I just did a quick search on Kijiji and found a few models at a decent price, not motorcycle specific, but you can put them in the small compartments on the fairing, the model I was looking at has an fm transmitter so you can listen to it through the wings radio

Why do motorcycle cb's cost twice as much as auto cb's?

It has to do with the waterproofing of the unit and the mounting hardware

I was going to mention also 'limited demand' but these days even automotive style CB's are limited demand, too.
They say 98% of all Hardleys ever made are still on the road..... The other 2% made it home. :lol:
(I stole this from somebody on another GW site...) :roll:

First, I'd like to know where one could get a new OEM CB for $400 to $500 :shock:
To get one as cheap as possible, start checking E-bay and search for motorcycle salvage yards and contact those.
Don't forget there are 3 filters to add and get the SWR properly tuned.

well
they are electronics from the 80's,,
i opened mine to check if i can see any broken parts,lubricate the pot's ,,and i was looking at an old
car radio that was fitted on a motorcycle.

i am still having that noise when i turn it on and i am tired of it.

Some have advised me to check the connectors,plug on the left side,on the amplifier,,
but if i dont found my problem i will all scrap that dynosore

And fit a cheap radio ,,and it will run as long as it will.
