Hi Folks,

Can anyone tell me how to connect a non honda cb into the intercom system.

My 1500 is a 1988 standard model which did not come with an original cb. I presume i will need a connection cable from the cb to the radio. I'm afraid to go mucking about in case i blow the s*** out of one or both. Can anyone let me know what I need, where to source it and how to do it. Or has anyone a CB for sale?

Help

George

There used to be an interface available in the UK for a cb on the 1500. I'll try and find out who sold it (think it was Mike Chadwick) later today.

Hi George

cbs for 1500 are like gold dust,they were around $800 new in the USA ,but are now discontinued,,I have seen secondhand one go for $900 on ebay ,however getting back to your problem ,on this site under the "worth a look " section you will find information and links to companies for almost anything for a goldwing ,so just to save you the trouble this time I have copied the following from that section ,,,see ya sunday17th oct..Ciaran :action:

Stuarts stuff is good but all added up it will cost you about £400 plus about £60 for an antenna.

Chadwicks don't do the interface anymore. The shop does custom stuff now and Wings are not part fo the setup anymore. I guess Stuarts one is the way to go, expensive but it does work and it's a good unit that covers all the popular CB frequencies.

Hi Ted, :waving::waving::waving:

Many thanks for the info. In the meantime I have been busy and have fitted the J&M handlebar CB unit. For anyone interested they cost about €750 on this side of the pond and €400 on the other side.

In total it takes about two hours to fit, but well worth it.

If I bump into you we can use all that CB jargon.

Ten four and safe winging

George
