    Default Kubota rtv 1100

    Just got a rtv 1100 today and I didnt want the stereo that the dealer wanted to install. Does anyone know where I can get a factory stereo wiring harness plug so I can install my own stereo? I just didnt want to cut and splice!

    Thanks

    Congrats on the purchase. I just bought one a couple of weeks ago.

    The dealer told me they have been trying to get a pig tail from kubota, and they wont give one up. Kubota wants us to buy their $500 radio, which is matched to the plug. No aftermarket adapter exists, it's specific to Kubota.

    Unfortunatley, cut and splice is the only way. I have a diagram, but I don't think it will scan real well. I can translate it for you if you like.

    I hope that they gave you enough wire to work with. Mine didnt make it out of the opening. A 20 minute job turned into 2 hours.

    Well, you'll have one hand going up under the dash and one through the radio slot. No fun...Trust me.

    You'll probably have to put rubber bushings on the steel adapter that comes with the machine, I had to do this. If you look closely at the pictures that I enclosed, you'll see that the radio sticks out a bit on the bottom (pictures taken before the bushings). Once the ductwork foam compacted, that radio went out of level. This set up works, but for this kind of money it should be better.

    Wait until you see what a blast it is to get that adapter into the radio slot. Like putting something back into a Wallmart package

    One more thing, go buy a package of those mini plug-in fuses. I blew one 5amp during the installation. Nice thing is that that circuit is limited to the dome light.

    I think I'll be replacing the speakers down the road..They are awful, I'm not really an audiophile, but a 200w Kenwood should not sound like a transistor radio...Oh well, not a matter of life and death.

    I'll dig that info up and send it to you tomorrow evening.

    Hey...got the radio installed. It really wasn't a hard install..just a little time consuming. Instead of trying to do all the work through and under the dash, I just pulled the steering wheel (which needed adjusted because it was not straight when driving anyway) and about 8 bolts and pulled the whole dash out. Then I had plenty of room to work and since the radio harness didnt have a illumination wire I had to track it down on the ac harness which took a little trial and error. I did pull the fuse that supplied the main power so I didnt blow any fuses...thank for the heads up on that! From start to finish even with the dash removal just took about an hour....took longer for me to figure out the radio..ha ha ha

    tim..thanks again so much for your info I guess your hard work paid off for me!!

    PS..your right about the speakers...not the best but they will do when feeding the cows

    thanks

    Glad to hear that Greg...Sounds like taking the dash out was the way to go.
