Can you flash a Harley radio?
The factory system that Harley dealers use to flash a radio is not what you should be using. All factory Harley flashes are intended to be used for factory Harley speakers and amplifiers and not aftermarket equipment. There is only one flash tool to use. It’s made by a company called TechnoResearch.
Should I flash my Harley radio?
Once we install a speaker that plays fine down to 60 or 70Hz, the boost simply isn’t required. Unless you want to invest in a dedicated digital signal processing, the Harley-Davidson radio flashing process is mandatory when upgrading these systems.
How can I make my Harley radio louder?
Upgrade 2 – Add High-Power Amplifiers When it comes to playing music loudly, your speakers will need lots of power. Upgrading your motorcycle with a high-power, high-efficiency amplifier is the only way to make your music loud enough to drown out wind and exhaust noise.
How many watts is a stock Harley stereo?
Average factory motorcycle stereos give off 10 to 15 watts of power to each speaker. For most, that’s not enough oomph to hear your music even at cruising speeds. When shopping for new Harley-Davidson® speakers, look for a product with at least 300 watts. If you’re a highway rider, aim for closer to 600 watts.
What does a line leveler do?
Basically, it’s a small box that ties in in between the amp, stereo, & speakers so the dealer won’t have to do a flash. In a nutshell, it levels out the signals. Biketronics sells them, as well as several others.

How can I improve my helmet speakers?
Improve your sound
- Move the speakers closer to your ears. This sounds like a simple thing to do, but not all motorcycle helmets have the recesses for speakers in the right place.
- Replace the speakers.
- Wear filtered earplugs.
- Change the music settings on your device.
- Get a volume and bass-enhancing app.
Do you need an amp for motorcycle speakers?
Most decks and motorcycle speaker systems have amplifiers built into them, enhancing the sound even further from its original state. These default amplifiers generally lack the power to deliver high-quality sound signals to premium speakers; thus, you need a dedicated amplifier for the job.
