkway.Probably great for the flatlands,but no good where there are any obstructions.JMHO.

P.S. Love my never cuts out.

No different than in a vehicle with Satellite radio. I thought it was a problem at first when I would drive on tree covered roads. I've gotten used to it now that I know that there is nothing wrong with the system.
