These cold temps and snow haven’t given us much opportunity to to ride this winter. When this happens we usually try to spend time with our bike anyway. Often we will evaluate the condition of the bike as we bond, and we almost always find areas needing attention. It often seems the components in the communication system are overlooked. You aren’t alone, a few of us here at K and G Cycles have done the same thing. We also have neglected to do a pre-flight inspection on our headsets, only to find out mid-trip or mid-season, we need to replace worn parts and make and make them new again. We carry the most common intercom replacement parts to keep you in touch and ready for the road.
The most common wear component that is in need of replacement is the microphone wind sock. Part # BBP-13-100 replaces that gross, worn out fuzzball you’ve been using since the day you got the bike. Deterioration is aided by constant exposure to the elements as well as our own contributions. The windsock endures some of the most environmentally unfriendly hits one could imagine. Honestly, for as inexpensive as they are, I often wonder why we don’t stash 3 or 4 replacements in our tool boxes or on the bike. Whether you run the Large (BBP-13-100) or the Small (BBP-13-103) version we’ve got you covered. Now you can throw away that decaying, funky smelling windsock and your communication components can look like new again.
Next up we present the 5 pin din headset (Part # BBP-13-201) for use in most popular helmets available today. This replacement includes a slim, unobtrusive and flexible microphone for easy positioning and utilizes a small quick disconnect plug for easy connection and removal. High frequency output speakers deliver a clear, crisp sound. To top it off, the headset cord is included. No more interruptions in service and no exposed wires to worry about.
Now that you’ve got the new components installed, you will want a way to keep it all under control. Replace the broken or missing cord clips with new Black ones or upgrade with some bling and install chrome versions.
