CB MIC

Postby mikelday » Fri Nov 15, 2013 10:39 am



Hi All, I bought a 1983 GL1100I It has a Clarion Radio, CB and tape casset everthing works great and sounds good through the speakers, the CB has a MIC plugin for the driver and passenger and a push to talk switch for the passenger and one on the handle bars for the driver. My problem is it did not come with a MIC can anyone tell me if you can get one now or if there is a headset type conversion that you can buy. Any help will be really appreciated.
Thanks, Mike

There is a handheld microphone available, J&M makes one: http://www.jmcorp.com/ProductDetail.asp ... BHM-GL1815

It is an adaptation of an electret mic, so it includes a little extra wiring to power the thing. The power portion is plug-and-play for the 1500 or 1800, you'd have to do a bit of wiring for the 1100.

Or, you could just get a headset for your helmet.

Headset is far more convenient. I see them for sale used on gl1800riders.com in the for sale section fairly often. You'll need a helmet that can handle a headset and speakers.

Sierra Electronics can provide what you need
Look here: http://www.sierra-mc.com/
I do not recommend a hand held mic. To dangerous to remove a hand from the handle bars to use.
Good helmet mounted headsets are the way to go.
