Saddle Tramp® Ships New Products

Holly Hill, Fla. – March 10, 2022 – Saddle Tramp® by Metra Electronics® has added new products to their inventory designed to upgrade 1998-2013 Harley-Davidson® Road Glide models. This new line of products features a replacement inner fairing for riders who want to upgrade the sound system and install a modern aftermarket Double-DIN radio, as well as accompanying products that complement the fairing. Saddle Tramp® has also introduced a new amp bracket kit to fit 2014-up Harley-Davidson® Street Glide models. These new products are available now for shipping and are designed to help installers deliver upgraded, fully customizable sound systems with less time and labor spent in the install bay.

FLT/Sharknose Inner Fairing - Fits 1998-2013 Harley-Davidson® Road Glide FLT Models

The 95-HDIF2 Harley-Davidson® Road Glide FLT/Sharknose fairing is a replacement inner fairing designed to fit almost any 4-inch tall Double-DIN radio into 1998-2013 Harley-Davidson® Road Glide FLT models. This product allows for the upgrading of the stock radio to a model with a display screen for modern radio technology like Apple® CarPlay and Android® audio. These motorcycles come from the factory able to accommodate only a smaller 2-inch tall Single-DIN radio. This customization kit comes with the radio mounting hardware and speaker plates in three different sizes; 6.5-inch, 6x9-inch, and a blank plate so that you can add the speaker size of your choice. The fairing is painted high-gloss black but can be custom painted if desired, and it retains all of the original gauges on the motorcycle. Like all of Metra’s radio installation kits, it is constructed with durable ABS plastic and designed to match the factory look and feel for a sleek upgrade that will withstand the elements.
