    replace the radio with something useful? 2013 R1200RT

    I just read a post that implied that the radio 'pocket' could be replaced with a non-radio pocket.

    The radio is useless to me. Has anyone done this replacement?

    Thx

    If you can park it, and not turn around to admire it before walking away, you bought the wrong one.

    I am looking for a similar solution. Checked with Beamer Boneyard and they say that they do not have any solution to this. Has any one pulled the radio and was it worth it? I also have a 90th Edition Anniversary RT.

    Thanks in advance.

    The only issue I saw when I was going to do this for someone recently is a way to seal the bottom of glove box where the harness enters. No part listed as a cover/ blank off. A piece of plastic and some sealer no doubt will work. Didn't end up removing for now.
    Removal of radio easy after taking sidecover off.
