Hi everyone, just got my bike home yesterday, yay, and have some questions. From what I've read the interstate model never had the audio package, but could be added on, so I guess mine was added. The radio works, and the auto volume seems to work. The cb powers up but the display works intermittently. Between the cb and auto volume there is a switch and a knob and I'm not sure what either are for, any ideas? Also is there any way to test the cb and intercom without having the helmets? One more thing is there are 2 five pin connectors coming oit of the left side fairing and also the one in back for passenger. Shouldn't there only be one front and one rear? All wiring looks to be factory like so I don't know, any help is welcome! Jason.

Sounds like it depends on which cords you have. Some of the other makes of bikes and intercom systems use a 7 pin cord and the Wings use a 5 pin. The new wing may use a 7 pin, not sure. Some CB's used a 5 pin mic instead of a 4 so the 5 pin could be for an external mic.

Turn your squelch down until you get noise and then play with that switch and see if you get sound through your speakers. If so the extra knob may be for volume control.

The CB is a J&M MI-2007A. It is a Midland that had all the controls in the mic and main unit is stuffed up in the fairing . The switch controls audio between the headset and the fairing. The y cord with the 2 plugs is so that hand mic could be left plugged in and still use the headset. I originally made this for myself so that when I was off the bike I could easily reply on the CB. Probably only made 100 or so of these. Forgot to mention knob is for talk-back, secondary intercom, so both could hear what the other said on CB. This is the same way OEM worked.

Ok, got everything working except the display for the channels on the cb. Can someone send me the schematics for this system or have a suggestion on how to repair, thanks again, Jason.
