INSTALLATION OF BODY PARTS

The installation is the reverse of the removal procedure. However, pay attention to the following.

NOTICE : The antenna harness must be protected from pinching or small radii bending to avoid permanent damage to coaxial cable. Carefully lower the rear cargo unit onto the vehicle.

NOTICE : Be careful when tightening plastic panels. Any deformation on the panel around the screw is an indication that it is too tight. Do not over torque panels in order to avoid damaging them.

Im anxious to see the install pics. I think mine has a problem with the driver connector or wiring. The radio works fine if I plug my helmet into the passenger connector. But when plugged into the driver connector I can't hear. The weird thing is I can transmit, so the mic wiring is working in the driver connector, just not the sound. I want to look at the wiring before I have to haul back to the dealer.

I'm new to this forum and just ordered a RT-S in Orbital Blue yesterday. We ordered it with the CB/Comm accessory and I have a question about the accessory parts the dealer listed on my order. They list a "Com. Sys Kit" at $799, "Harness Kit" at $109 and "RR Audio Kit" at $147. I know that the first two parts are need but what about the RR Audio Kit? If that's a rear rider audio kit isn't that part of the RTS model?

Congrats on the RT-S, and great choice on the color. :)

You are correct, the RT-S has the rear speaker system, not sure what your dealer is doing on that.

Dave -
Ken has the video and pics, and should be posting them soon.

Remove the mi-panel cover ( where you check the oil), the drivers DIN plug harness connects right above the oil reservoir.
Perhaps it will be as simple as the wires from the DIN and are all not fully inserted into the connector plug. :TgC_emoticon142:

OK.... Egg on my face moment here... Sorry for the hijack, but I am hoping my goof up will help others that find this thread...

When we ordered our RT-S last Wednesday... Our dealer told us we had to get the $799 CB and a "Kit" for $379. We discussed the "HUH"? In the end my wife and I felt ordering the Spyder was more important, and sweating the small stuff would be later... So.... we need to help our dealer it seems.

They are helpful and easy to work with.... Not worried about having to inform them. I would like to be educated before I call though...

We purchased the RT-S Blue SE5....

Added...
GPS $1199
CB $799 & $379

What parts did we actually need? I will end up putting the over spent $$ on other stuff anyway :thumbs: Thanks!!!

***Edit*** Here are the part #'s (Hand written)... No description next to them :TgC_emoticon142: ... One is the Muffler, already fixed that issue and changed it to the TB with the quiet tip...

The BRP on-line parts catalog has been updated, and at the present does not seem to include a search function, so no clue on some of the part numbers you have.

Garmin GPS # 219400149 $ 1,199.99

CB # 219400145 $ 799.99

Entertainment Harness # 219400201 $ 109.99

The 4474380090 could be a pair of the Communication Headsets, which are $ 189.99 ea, but the part number has a couple of extra characters in it. :TgC_emoticon142:
