Helmet headset for radio

I have a 2003 Goldwing.

I am on a limited budget and are looking to purchase helmet headphone set for my full face helmet purely to listen to the radio.

I am confused with the amount of sets on sale, so if someone can give me advice I would surely appreciate it.

Re: key rubbing paint

Thank you for that but not quite what I require. The paint marks are on the curve part of the tank cover just below this key assembly.

Thank you anyway.

Highway pegs

Would love some suggestions about type and model of highway pegs to purchase for my 2003 Wing.
Have seen some on Ebay but not sure.
Are the bars on the wing 1" or 1 1/4 inch to fit pegs onto.?

Re: installing new timing belts.

thanks Stuart.
I always assumed the only method of checking the timing on the goldwing is making sure both belts are aligned and the crank also at TDC
is there another way of adjusting the timing?

Re: installing new timing belts.

Can I please ask why you have replaced the timing belt.

Is it because of a time limit on the old belts OR was there an issue happening that needed new belts.

I am asking because my 1200 has not had new belts for at least 7 years and possibly a lot more than that and has backfiring happening.
