    Intaride HAWK radio system

    So just ordered this http://www.intaride.com/bluetooth-1.html

    Going to replace my existing under the saddle Intaride system, so that I can change channel and settings without having to get off the bike.

    You still have to get access to the unit to change channels.

    I have the wired set up, and have a problem with one headset, which Intaride have replaced, quickly and efficently. Once it arrives I can give the system a good test. Initial impressions....seems a good piece of kit.

    I'm putting the unit on the left side of the grip and using one of these, http://www.wunderlichamerica.com/mot...50267-268.html you can get a 10mm bolt for the wunderlich mount that replaces the one which holds the bar end on.

    Radio is waterproof.

    Also have looked at the back of the radio, and the chassis is made of aluminium, and the recesses that hide the fixing screws can be tapped out to 4mm so that's how I plan to mount it on to the wunderlich mount.

    I have a 2m antenna extension lead which gives me plenty of cable to get to the back of the bike.

    David @ Intaride said I can use the small antenna from the existing setup, or the longer stainless steel one with the new kit.

    Wunderlich kit has to come from Germany so won't be here for a week which means it will be just before xmas when I strip the bike down to fit it.

    I'm probably going to get a fuzeblock, but NN is the only UK source and don't like buying from them after last few disasters and their non customer focus way of doing business.

    Radio is waterproof.

    Which radio are you planning on using.

    If you mount the radio via the die cast chassis, what about the battery?

    How will you power it?

    Most radios are 7.2V so you will need to regulate 12V down to probably 7.5V.

    The Hawk system is a radio/intercom combined, powered directly from the bike.

    You can use Bluetooth modules or a wired system to rider/pillion.

    Check out the link in the first post.

    So I have a 12v desk mounted supply and powered the unit up.

    I paired it to my BMW helmet and the microphone would not pick up, tried their headset and the same thing , no microphone pickup at all.

    I did a factory reset, same problems again, and now it's stuck in low power mode.

    I'll play over the weekend, but think I'll be giving Intaride a all on Monday.

    Glad I tested it on the bench before taking the bike apart.

    Update, looks like the other Intaride radio I was using was set to sub channel 10, got out a Midland radio I have and the Bluetooth headset (even BMW one) transmits a treat.

    Now I only need to figure out how to switch from low power mode.

    Got my replacement headset yesterday, checked it out, then fitted into helmet. Used the radio just at home, seems fine. Went for a ride today, with the boss on the back. Intercom very clear, even at 140+kph, with ear plugs in. I'm using a wired set up. Old fashioned, still don't like bluetooth.

    The unit is under the seat, with the ariel laying flat beside top box rack.

    If you figure out the low to high setting, pls post.

    Are you keeping the antenna there or is it a temporary solution.

    Also what bike are you using ? Mines going on a 2014 RT

    Bike is a 2008 1200gs.
    The ariel is temp as is the positioning for the whole system, as I have a new Triple Black arriving in January, and I didn't want to get into any 'heavy' fitting mods while trying to sell the bike.

    So first fit mockup in place.

    With any luck, I'll get it fitted in the next week, but am out on the bike tomorrow.

    Before any tosser mentions it, wires will be tided up and not left as loose as they are!

    If you want to switch power 10W, you need to open "S TXP ON" in the special mode and switch "TX PWR H" in the setting mode.
    Please refer as below linking of video to open "S TXP ON". ^^

    Keep the updates coming up Wobble as I will be getting one of these systems and I like the way you are mounting it.

    PS. What is the box with the red and yellow knobs to the left of the Hawk for and what it the box mounted above it?

    It's on, just waiting for one extra antenna connection, then I'll document it.

    The red and yellow knobs are the radio warm n safe heat troller (electric cod piece heater).

    I put it in a small black plastic box from maplin, and this makes it less obvious what it is. The bracket for the box is a black plastic 6mm thick sheet from eBay, and it screws into the GS style mirrors.
