Some were asking about my new CB system that I installed on my Royal Star. Below are the details for those interested.
This system is manufactured by J&M Corporation. Visit
for more information
Part # JMCB-2003-DU CB Audio System (dual operation includes passenger) $280
LPCBA-400 License plate mount CB antenna kit with 4ft antenna. $64
(shorter antenna available.)
HC-PJM 6-pin Lower Cord. $19
JM-HS-DM-HH Slide in style headset for half helmets. $170
JM-JCB03-HBK03 JMCB-2003 mounting bracket. $40
Total shipping costs; $47
Total system cost; $620
There are several decisions necessary to make a system like this work for you. For example;
1. Will you be riding with a passenger?
2. What antenna length do you want? Longer = more range.
3. What type of helmet will your headset go in to?
4. Which mounting bracket works best for you? I bought 3 different mounting brackets, then sent 2 back after determining which would work best for me.
I would highly recommend contacting Sean Franklin owner of Cycle Gadgets
to discuss your particular wants and needs.
After determining the configuration that works best for you, gather the part numbers. I found and purchased 3 of the 5 necessary components on eBay for cheaper than I could get through Cycle Gadgets. On eBay they were offered 20% cheaper by a company called Gear Up, LLC out of Tucson, AZ. You could call Gear Up direct at 520-884-8245, and ask them what they have to offer for the parts you want. Service and shipping were great with both Cycle Gadgets and Gear Up.
I installed the system myself and it took me ~12 hours, but I’m sure it can be done in much less time. Everything works as promised. Caution: do NOT connect wires directly to the battery.
Good luck, and be safe,
