    How do you wire a aftermarket CD/Radio into an Electra Glide Standard?? Do I need a wiring kit?? Can it be straight wired?? Any help appreciated....

    There really is no easy answere.. It all depends on who make this unit.
    Decide which unit you want, research it on the net for compatibilty and ease of installation.
    Check for the following:
    Can the existing connectors be used.
    Does speaker impedance should match your new radio?
    Will your old speakers handle the extra power ?
    Will the new unit fit into the existing mount?
    Does it require a wiring harness?
