Can I Put a Touch Screen on My Harley?

Purchasing a Harley-Davidson motorcycle ensures a thrilling experience with plenty of room for customization. Riders of all ages look to dress their bikes up with the latest technology for comfort and convenience during long trips and daily commutes. There's no denying that a Harley offers sleek looks, aggressive power and a signature exhaust sound, but can you install a touch screen?

At Fat Head Cycles, our experts look to push the limits of modern motorcycles. A Harley acts like a home away from home for many of us, so we bring our customers innovative products to help them enjoy music, hands-free capabilities, navigation apps and more. Equipping your favorite bike with a replacement radio might just be the upgrade you've been waiting for.

Sony makes it possible to incorporate weatherproof options for Harleys.

Our products showcase features such as Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, anti-glare displays and weather-sealed buttons to keep you safe from the elements. The sky is the limit at Fat Head Cycles, with installations that suit popular model years from 1999 through 2020. Treat your Touring Harley to an accessory it rightfully deserves.

The Best Harley Replacement Radios

Harley-Davidson owners have access to cutting-edge receivers across the Fat Head Cycles online store. We proudly stock replacement touch-screen radios like the Sony XAV-AX7000 to outperform original head units. Discover complete bundles that come with inner fairing trims in your choice of color for a drop-in fit.

Installing a Touch Screen on a Harley

Fat Head Cycles can save you time, money and frustration with radios that plug directly into your factory harness. Your Harley warranty will stay valid with virtually no need to cut, strip or solder wires together. Most of our dash kit radio bundles install in as little as one to four hours, and you'll notice zero gaps between kit components and your motorcycle's dash.

Save time, money and frustration with plug and play radio options.

Installing a touch-screen radio involves a few basic tools. You'll want to have flathead screwdrivers, a ratchet set and Allen wrenches within reach. Installation methods look different between motorcycle builds, but the following steps are necessary for a proper install: 

  1. Removing the windshield and upper fairing trim
  2. Separating speaker grilles
  3. Disconnecting turn signal electronics (if they're connected to the trim)
  4. Pulling wire harness and antenna connections from the factory unit
  5. Using included adapters to complete the setup

Order Your Harley-Davidson Radio From Fat Head Cycles

We cater to our customers with online tutorials, which will guide you through each step of the installation process.
