LT noise in MP3/GPS/Phone output/inputs

Have LT apart and about to run my cables from various devices to the to my Beahr Intercom System which sits atop the battery.

More than where to, I am looking for where not to run the wires. Anything that will cause or reduce bike noise interference?

I am thinking over tank/under the plastic on left side to stay away from the fuel pump, etc and maybe use the gas and tank as insulation from the other components.

The wires include the 2.5 and 3.5 for the Zumo GPS inputs and outputs, a separate 3.5 output for another MP3 Player, and a 3.5 input and output or the cell phone.

Any ideas. Thanks.

Hint: Look for a ground loop isolation cable

I'm sure Raffy at sells them

Also, you might look at the Baehr noise suppression cable

Re: LT noise in MP3/GPS/Phone output/inputs

remember if you run any cables "over" the fuel tank you will need a disconnect as well, giving you another contact point in the cable which will be subject to corrosion. cause that tank has to come out to check the air filter
