Update- So I bought the Miccus bluetooth device and have been unsing it on my bike for a few days. The good news is it pairs very easily and the sound is great. The device has an internal battery that charges with a USB cable. Yesterday I rode around 5 hours total and the last hour, the device died on me. So the bad is, it only has about 4 hours of use betweeen charges.
On a nother note, sometime the device, for whatever reason fails to make connection on the aux plug and you have to fidget with it to get ti to connect. The device comes with several adapters such as a cord with mail connectors on both sides, an 1/8" plug to RCA and a male to male 1/8" plug. The device only has a 1/8" female plug. I use the male to male plug and i think it is the problem, seems to be somewhat poorly made. The cord works flawlessly, however, If I wanted a cord I would simply plug in the phone to the system.

My painter is removing the outer fairing again this wekend, I believe I will be doing the rear aux while it is off. Best of both worlds.

HK aux input

For dummies like me who are sure they would fubar cutting the trace, ironcrossaudio is awesome. Their price is reasonable and service and shipping is fast. Having the rear jack is well worth the money, and avoiding screwing up my head unit by trying it myself is priceless!

Re: HK aux input

The issue with the trace is this... The hk recognizes the aux plug is inserted so it will make that input selectable. Without the plug or the trace mod, the aux is inactive. I think.....

My bad. Just saw it at a glance and didn't watch the install video until now.

hd4cruzin Here are the instructions for removing the surface mount, instead of cutting the trace:

Look halfway down the page for the details.

Hope this helps
