I've been running a Sony head unit with Biketronics kit for the handle bar controls. No more intercom or CB but never once used either so no loss for me. It's been in since last fall and no complaints so far.

2011 RGU with more money then sence in it.
Oh and its black because blacks faster.

I don't have the cb or intercom either, so I won't miss those. I hardly ever used the weather station either since I got my Smart phone

I was up in the air about the handle bar interface. I decided to go with the PAC because of the price , and it still had great reviews.

I had a biketronics controller, I had problems with it. Went with the Pac RC and it's been perfect for almost 1000 miles controlling my double din. Very easy to set up.

I too am starting to have issues with the stock HK(in the shop now and likely will be replaced as the aux Jack broke). Unfortunately, I do use the CB for inter-bike comms. May have to stat thinking of changing current protocols.

Your kinda stuck with the HK if you use the cb & intercom. I was okay with the HK when everything worked.

Are the instructions clear on what wire to cut and the rest of the installation ?

Yep. Looking at the bike from the front, you will cut the pink/white wire coming out/going into the grey plug on the right side of the bike LOOKING AT THE BIKE FROM THE FRONT. After you cut that wire, ground it and thats it. The PAC-SWI plugs directly into the harness from Scosche. All thats left after that is to program the unit. What part of georgia are you from?

Do I need to buy that Scosche adapter too ? I was planning on buying the install kit off of V Twin Audio. I hope it has that adapter. I guess I need to make a few calls.

I'm from around the Savannah area.
