2008 Helmet & Intercom

Postby mtnned » Sun Feb 03, 2013 4:30 pm



I am a former GL1100 owner (1981 & 1982) who had the full rig of color-matched helmets and wired intercom units that worked great. Now, I am returning to the Wing Family with the recent purchase of a 2008 top-of-the-line model, but I don't have my helmets yet.
- I don't know what brands "work" these days, nor where to look for or buy them.
- Is my year of wing only able to have a wired intercom or can I go the bluetooth route?
- Am I looking for a Nolan-type of helmet that can be equipped with either a bluetooth or wired system?

Sorry for all the questions, but I don't know where to start...

Nothing has changed. The helmets you used on your 1100 will plug right in and work just fine on the 1800.

The 1800 does not utilize Bluetooth without aftermarket additions.

Unfortunately, I long ago had to sell my 1982 Wing and with one helmet stolen and one remaining, I have no idea what became of it. But it is good to know that I'm looking for a wired system like the one we had back in the '80s!

I just bought a Nolan N43E helmet for my 2012 Gold Wing.
