I know this has been covered a thousand times in this forum, and I think I have read half of the threads. I am a bit overwhelmed.
I just bought a 2002 K1200LT with (I believe) a BC-3 comm system. I don't have headsets or cables, but I WANT them
I would like to take advantage of the equipment that is on the bike, and the way I understand it, that means using the cables. I am fine with that.
My primary motivation for getting headsets is to be able to talk to my wife on the back. If we don't have an open line of communication, we will be stopping every quarter mile to talk. Listening to the radio/MP3 player would be next most important. I don't see myself using the CB anytime soon, but I'd like to have the option. Of least importance is cell phone connection. Riding is my time to relax. Talking on the phone interferes with my relaxation. The wife, however, would like to be able to use her phone. If I tell her that its not possible, she'll believe me
Here's what I am thinking about so far:
Performance series J&M headset #HS-BCD279-FF (we both have full face helmets)
Lower cord without the volume control HC-PJM
First of all, will this setup work for what I want it to do?
Next, should I get the lower cord WITH the volume control? Cost is a factor for me. I really only want this feature if someone here thinks that I will regret not getting it. I think that made sense...
Lastly, are there other options that would be as cost-effective?
I really appreciate any thoughts on the subject. I almost ordered this stuff, but decided that I should ask some advice from people that actually know what they're doing.
