Hey guys,

I really enjoy my Pandora Radio 50's channel so I decided to install an audio system on my "sewing machine". I decided on the Boss Audio MCBK420B system. You can use it with Bluetooth or Aux input. When I received the package in mail and took out the speakers, I realized that because of the static faring that does not move with the handle bars, it would be difficult for me to find the place to mount the speakers without impacting the turning radius of the scoot. I searched a lot here on the forum and all of the solutions by other riders did not satisfy me. I did not want a bag with speakers, nor did I want to have them mounted on the step boards right under the fairing where the running board curves up. So I took the speaker out to the scoot and right away I found my spot. :-) I will mount them with brackets on-top of the brake reservoirs. I will use aluminium 1" or 1.5" wide stock for that purpose. It should come out awesome bounce I am a happy camper. Wait, a happy scooterer, rather cheers

Updates will come.

Cheers,
Mad

You should post some photos of the install when you get it finished. We're always interested in the accessories and modifications by Swing riders.

So i finally got the speakers installed. At the same time I installed a combo cig lighter/2-port USB in the left glove box. I ran both on the common +12v with different points for the ground, not that it matters. I ran the wiring from the battery terminals all the way to the front of the bike under the left side covering. Removing tupperware was not difficult, but installing it was a real PITA. The speakers sound awesome and are very clear and very loud. Here is some of the pictures of the job:

Below is how I mounted the speakers to the top of the brake fluid reservoir

Well done! Great adaptation of the brake fluid reservoirs for mounting points. There is a limited amount of space on the handle bars, so attachment points are at a premium on the Swing. Enjoy your tunes!

Hi Mad I'm sorry but no idea. I have seen them on the Internet. I got them in a job lot of parts that I got from Scooter boy on this site. Perhaps you could contact him, or if he sees this he might be able to let you know. As Dale has posted there are some quite neat universal ones on the site for ram balls.

Thanks for that bikerboy, they have some great stuff on the site, and they do still do the ram ball reservoir cover.
Here is the link.

I recently put a motorcycle Larry's reservoir cover on my wife's Burgman. Fit was perfect, a quality product. The Burgman cover has room for two ram balls. She'll be able to put on something in addition to her cup holder.

Thank you, Scott. These are the volume control knob for the Boss Audio amp and the other is an on/off switch that I purchased in Radio Shack specifically for this install. I wanted my amp to be wired to the constant +12V on the scoot so that I can listen to the stereo, while the key is out of the ignition. Picnic or something. The switch is illuminated, so that I do not forget to shut it off before leaving the Singer on the parking lot.

Cheers,
Mad

Thank you, Jeff. I am trying to have it all done, so that I can just ride it and not worry about anything else. Just oil changes and maintenance.

Cheers,
Mad

rammount.com - anything you could possibly want. I got a brake reservoir mount for my ram mount phone holder. I say - anything and everything. No machine shop needed (but I wish I had a machine shop)!
