Swapping CB radios.

Will a Honda factory CB radio from a 2010 Goldwing fit in a 2017? Not the antenna, just the radio.

I don't know anything about a '17 but you can buy a cable adapter for the pre '12 CBs to fit the late model Wings. Electrical Connection might sell the cable adapter.

Yes, as Red said the adapter is the key. EC, Sierra, and maybe wingstuff, and probably others sell it. I think it is less than $20. The hardest part is rolling up that long excess data cable and trying to get it to fit in the small space. I rolled it up tight and zip-tied the bundle to keep it tight and small.

May Jesus Christ bless us all.

I belive Bike MP3 the maker of the adapter cable is out of business. I suggested the same thing as Red and Red Ron did, to another forum member a few months ago. He didn't have any luck with Bike MP3, Serria, or Electrical Connection. So good luck to the OP.
