HK aux input

Ok, I have seen the thread about soldering in a rear facing aux input, I am not too keen on opening the unit and soldering anything in there, particularly since I bought the extended warranty and dont want to give them any reason to blame a problem on me. That being said, I just had the entire bike painted, including the inner fairing, and want to listen to my Pandora and other aux music sources. I am adding a USB and 1/8" aux source plug into the fairing pocket, but need to connect the 1/8" to the stereo and dont want the wire to be seen over my new paint. Does anyone make an add on component that plugs into the HK to provide a rear either RCA or 1/8" input? I have seen the iPhone adaptor from various vendors (including HD), but I have both an iPhone and a Droid. With the availability of plugging modules into this unit, I am assuming someone makes something. Any ideas?

Re: HK aux input

If u don't want to do it yourself you can check out Iron Cross Audio. Don't have the web address at the moment. But if u do a search on the web or on this forum they should pop up...

I looked at them, their prices are very attractive and they seem like a square dealer from the comments I have read. I am certain I can do the modification, I was just hoping someone knew of an add on module that would do it without needing to open the unit up. If I have to, I guess I have to. The paint and clean dash are much more important to me than the warranty on the stereo. I guess if push comes to shove and I get forced to replace the unit for whatever reason, I would go aftermarket anyway. Thanks for the help Cobra.

Iron Aces has a bluetooth module that is plug and play. This will eliminate the need forthe wire to the stereo.

If you do open up the radio, don't cut the circuit board too deep. Ask me how I know... the soldering of the wire is easy, cutting the trace for the aux plug, not so easy. I would leave the trace, and cut an aux wire jack (the one you just cut off to make your patch wire) to plug in and leave in, with no wire coming from it.

on the aux wire, red is right and ground is probably an unwrapped braded cable. good luck.

I am sold on doing the rear aux jack. I will go pick up the head unit from my painter tonight and take it home and put it in. After the money I just spent on paint, I just cant stomach a wire coming out of the dash.
So what exactly does the cutting of the trace wire do for me? Is it absolutley necessary? It seems that leaving it in place would just put the new jack in parralel with the old one. Am I missing something?

Cutting the board is the old way. I saw on here a link to just remove one of the capacitors and that takes care of it. Ill see what I can find.
