I have used the HD XM module for some time... works great, no problems... out of sight, no wires, easy to control. functional... like everything else with a harley, price is relative to what you are looking for and a personal decision :-)

I installed the HD-XM module on my 2010 Limited and it was a pretty simple install. HD specks this labor out as 3 hours which is total BS! I did it in 90 minutes which included replacing the stock speakers with J&M's. The only hitch is making sure the additional wiring harnes you install for the XM does not impeed getting your fairing back on and sealed up correctly. So, make sure you have a good seal along the sides. A zip-tie to pull the harnes back into the dash area solved the protruding wire issue for me.

And your point is? Maybe I should have said fade, in any case it would be hard to read. And besides I dont think they are waterproof. So theres something else one may want to consider

Thanks in advance....and Ride Safe!
Well, from all the positive feedback, it appears I will bite the bullet and get the XM Mod installed. I appreciate all the feedback; it really helps.
Thanks again....and Ride Safe!

Is there any reason to get the expensive wiring harness (that says will fit FLHX) if I do not plan on adding anything else? Looks like there is two of them that are cheaper.

Thanks

Default XM Radio

I have a XM unit for the HD radio that is on my 06 RG that I would be willing to sale if anyone is interested. I have never used it and dont plan to.

I put a Sirius Stratus 5 unit in my saddlebag with velcro, the antenna on top of the radio inside the fairing, ran a Aux cable from the radio (90 degree plug) to the radio, a power cord (battery tender type) from the accessory connector by the battery, both with disconnects out side of the saddlebag. Everything probably cost me $25.00 including the radio unit directly from Sirius. Out of sight and works well. No, you can't change the channels but I only listen to the 70's or 80's so it's not a big deal to me.

I recently installed the XM module in my 2010 Limited and mounted the antenna on the factory bracket you install above the left speaker. I find that when traveleing straight north the signal gets very weak and drops in and out. On my 2004 I had it mounted right on the radio case and never had an issue. Thinking about moving it to the radio case. Anyone else have anything like this happen? It i almost as if while traveling north the signal is blocked somehow.

I too will eventually bite the bullet and buy the OEM XM unit. As stated, the security and keeping the bars uncluttered are worth it to me.
