This instruction sheet references service manual information. A service manual for this year/model motorcycle is required for this installation. One is available from a Harley-Davidson dealer.
Electrical Overload
NOTICE
It is possible to overload your vehicle's charging system by adding too many electrical accessories. If the combined electrical accessories operating at any one time consume more electrical current than the vehicle's charging system can produce, the electrical consumption can discharge the battery and cause damage to the vehicle's electrical system. See an authorized Harley-Davidson dealer for advice about the amount of current consumed by additional electrical accessories or for necessary wiring changes. (00211c)
WARNING
When installing any electrical accessory, be certain not to exceed the maximum amperage rating of the fuse or circuit breaker protecting the affected circuit being modified. Exceeding the maximum amperage can lead to electrical failures, which could result in death or serious injury. (00310a)
The amplifier installed with this kit requires up to 8 amps more current from the electrical system.

AMPLIFIER HARNESS INSTALLATION
NOTE
These tips help make sure all wiring fits under the seat, especially in multiple amplifier installations:
  • Begin routing the vehicle-side amplifier harness from the large 18-way amplifier connector [288B], moving forward on the vehicle. The large connector does not fit through narrower passages.
  • Route all wire harnesses under the frame rail to avoid pinching by covers or the seat.
  • Take care to route ALL amplifier harness branches away from spark plug wires. Close proximity induces spark noise into the audio system.
  • When routing wires from one side of the vehicle to the other, tuck harnesses under the frame tray behind the battery to keep the battery compartment accessible.
  • Route the six-way black, pink-wired audio connectors under the right frame rail, into the right side cover. Bundle in front of the ABS module (if present).
1.
See Figure 10. Route the vehicle-side amplifier harness (1) in the saddlebag mounting area, beginning the vehicle. Route the harness around the rear wheel sprocket, following the saddlebag support rail.

4Connector [288B]
Figure 10. Harness Routing
2.
Route the harness:
a.
behind and underneath the frame,
b.
into the underseat battery area.
3.
Use cable straps (2) to tie the harness loosely to the saddlebag support. Use the large hole near the saddlebag rear attachment point or one of the cable strap slots along the bottom of the support.
4.
Temporarily install the left saddlebag into the support assembly. When sufficient clearance is confirmed, tighten the cable straps. Remove the saddlebag.
a.
Confirm that the vehicle-side harness connectors reach the saddlebag connectors.
b.
Confirm that the amplifier harness connectors and harness routing are clear of all moving parts.
c.
Confirm that no contact is made at full extension and compression of the shock absorber.
NOTE
Continue routing the harness forward on the vehicle.
5.
Locate the black, four-way Molex connector [296A] near the back of the underseat area. FLHX/FLTRX models: On a jumper harness coming from the fairing. FLHTCU/FLHTK models: On an adapter harness with two 16-way ([162C] and [162D]) and two four-way ([296A] and (297B]) connectors. With ONLY ONE Stage II amplifier installed in the rear: Remove the plug in the [296A] connector. Connect the amplifier harness. With TWO or more Stage II amplifiers installed in the rear: Plug the audio input harness (15) from this kit into connector halves [296A] and (297B] on the adapter harness. Plug amplifier harness connector [296A] into the audio input harness.
6.
See Figure 11.
a.
Locate the 2-way Delphi CAN connector [319B] (1) under the right side cover.
b.
The cap is a terminating resistor pack secured to the electrical caddy. Remove connector [319B] from the resistor pack.
c.
Connect [319A] (See Figure 18 item 9) from the harness to [319B] of the vehicle.
d.
If this is the only (rear) amplifier connection in this installation, connect the [319B] (See Figure 18 item 10) side of the harness back into the terminating resistor pack from step "B" above. If multiple rear amplifiers are used, daisy chain [319B] from this harness to [319A] of the next amplifier harness. Always verify that the remaining connector [319B] is connected to the terminating resistor of the vehicle.
7.
a.
Locate connector 299 on the vehicle (under the inner faring, see service manual for location). This connector may already be connected to a faring amplifier.
b.
Install 69200921 "Y" (See Figure 17 )to vehicle side 299, with one end to the faring amplifier harness.
c.
Install the 69201545 jumper (See Figure 16 to the other end of the 69200921 "Y" inside the faring. (If a 69201545 jumper has already been installed on vehicle skip ahead to "e". Do not install more than one 69201545 jumper.)
d.
Route the 69201545 jumper though the inner faring and into the wire trough following the Faring harness routing.
e.
Locate the end of the 69201545 jumper under the RH side cover near the [319] connectors. If a 69201545 is present from a prior install use a 6920921 "Y" under the RH side cover to connect [299].
NOTE
If more than one amplifier is installed in rear of vehicle, up to two 69200921 connectors may be used.
NOTE
  • If more than two amplifiers or other accessories already use the ground post of the battery, use one of the frame ground studs.
  • If installing more than TWO amplifiers, an AUDIO IN Three-Way Y Connector (included in THIS kit) is needed.

Wiring Diagram Information
Wire Color Codes
For Solid Color Wires: See Connector/Wiring Diagram Symbols (Typical) . The alpha code identifies wire color.
For Striped Wires: The code is written with a slash (/) between the solid color code and the stripe code. For example, a trace labeled GN/Y is a green wire with a yellow stripe.
Wiring Diagram Symbols
See Connector/Wiring Diagram Symbols (Typical) . Brackets [] indicate connector numbers. The letter inside the brackets identifies whether the housing is a socket or pin housing.
A=Pin: The letter A and the pin symbol after a connector number identifies the pin side of the terminal connectors.
B=Socket: The letter B and the socket symbol after a connector number identifies the socket side of the terminal connectors. Other symbols found on the wiring diagrams include the following:
Diode: The diode allows current flow in one direction only in a circuit.
Wire break: The wire breaks are used to show option variances or page breaks.
No Connection: Two wires crossing over each other in a wiring diagram that are shown with no splice indicating they are not connected together.
Circuit to/from: This symbol indicates a complete circuit diagram on another page. The symbol is also identifying the direction of current flow.
Splice: Splices are where two or more wires are connected together along a wiring diagram. The indication of a splice only indicates that wires are spliced to that circuit. It is not the true location of the splice in the wiring harness.
Ground: Grounds can be classified as either clean or dirty grounds. Clean grounds are identified by a (BK/GN) wire and are normally used for sensors or modules.
NOTE
Clean grounds usually do not have electric motors, coils or anything that may cause electrical interference on the ground circuit.
Dirty grounds are identified by a (BK) wire and are used for components that are not as sensitive to electrical interference.
Twisted pair: This symbol indicates that the two wires are twisted together in the harness. This minimizes the circuit's electromagnetic interference from external sources. If repairs are necessary to these wires, they should remain as twisted wires.
