Recently I found that Honda changed cable connectors at 2012 GW 1800 model, resulting in fact that older CB radio kit cannot be used. I am looking for an advice if there is a way how to use my CB radio in new GW (reduction to a new connector or something) or if I have to throw it away (its brand new, never used and with $800 price tag) and buy a new one (and I believe that the new CB radio kit is exactly the same, only cable connection is different). Anybody have experience with this? Thanx.

Thanks Tom. That will save many owners having to purchase another Honda CB when they upgrade to a 2012.

Good find Choppas. Honda slipped up there. They only needed to make their own adapter cable and sell it with the existing CB kit to make it compatable with the 2012. That would have meant the existing CB won't go out of date any time soon.
Making a whole new CB for the 2012 was just stupid when all they needed was the adapter.
