I have a couple different options available for the thumb controls on a harley, but I'm not aware of anything specifically made by Kenwood. The easiest option is the Biketronics or Hawg-wired kits, but I also sell the PAC & Axxess hardwire options.

YES! Harley-Davidson = EXPENSIVE! Mr. Goodtime, send me a link to what you are looking at so we are ALL on the same page here, then we can say whether it will or will not work and give you some advice. This is not all a sales pitch from anyone, but sometimes you really do get what you pay for and its always nice to know before you do something exactly what to expect, then you can decide whether or not its worth it to skimp on the part.

It will work, but I was not impressed with the functionality of the last one that I did. Also, good luck with any warranty with online parts, not that its typically an issue. Those guys are just not making enough money to actually provide customer service after the sale - my 2 cents.

The PAC SWI-RC would be a better option if you are going to cut wires and solder resistors. I sell them for $80 shipped, programmed, and prewired with the resistors soldered in. Still not a good option if you are not 100% sure of what you are doing.

The Biketronics BT1005 kit is a much better option, and no cutting or modifying of the stock harness is required. MSRP - $250, I can sell you one for $200 + S&H. Just an option.

Also, what Kenwood receiver are you doing? KIV-701?

$80 for the PAC already set up is an awesome deal! I gave 110 from a local auto audio store and I could never get it to do all the functions. I was in over my head I guess. Now it sits in my toolbox drawer!

Ok I'll take $600! I sold the non HK version from my 05 for $350. I think the guy was desperate!

that medalion setup is f-ing sweet. download 8gigs of music on a flash drive throw it in the saddle bag and forget about it. something about trying to change cds while riding scares me. just a personal opinion

I believe you can get up to a 64gb USB memory stick. Once the ipod cables are available, I will have them for sale in addition to the radio kits for $30 additional. I usually just recommend the USB memory stick or aux plug in because ipods have a tendency to get broken and cost hundreds of dollars, whereas a USB memory stick can cost under $10 and is easily replaced!
