Was real easy to install great directions included. Very glad I installed this item, eliminates all the wind noise and when my wife and need to talk it's easy for either of us to turn the mic on or off...
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.
Works great when the wife is back seat driving! LMAO! If you have the CB on everyone on the same channel knows when we are talking and when I have muted the wife. Can be a fun item to have if your wife has a lic. and does the back seat driving or giving you direction when you don't want to go that way.
The assembly quality is a little disappointing. The box is not sealed properly and the inside seems to be a bit too big for the lid to be closed properly. Water and electronics do not mix so this had to be fixed. I used a bit of silicone around the lid and also placed it inside a strong clear plastic bag and cable-tied the opening around the wires. It was easy to install using the provided instructions and without a glitch. Cables are long enough to allow them to be tied neatly to the existing wiring harness. This product really works great! Finally I have a use for the PTT handlebar button (I don’t have a CB radio). My wife loves it – no more complaints about irritating road, wind and engine noise picked up by the always-on mic. I’ve been using this on several day trips over the last month and I am very happy with the results. I highly recommend this product if you want to have a more relaxing ride – you get a lot less complaining from the pillion. Only time will tell about the endurance of this product. I’m still giving it 5 stars despite the assembly issue if you take the price into account.
Really like this since helps reduce wind and road noise that filters through the mic while on. The PTT switch could be a better switch but it does work. I think if I had to do it again I might purchase the J&M version. My wife does use it to takl with others on the CB. I did not tink it was that hard to install.
If you have ever braved the air cleaner change on your wing then this unit is a very easy install. It works as advertized. Don’t bother with the PTT option for passenger, offered with this unit. Its super cheesy and a rip off for the money. Just bite the bullet and purchase the J&M JMPSCRGL18 passenger controller. You will be glad you spent the extra bucks.
And we can't wait to show you how it's done!
