Default CrossCountry CB/Int question

For those of you that have installed the CB/Int system, or use a J&M CB 2003 on your cross country, where do you mount the headset cords and rubber sockets for the rider and passenger?
Thanks

I attached the rider's headset connector to the left handlebar with zip ties. I have yet to find a place to secure the one for the passenger. Note the lifts under the CB unit. I did that so that the PTT lever will clear the switch pod. They are aluminum spacers I got at my local ACE hardware, along with longer screws. J&M didn't offer a longer bracket, so that was the cure.

I have(Victory CB) my plug in gust above the back cylinder,(where the instructions tell you to put it) I ran the passenger plug under the seat and threw the hole in the seat.

What I like about having the connector on the handlebar is I can see it when on the bike and can use two hands to connect and disconnect to take the strain off the wires. It's also a direct reach from the connection to my helmet and the cord does not touch the tank. Normally, the passenger's connection is mounted somewhere on the left side of the pasenger seat. She passes the cord behind her and connects before mounting. That way, after she mounts, the entire cord is to her left, as is the connection on her helmet.

Thanks guys for the info. I have the J&M CB, but havent hooked it up yet. I will try it both ways to see which might be better.

Where did you find the handlebar clamp that your J&M bracket is attached to? I have the JMCB2003 from my Honda Sabre, but spoke with J&M and they said they don't make a bracket for the Victory XC. I looked at the one that they say fits "MOST Victory Cruisers", but it appears that the bends won't work for the XC to lift it over the controls.

ACE Hardware provided the aluminum spacers and longer screws so the PTT lever will clear the control pod. My bracket has no bends - straight as can be, but it was made for a Honda. Which one, I don't recall.

I appreciate the info for the spacers and bolts, but I was wondering specifically about the chrome handlebar clamp that the bracket attached to...

I found the spacers and bolts at Home Depot, along with a U-bolt and lock-nuts. I ordered the handlebar clamp from a Colorado Victory dealer which appears to be a RAM product and can also be ordered with the ball-mount.

The 1/2" spacers worked perfectly.

I did have to adapt a piece of metal with which to mount the CB antenna and it lines up nearly perfectly with the radio antenna on the opposite side.

Good tools, ingenuity and a nearby hardware store will generally get the job done.

Has anyone thought about mounting a standard cb between the handlebars of the motorcycle? Other than waterproofing would there be any down falls to this idea. I know the cost would be a lot cheaper, like $150 dollars vs. $1400 dollars.
