I posted a blurb on FB about my new 2020 Can-AM Spyder RT Ltd and the solution I came up with for the CB and Bluetooth comms. Several folks Messsaged me and asked for more detailed instructions on what I did.
The primary parts are a Midland 75-822, K-8R18 Fire-Flex® Coax, Firestik II Tuneable 4’ Tip CB Antenna, SS-24A Side mount, Sena SR10-10 Bluetooth Adapter with Cardo Boldpack Headsets.
So for those who want them, EMAIL ME [email protected] and I can send you a file in either Word or PDF format.
I also mounted a Midland 75-822 with an external antenna on my 2016 Can Am RT, But the set up has an extremely high electrical noise problem. I was wondering if you ran into this problem or if you have any idea what may be causing it. Thanks for your input.
I get the usual static like any CB, that I squelch out. Maybe a little extra since the coax has to be run along the length of the engine bay.
The key, as the folks at Bell’s CB said is a very good shielded coax, a very good adjustable antenna, and then ensuring they are properly adjusted using an SWR meter. I ended up trying multiple combos of things to get my set up into the proper form but once I did it works well.
Email me if you want the specs for my build as both versions of the file (word or PDF) are to big to attach here
