Ok, here are the pics. The Cyclesound doesn't fit correctly. If you stand it up it fits better but not quite right, and you have to drill holes in the top of the enclosure to fit the studs from the windshield.
Ok, sorry there's no pictures. Can't figure out how to get them from the phone to the post.

Hard to tell from your pic, but I know there were several variations of the CycleSound/VetterSound for the Windjammer fairings. And at least one version that was for the Hondaline fairing that was way too big to fit in a Windjammer. Here is a comparison pic, VetterSound on top Hondaline on bottom.

Looks like I have the one on top, and I believe I need the Vetter. No matter where you put it, there is no way the metal brackets can be used and also it blocks the windshield vents

Sorry for the short answer, I was at work and have been working double shifts.
It is a Windjammer 3. Don't know the year, but the serial number is still readable if that will help.

As a general question, is it normal for the windshield bolts to interfere with the enclosure? Should one relocate the nuts to inside the lower half, or use a second set of nuts?

I don't think that they should interfere at all if you have the proper fitting stereo enclosure.

Ok, I tested multiple sound units on two different fairings. The two fairings I used were a Windjammer III, and a Windjammer IV. The results between the two fairings were pretty much the same. I didn't notice any issues with the older smaller speaker units vs the newer larger speaker units. The larger speaker Cycle Sound and Vetter sound did seem to fit a little better, they were tucked back more and utilized the bracket to tie into the upper windshield bolts. Also, the older units just bolted the unit directly to the upper windshield bolt vs using a bracket. You will see in the images I tool below.


Windjammer III older smaller speaker Cycle Sound (I put the bracket on for reference) Notice the screwdriver in the windshield mount holes.

This is an early (can tell by the sticker and not and emblem) Cycle Sound, smaller speaker on a WJ3

The one I got does not fit my WJ5 anywhere nearly that well. There is a large difference between the contours, and a large gap around the central arc above the headlight.

The speaker holes are 4-1/8" dia. It says "Vetter" on the top and has a yellow Vetter Sound warning label underside.

If there is one that fits better and has larger holes, I'm very interested. I can handle converting the opening to DIN.

I'm curious to see if the cycle sound on the wj3 will allow the vents to operate. They won't on mine.

My III doesn't have a windshield on it. It clears on my IV. I know some of the cycle sounds have vent slots on the top. I am going to take the Windshield off my IV and put it on my SS this weekend. Ill test it on my III when I do it and take some pics.

Thank You. Look forward to seeing how it fits.
