Holly Hill, Fla. – January 27, 2021 – Saddle Tramp® by Metra Electronics® is now shipping ten new audio harnesses designed for Harley-Davidson® Batwing Fairing (FLH) and Shark Nose Fairing (FLT) motorcycles with or without the Tour Pak®. These harnesses provide plug and play connections for adding aftermarket speakers, bypassing the amplifier, converting the radio connectors, or pre-wiring for adding an amplifier or the Axxess AXDSPX-WR or AXDSPX-HD1 kit. Saddle Tramp’s new audio solutions are designed to save installers time in the bay when upgrading the motorcycle sound system by reducing the need for wire termination.

Harnesses for Adding Amplifiers or DSPs and Radio Conversion

The BC-9713 radio conversion harness will help installers save even more time, as it converts the radio connectors on 1996-1997 models to the 1998-2013 radio harness.
