If you could come up with an Audioxox CCS-100 it will work. I have one on my car and its great. Problem is, they quit making them. I got lucky and got one for less than a hundred bucks. I hear the Audiovox Rostella or something like that works too but I've seen them for a couple hundred bucks.

If you want true OEM reverse, your easiest and CHEAPEST option is to trade bikes. You don't want to know how much work, expense and grief it would be to change it over. And that's if you do the work yourself..... :oops:

I think he wants cruise not reverse. But trading is probably still the ticket.

I've been trying to add the OEM cruise on my father-in-laws interstate for the past 3 months. It is a chore. You have to start with the wire harness off a SE or Aspencade. Then you need all the components and all the cancel switches. You will also need different carbs, because the interstate carbs don't have the actuator attatchments that you need. And you can't add them to the carb either.

An after market cruise will be the least expensive and have the safety factors built in.

This would be tha way to go. They no longer make this and they are as hard to find as hens teeth. I got mine for a buck and they were going for sixty when they were available. If you truly want to add a cruise to you bike I'd jump on this. I got one for my cheapie car and it works like a champ.
