Honda CB/intercom "Cycle Comm"

Postby gl1100man » Thu May 01, 2014 9:41 am



I just got a 1982 GL1100 that has a CB and intercom system. The CB is working correctly but the intercom does not. The CB and intercom look like it came with the bike or was OEM add in unit. The radio is new and was installed by the last owner. So I'm thinking something is disconnected or connected incorrectly. Here is my problem. I can find nothing online about this unit, no articles, no pictures, no wiring diagram. Has anybody ever heard of a "Cycle Comm" unit. I have looked all over the control unit (which I will post a picture of) and base unit for model number. All I could find is a serial number and phone number ( which has been disconnected). Any help would be greatly appreciated! By the way, this is a great forum and has help me with other problems with my gl1100. Thanks to everybody!

That's a Cycle Comm 1400. Cycle Comm is long gone, they decided to duplicate the J&M cable connectors, and were sued out of existence as a result. Air Rider bought their assets, but they haven't supported it in many years.

I was able to crawl through some Internet archive databases and found a copy of the original documentation for it. Hopefully this might be of some help. I put it online, you'll find it in the "Manuals" section of the site, as "Cycle Comm 1200/1400 Owners/Installation Manual".

Thank you so much for the information. A different CB/intercom may be in my future. Will any unit work on the bike? I see many units on ebay. Do you have a recommendation? Thanks again.
