Gl1200 LTD - audio/radio/headsets technical problem

Post by banditman87 » Tue Apr 09, 2013 4:42 pm

Hi guys

This is my first post having registered after viewing and using much of the previous materials

I am a 2nd gen goldswinger! Having been raised on every wing from 1100 to 1800 solos and trikes i now have had the audacity some would say to buy a 85 ltd which is 2 years older than me :o , what can i say i like a classic!

Having worked on all the wings in varying respects the audio side is not something i've majorly explored

My point, my LTD has the cb and headset gubbings. It did have the panasonic RM1100 head unit, i say did as the previous owner, who i now now to be a trumpet (being polite) replaced it with a lovely modern all singing/dancing mp3'able thing! Also threw the panasonic in the bin :o :x

So in short i have music to all speakers but heff all else. With the head unit being old and hard to find i continue........

Does anyone know if such an idea exists or how to do what im thinking? Can u create or wire up a unit that allows the cb, ptt, and all to work as it should via a modern head unit, i know its a long shot but im stuck due to a previous amateur sports bike liking, novice electrician, goldwing killer!

Or does anyone have a panasonic rm1100 and ltd wiring they dont want 1 000 000 00 local currency and my house in exchange for??? Any replies welcome

I know some guys have wired up the stock PTT/channel select buttons to HAM radios, so it's certainly not impossible.
