Install Instructions BMW CB '06LT

Does any one have the installation instructions for the BMW handle bar mounted CB to the VOICE COMM II system in the 2006LT or any comm system that they are able or willing to share?

I have the wiring diagram for the 6 pin din that comes from the Comm System but would like to see the actual install instructions as I am trying to come up with a connection for a non BMW CB. I will be using the BMW CB antenna.

Thanks

Gene

Is this what you are looking for? The only change you would have with the VOICEII system is the ground wire. I placed mine at the back of the radio where the sleeve that fits into the rubber grommet is located. Tale the radio out, unscrew the sleeve and you will see a good ground connection for the radio. Remember to put the sleeve back on.

Thanks James. This should do it.

Wonder if I can run the power for the cb direct from the battery on a fused and noise filtered line? I do not have a power relay box (P.) unless there is one already installed on the bike. Every thing else looks doable.

Thank you very much. (I am gonna get this thing whipped one way or the other... )

Actually Lynn was the one who pointed out that by removing the filter/relay that was supplied with the CB unit, he finally got clean transmission. I run mine direct as well.

Gene,
I worked intermittently over a period of a year to finally solve a transmit noise problem on my '05 with the VOICE II and BMW CB. I got 0 help from the dealer and had finally given up and removed the CB from the bike. In one last desperate attempt to get it to work I simply hooked it up with jumper wires and alligator clips directly to the battery and volia, it worked just fine, so much for fancy high priced noise filters. So, I reinstalled the whole mess without the wonderful relay/noise filter and connected power directly to my 6 circuit farkel fuse box. The power source for the fuse box comes directly from the battery and is switched with the ignition through a relay connected to the heated seat power. Hopefully you'll have similiar success. Good luck with your install.

Thank you Lynn. That is the route I am heading toward. i am going to try to make or have someone make a cable to connct the cb to the comm system i.e. taking the mic and spkr hands free on the Midland handheld and wire them to a 6 pin male din to plug into the pre-wired cb hook up for the Comm II. If it works fine if not I will just use the ear bud and lapel mike.....

The midland has a mobile adapter that has a cig lighter power souce and an antenna hook up. So the plan is to use the BMW CB Antenna and power direct using the cord thru a fused power source or add a fused and noise reduced cig lighter plug to the condiment box.....

If all else failes I will beg and grovel to my bride for the BMW CB....... .
