$800.00 for a CB radio that doesn't have any knobs or a microphone? $800 for a six cd changer. Come on Honda. It takes alot to buy one of these bikes. Do you have to kill us with these kinds of prices? You shoud be ashamed to mark this stuff up like this.

I hated that price, but, in their defense, that cb is pretty complicated, the way it's menu driven, and interfaced into the radio. Plus, limited quantity. Where Cobra may order 40,000 cbs, Honda may only order 1000 at a time. Just hypothetical figures, but, you get the point. But, Honda's prices are approaching BMW's prices, it seems. Personally, I wouldn't give 50.00 for the CD changer. I just love the fact that I can load several thousand songs on my teeny little Sandisk, and never hear the same song twice. Altho, set to random, it'll occasionally grab a song that played 2 back, or something like that. And, I just love that hole in bottom of trunk for all the paperwork, money, etc.

You might be right about the cost high due to limited quantity but I wonder how much it would come down if every wing came with the cb and cd changer. I'm like you. I have a little mp3 player and I don't miss not having the cd changer.

I agree with you Bob............

I have the CD changer and an Mp3 player and I find myself using the Mp3 more than the CD. Especially after getting charged $250 at Honda to have it sent back and repaired! I guess I'm trying to not play it as much so it doesn't break! So long story short, I have less room in my trunk because I have less money to put back there!!!

I you kitting ? I love my CD changer, on an 06 with the premium audio the MP3 does not have the volume or the sound quality of the CD changer through the six speakers.


2001 to 2005 the changer was problematic not so on the 06 and up (different part numbers).


There is no unused buttons on my bike, :P

The factory radio took a dump on the Aspy so I opted to install the Jensen out of my truck. Looks pretty good and works like a champ. Its an HD unit so I have hundreds of stations to choose from, plus a cd player and I have the mini plug for the mp-3 or I can use the 2-gig memory stick or plug the mp-3 in with the usb cord and do the same thing. The radio wasa Christmas present a year ago but its only a hundred and ten bucks. Don't know if I'd do the same thing on a newer bike. It was tricky getting it mounted so I did'nt have to dis-assemble a lot on the dash. http://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f2...g?t=1262224289

If I had know grankids were this much fun, I would have had them FIRST!!!!!!!!!!!

I bought the overpriced Honda CD ($1,400 over here at the time) for my 03, but on the 07 I am going MP3. I got €500 ($700) for the CD player from a man in Scotland and that cheered me up a bit.
