CB connection

Postby manofallseasons » Thu Oct 01, 2015 9:13 am



My 1200 came with a CB but no antenna. I picked up an antenna and fed the cable through the bike innards to the CB but when I loosened the CB to plug in the wire from the antenna, I found no hole. Anybody have any insight or videos on doing this? I am a novice and probably did something wrong. Thanks. Dean

There are several different models (manufacturers) for the CB in the 1200's. Do you happen to know which one?
All that I have seen however, have the input plug for the antenna on a connector coming out of the CB, not plugged directly into it.
Check the connector and see if there is a cable that you may have missed.

The GL1200 with the original Hondaline CB had only one antenna, and like the GL1100, had a splitter in place that was used to allow the one antenna to work for both the AM/FM radio as well as the CB:



As such, you might be fine with what is already on your bike. If you want to use your new antenna anyway, follow the wire from the splitter to the CB and you'll see where it plugs in.

I'll do more checking. The amount of wires is almost overwhelming to me. If the CB does work with a splitter, then the CB is bad. It has never been able to receive the CB jabber though it does turn on. Thanks. Dean

Post a picture of the CB for us.
Where all the plug ins/connectors are, of course!

It might take some days. Really busy right now. But will eventually get a pic up! Thanks! Dean
