Blown Speakers? Upgrade

Over the years, the sound quality coming from your Gold Wings radio has deteriorated to the point you now notice it. The question that comes to mind is “What can I do restore that sound?” Well K and G Cycles has the answer – Aftermarket Direct Replacement Speakers. These are not Factory offered speakers, rather an upgrade from the stock configuration. Many aftermarket models use higher end materials and heavier magnets that result in a more powerful speaker that is capable of producing a larger dynamic range.

For those of you rigold-wing-speakersding a 2001-2005 GL1800 we have Front and Rear replacement speakers that will have you “Rockin Down the Highway!” Part # BBP-13-102 are lightweight 2-way speakers that have Butyl rubber surround and a plastic cone for superior weather resistance. What you get from theses speakers is 30 watts of RMS power ( the amount a speaker can steadily handle as opposed to peak wattage which can be achieved but not continuously), a suspended tweeter, 4 ohm operation, and are water resistant so they are a perfect motorcycle application. Speakers measure 4-1/2″ in diameter and 2-1/4″ deep so they are a drop in application making the install headache free. For your convenience, these speakers plug directly into the existing factory wire harness, so there is no slicing required.

Upgrading or restoring good sound to your older Gold Wing has never been simpler. With a plug and play, drop in application you are short time away from enjoying those tunes again. Contact K and G Cycles and order up your front and or rear replacement speakers today. Your ears will thank you!

It has reinforced tabs that deliver a stronger, more secure fit and will work with both OEM and some aftermarket Lower Fog Light kits. Installation is straight as this piece mounts directly to your motorcycle with the existing hardware.

   For those of you wanting to complete the look and and add some fog lights we have a few sets that will fit perfectly and let you become the “Beacon in the Night”.

Whatever option you choose, you get simple plug and play installation, and results that will thrill you. Not only will the addition of fog lights increase your ability to see oncoming hazards (i.e. animals, critters, children, uneven road surfaces) they will also help you be seen by others.

Time to Customize Your Honda

For many many moons now, owners of the famed Gold Wing and it’s recent “Custom” Step-Child The F6B, have not had a way to come to The Dark Side. K and G Cycles has found a manufacturer that has created a Smoke Accessory Package that lets you create the perfect Gold Wing F6B. A Limited Edition offering of 9 accessories that accentuate the F6B’s dark lines by turning the standard chrome finish into a Smoke finish.

  The unique dark plated finish gives an illusive feeling to the chrome that adds depth and definition. Depending on the amount of available light, the Smoke look will often take on a chameleon-like effect. Its dark mirror finish is the perfect accent to the F6B and its sinister blacked out design. The Dark Smoke Package is  available in a dress out package of 9 of what are considered to be the must have pieces for the F6B / GL1800. Only this time they are finished in the illusive Smoke finish:

4) Pair of Smoke Battery Covers

5) Pair of Smoke Frame Covers

6) Pair of Smoke Garnish Accents

7) Pair of Smoke Fender Fillers

8) Smoke Front Fender Extension

For those of you that are still on the fence, there is no time to dawdle. This is a Limited Edition Smoke Dress Package and is expected to be available in limited quantities. For those GL1800 owners (2012 and newer) the Smoke Accessory Group for the F6B also fits your motorcycle.
