Connecting to CB radio

Post by tallman21 »

Hey all. Happy new owner of a 97 1500 se. Want to use the cb on it but not sure best way to go about it. I'll likely be using a half helmet when riding and there does not seem to be alot of options out there to use. I found this on Amazon "IMC Motorcom HS-G140P 5 Pin Half Headset for Gold Wing Built-in System". Seems expensive for a basic set of headphones and mic.

Anyone have similar issues or any ideas?

Thank you all.

Compared to the price of headsets for regular 3/4 and full face helmets, $89.95 is not expensive. If half helmet is what you are using, this is what you need.

The market for what *you* want to do in reality, is very small.

You can certainly roll-your-own, but by the time you take the time & effort in doing that...most just pony up and buy the commercially-made with the hope they last a few riding seasons.
