Passenger CB/Intercom controller...

Postby punch7 » Thu Oct 29, 2015 10:52 pm



...the kind that's held to the passenger grip rails with Velcro. It's been said they will not fit the J&M Elite headset lower cord, which is the standard five pin set up. The cord fits the audio plug from the stock Gold Wing so why not the passenger controller unit? Anyone experience this problem?

If both items are for the Wing, they will work! J&M does market lower cords for other bikes!

I saw that on Cyclemax as well. I don't know where that came from.
The part plugs into the Wing harness under the seat instead of the headset lead and has the headset jack on the other end (with the controller in the middle.
A Honda 5 pin is a Honda 5 pin.

The headset cord does not have any wires in it that trigger the CB transmit. It is microphone and headphone audio only.

The PTT switch plugs into another connector found underneath the seat, and the J&M unit that velcros to the passenger handle works great (I have one mounted on my bike).

Thanks for the replies, guys. I appreciate your input.

The unit I was speaking of is not a J&M product but is available from a well known and respected name nationwide vendor. The complaint is that the J&M lower cord is difficult to connect to the after-market unit. However, that doesn't sound like something, with care, can't be overcome. Anyone on the forum have the after-market unit that's giving you problems, please?

Oooops! Sorry I missed this post initially.
That's what I thought about the connection. I've never seen one of these with the cord going directly into the unit. Thanks for the clarification.
