We've always been annoyed by the amount of noise picked up by the mics when the intercom is on. We like having the intercom, but it's frustrating to leave it on. This kit has solved most of that. It works well and is easy to use, except that it's a little tricky to get the button press to work. Installation was a major effort because the top shelter had to be removed to get to the connection that was supposed to be under the left fairing pocket. This kit does not silence the conductive pickup that plagues the Gold Wing intercom.
