Autocom audio lead mounting

Hi All,

Will be installing an Autocom on a K1200GT (when it arrives in a few weeks) and I'm looking for suggestions for mounting the connectors.

I believe I saw something about an external cap a few years ago on the this site, but not sure.

If I'm not mistaken the cap was similar to what's used for power points, but there were a few parts needed to capture the autocom plug in connector (and extend/expose female end) and then pass through body panels w/ a protective flip up cap.

Anyone done this/remember this and can help?

Also - anyone having a K1200GT that could recommend good mounting position for passenger/ride??

Thanks,

Autocom response

FYI - I've been in contact with Autocom to let them know we're really interested in a bulkhead mount product for the headset connectors.

After a few emails to provide description, and a digi-pix of Baehr's bulkhead mount they said they'd see what they could do.

They don't have this item today, but they just might in the future (no, I don't know when yet).

As more info is available, I'll be sure to update.

I have the Auto com on my 06 LT.
I called the company to see if they have a plug that can be mounted on the body of the bike. I was told they did not want to make a mount for the bike.They want the cord to be able to pull a part in any direction a person might fall. Having it connected to the body of the bike could cause injury. I just have the plugs coming out by the seat of the bike. I would love to have a permanente plug in the body of the bike... If you find something please let us all know.

Or just forget to unplug it. Having a fixed socket mount would put much more stress on the connections than having a cable that can swivel around some.

If you really want the socket to stay in a fixed position, just wrap it with sticky-backed velcro, and stick the other velcro on the bike somewhere convenient. The socket will stay put for normal use but will still give if you yank it hard.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...
