Shark Radio?
Written by dave_hiett on 1/5/2011 at 05:34 am

Anyone have any experience with the Shark 100 watt radio? They make a 250 Watt
version also, but I figure that might tax our electrics. On Amazon there's one
listed for only $44, others for $77. Reviews are all 4 and 5 star. No AM, but
has FM, MP3 port, and is small enough (2.5x3.5x1.75) to fit in a lot of places
on the PC. Comes with waterproof speakers that look like they are meant for
handlebar mounting, but could probably rig up another arrangement. Just
wondering if anyone's tried it! Oh heck, it's cheap enough that if I don't hear
anything I'm tempted to be the guinea pig.

    Looks like a good deal. If you go for it, keep reporting back on where you choose to install it. -Mike ----- Original Message ----- From: dave_hiett To:

    I bought one off ebay yesterday (100 watt, 6 button remote)....should have it by the weekend. Have no clue at this point where to wire it, but it looks like it will do fine....I will report back my experience. Rick --- In

      For the price, I don't think you can go wrong. For the features, it looks like a steal. Post pics and tell us how it works out. THe others that didn't buy will kill themselves.... :-o --- In

        In case you missed it, I posted pictures of my Shark installation in the photo section under 'shark radio'. There are two 100-Watt versions. Mine has the USB port which I really, really like. A friend has one without the USB, but his has an F

          Actually, with the headunit in the trunk, a display doesn't give you much....the one I ordered is the same you have..... Ok, now that I found someone who has added one, where the heck did you plug in the power wire from the amp? Lo

            Rick - PC has an accessory plug under the seat, and that's where I went. I hooked red from the radio to the red wire in the plug (always on), and the ground to the green wire there. Both wires were long enough to reach without adding anything

              Thanks very much for the info on the accessory plug....that's the one I found on the wiring diagram...Red full on, Blue/Black ignition on (I'm assuming), and Green ground...... I received the system today, and pulled the speaker cover off

                Rick, There was a factory speaker grill for the accessory AM/FM radio which is no longer available. Some have drilled a patern of small holes in the standard cover for the speakers. The mounts are good for the proper 4" speakers. Mine

                I already had speakers installed in the fairing from the PO, so didn't use the speakers that came with the radio. Sorry I can't help you much there. Be curious how you handle it...Dave --- In

      Ok, it's installed. I used information gleamed from here to do the work. I bought the 100 watt Shark, gave away the speakers and bought 4" marine speakers. For the speakers, I used a utility knife and cut out along the perforatio

        Congrats and good job Rick. I'm going to check into the black/blue wire. I have the lighted switch for power, but if some kid or idiot walks by, I don't want them hitting the switch and possibly putting a dent in my battery power. I di

        Rick, Post some pics. I'd like to see how it turned out. I'm sure others will want to see how the speakers turned out. Jerry --- In

        I went with the Kuryakyn Hidden Antenna when I added a Jensen weatherproof AM/FM/WB/Aux radio on a RAM mount to my PC800. I put the antenna inside the fairing. It worked well. The link for the antenna is

        As the 'guinea pig', I've been very happy with mine, but like Ting, I don't use it for the radio often. I mostly use tunes in a memory stick in the USB port. The remote on mine works fine for me, once I figured it out. The buttons are small,
