Re: PTT for the passenger
Most all comsystems are designed to be VOX activated for rider/pillion communication. On my BC3 the PTT can be used to side step the VOX. I.e. if I turn the vox all the way up due to (a) not wanting to hear the wife scream becasue I took a corner to low or (b) becasue of wind conditions. Touching the PTT opens the com for a breif two way communication then goes off!!!! As for the PTT, I am going to mount (yet another project) into one of the arm rests. easier for the SO to access. Normal OEM is opposite side of the snap jack on the rear box. Another option is below (to the rear) the seat, adjacent to the side case handle. You can see the plastic deck that runs under the top case.
