BMW R1200GS LC TE Fitting AUTOCOM Bike to Bike Comms

Well it had to happen, so decided to refit my reliable Autocom Bike to Bike Comms system to my BMW R1200GS LC TE.  Only problem - The BMW - No room to fit anything anywhere.......  So a friend of mine came up with this great idea of fitting a small aluminium box under the rear rack.........  It took a bit of fiddling, starting with finding a power source.....  This time an Autocom filter, connected direct to the battery and then a feed from the Canbus to activate the system.
 Centre panel of BMW removed so we could route the wires to the PTT button on the handlebar.  Then remove the rear rack........

 Then Rick arrives with the morning snack......  Went down very well with a brew......
 Rear Rack removed and Andy in background just making the aluminium box a bit smaller.


 Rear rack back in place, so now time to connect all the wires up.....
 When we connected the Autocom, followed the instructions and used the 3 pin lead to connect to the Bluetooth unit.  Managed to get sound, but the vox was not working.   Thinking caps on......Use a 4 pin 3.5mm lead instead - Sucess....

 Bluetooth unit under seat.....
