i don't have an 1800 but have put cb's on alot of other goldwings and valkyries. all of them had a plug that went to the am-fm radio. and also your driver, passenger communications go threw the am-fm unit.. so i would almost say 100% that the 1800 would be set up the same way.

sorta...there is a harness plug at the back of the bike under the seat, and another plug under the shelter under the radio, and these ultimately end up in the audio system some way so the panel can control them, but no, you will not be plugging in a new plug into the audio unit directly...there are also two noise filters that you'll need to install.

Although it doesn't plug directly into the radio unit, it may as well, as you'll need to get to that area to do the install.
