WTB Gen Honda speakers
 
Hi I am after a set of genuine Honda speakers for my ST1300

Speakers or speaker housings? The plastic housings are/were available individually from Honda dealers in Europe (or David Silver Spares)--I have provided the part numbers before, either here or on ST-Owners. I purchased them, figuring that I could find 4" weatherproof speakers at a marine supply store, but didn't install them, and later decided I wasn't going to. I'd sell them to you, except that they are in Italy at the moment, with my ST1300, and I am most certainly not!

Ciao,

I emailed davidspears and they said they could no longer get them.

If I really wanted to buy the housings (or the speakers) from Honda, I wouldn't give up at the first hurdle! I'd get the part numbers and feed them to other suppliers, such as CMS in NL, or bike-parts.fr in France, and I'd probably even try DSS again, this time using the actual part numbers. :)

I am after both the speakers and housings. I have tried several suppliers with the Honda part numbers for the speaker kits (housing and speapers) OEM Motorsports (NL) even took the order but after about 3 months returned the payment saying they were no longer available. I am on DSS wait list list in case they come across a set. I shall try CMS and bike -parts. Thanks.
JZH, I am interested in purchasing your housings assuming that at sometime you will be back in Italy. I will be passing through Hong Kong on the 24th/25th Jan if that helps. I will keep you informed of my search.

Keep your eyes on eBay UK and USA as well, as a set might show up there. Unfortunately, I don't know when I will be back in Italy, but I will keep you in mind.

My guess would be that the eight large-diameter speaker mounting holes are sized to accept the eight M5 well-nuts, and the speaker housings mount using the two holes on the sides (most visible on the housing on the right) to the same brackets where my BLM auxilliary light brackets mount. IIRC, the BLMs use those spring steel blind-nut clip things, but from this pic it looks like Honda intended the housings to mount using M6 screws and flange nuts.

In case anyone is wondering what this is all about, see the pic below. I don't have any pics of my housings, but they look just like the ones in the picture!

As JZH said, the OM speakers don't fit in the fairing and fill that grill area. Rather, they attach back in the fairing and kind of point at the grills. Just about any good weather resistant speaker will work and probably sound better than the OEM setup. And, adding the OEM speakers precludes adding the Rostra Cruise control, if that matters.

Thanks Tim and JZH.
bike-parts replied saying no longer available so looks like I need to pull the tupperware off and see what speakers I can fine to fit.

If you do find something that works to your satisfaction, let us know. I've done some cursory exploration for speakers but never found anything I decided to mount...
