Just make sure you can yell really loud in case you happen to need the horn and the thing is connected to your chatterbox...

It can be done and has been. Don(I1aCBR) has done it on his 900RR. It is a really nice job. I have seen it with me own little eyes. I'm sure he would be happy to give you some info on how he did it.

Hey Dad, can I borrow the chatterbox? I promise I'll put it back when I'm done.

"Often" because acceleration of ANY bike with his big ass on it would be considered "hard". Not to mention the fact that straight line acceleration is the only aspect of riding a sportbike that he can exploit.

It's only a problem during hard accelleration. Which is pretty often though.

Is your bike that loud? Or is the system that sensitive? My bike is not too loud, but still has the stock exhaust. I may just be used to my car which you can hear idle at about 150 feet (has straight pipes and high flow mufflers) so everything else sounds quite to me.

Dad The Chatterbox works great. Mine was purchased at a Pittsburgh dealer for $148. which is an excellent price as far as I can tell. He does give his regular customers a nice break on accessories. On group rides they work well for safety but when moving at a good clip, we only talk to advise road conditions, traffic, etc. Too distracting otherwise. The vox works even in to triple digits if you blow in it first with the sensitivity set to two or three clicks off of the least sensitive position. Some of the louder bikes will trigger it when they're really hard on the gas but I don't find that objectionable most of the time and all they have to do is turn down the sensitivity on their unit. The charge seems to last more than twelve hours but I understand that it is affected by how much you talk and may be less when playing music.
