7 pin headset port

I just bought a 2016 FLTRXS and know it doesn't come with the 7 pin headset port. Can the port be added without adding the CB? Is there somewhere this can plug into and does the radio need a dealer flash for it to be operational if it can be done?

In the P & A catalog there is a long cable that would come out the bottom of the seat so I think its possible? I want it in the console on the tank.

I think you can replace the stock console with the ultra console to place the 7-pin in it. I added the wired 7-pin and have it mounted alongside my console. It's still set up, but I went with a Bluetooth solution from Sierra Electronics

I like the wireless setup better.

headset socket

I have a 2010. I placed my socket on the thigh heat shield on the left hand side of my bike.

I have the service and parts manuals already and you are correct its actually just the insert not the whole console. What I am now having a difficult time sourcing is the harness or connector part numbers to get from under the seat up to the fairing and radio?

I want it in the console is I would like to try a microphone plugged into the console.

I had the comms port added prior to picking up my bike. It mounts on the left side of the tank next to the seat. No CB required, just a dealer flash.

You can also use parts of a Limited if you want the port in the console.

I see where you say this kit does not need to be flashed by Harley. Does it perform all the same functions??

Just finished installing the XM, and com port on my 15 Special, didn't need to flash anything. Plugged the cable into my helmet, fired up the system, and setup my comms to the headset. XM and Comm port both functioned fine. The biggest pain that I encountered was adding the ground wire to the comm plug. I had originally planned to mount the comm port in my console, but since the bike is apart for more powder now, I am experimenting with different solutions. Currently I am thinking of making a bracket to mount it just behind the left side cover, so that the cable is behind me, rather than running forward to the console.

Got the same bike and comm port is beyond easy to install, no flash needed. And if you run the cables the right way there is enough length to mount it in the center console so it looks like it came that way.
