I need to replace the coiled cable that goes from helmet to plug into baehr system. I see they are $50 from baehr. Anyone else carry a cabl that works for less. How about radio shack?

Assuming you are referring to Baehr part # SPK-01-03, the only place I found them was from Challenger Motors, New Zealand, but the same price you quoted... in New Zealand dollars.

I've ordered from Challenger Motors a few times, standard shipping is cheap and fast. You can also get Baehr parts from South Africa, and Finland, I've also gotten parts there. Very fast and reliable.

Pretty sure they use a standard 5 Pin DIN connector....so if you can't find one, you could always buy the components and make one....for allot less than $50.

I was thinking about that also I am sure RS has a connector and I have a solder gun. Thanks

I don't have a clue if this applies to your situation, butt way back in the day, when the Autocomm units were the rage, their first gen systems used a 5 pin DIN cord that you could find at an electronic store (not RS, butt like Frye's or just an electronic supply company) and the coiled ones were a leetle more costly than the straights!! The straights were available in my area for about $2.95!!! They were classed as computer keyboard connecting cables. Might try a google or Amazon look-up. HTH, and good luck.

Ok went to Radio Shack and for less than $15 I got a cble that works, actually 3.
Got 3 cables in a package, each 3 foot long. Red, yellow and blue. But both ends were male so got a male to female adaptor. Works great. The cables are not coiled but that is ok.
So thanks to everyone who offered great advice.

Thread resurrection:

Do you have a part number for the 3 pack?

Thank you.
