When Harley announced it's new updated Boom Box GTS Infotainment System it was equipping the 2019 & newer models with, they failed to make a kit so that owners of 2014 to 2018 Harley's could upgrade from the older version of the Boom Box system if they chose. This infuriated many Harley owners.
A company called Soundz Bagger quickly came out with a harness that made the retro-fit possible but it cost a whopping $450. And then you'd have to spend an additional $2400 to purchase the Boom Box GTS unit.
It's hard to understand but Harley riders were spending all that money to upgrade when in my opinion the GTS unit is not that much better. Yes, it's an improvement over the original 6.5 Harley Boom Box unit but not worth that much money! You are basically paying to fix Harley's mistake with the first iteration of the Boom Box Infotainment System.

As of November 2019, it seems Harley-Davidson has now silently come out with their own kit to make the conversion to the new 2019 Boom Box GTS possible on those 2014-2018 touring models. Visting Harley's website, it seems they are marketing and describing this conversion kit more towards upgrading from the smaller 4.3 non-touchscreen unit to the new GTS unit.
For 14-18 models, they say an additional USB Connector needs to be purchased for around $35-$50 but you can't even find the part on their own website at the time of this article. I actually seemed to have found the connectors on Surdyke's website (links below). The cost of the Boom Box GTS and conversion kit has come down in price to around $1900.

We here at Law Abiding Biker™ Media may actually do a retrofit to the Boom Box GTS unit and a video only to help bikers that are interested in possibly doing this. However, I would not personally do it except for that reason. Make sure you're subscribed to our YouTube Channel for that video and a ton of others.
