SADDLEBAG PREPARATION
Saddlebag Drilling
1.
Lay a clean pad or blanket on the work surface to protect the painted surfaces of the saddlebag.
2.
Remove the right saddlebag bottom from the vehicle per service manual instructions. Lay it, outboard side down, on the protected work surface.
3.
See Figure 1. Place template 76000334 on the saddlebag as shown (faced down). Mark the hole location for "speaker only". Remove the template, cover the drill point with masking tape to prevent cracking or chipping of the paint and drill a 19 mm (0.75 in) hole. Clean out shavings and latch the cover.
NOTE
If saddlebag amplifier will NOT be installed, drill a single 19 mm (0.75 in) hole as shown on the template. If the saddlebag amp WILL be installed, follow the instructions in the Saddlebag Amp Kit.

BOOM!™ AUDIO SOFTWARE UPGRADE
The purchase of this kit entitles you to a specially developed sound equalization software that is used in conjunction with the advanced audio system. This unique equalization was designed to optimize the performance and sound response of the Boom! audio saddlebag speakers. Even if this kit is not being installed by a Harley-Davidson dealer, this special equalization software is available without charge from your dealer through Digital Technician II. Dealer labor rates may apply for the upgrade procedure.
IN USE: A small amount of water may at times collect in the speaker cavities while parked outdoors. The saddlebag speakers are weatherproof, and when the radio is powered the speaker will bounce the water out, but there could be a temporary effect on sound quality. To promptly empty the speaker cavities, lift the saddlebag covers.
