Re: Let's play a game, What intercom system do I have?
I recently bought a 2000 LT with the BC1 COMM system. I believe you may have the BC2, as it is slightly different from mine. But just a warning, I purchased the J&M headsets (which cost me 350 big ones) and some lower cords to fit the 6 pin OEM outlets on the bike. After purchasing the headsets and a custom install in our helmets, I plugged them in to the bike only to find that the COMM system was wacked out. It did work, if you want to call it that. It would play on the left side for a while, then the right side for a while and the side it wasn't playing from would hiss, when talking everything hissed, they were too annoying to even use. After conversing with several members here and reading some archived threads, I found that the units are known to have issues and they can most likely not be repaired. The manufacturer went out of business after BMW quit using them in their bikes so no one will even work on them. I have found some newer BMW systems, the V.O.I.C.E. Comm system BMW went with on later models. I think I have seen them on line at Sierra BMW and if I recall correctly, they were asking about $900.00 dollars. I personally went with an Autocom system for about 250.00. It is an easy install and seems to do the job. I would recommend testing out your unit before you purchase your headsets. By the way, I do still have the J&M headsets and if you find you system operational, I would make you a good deal on them. Good luck with you Comm system!!
