Delphi SkyFi XM Radio
I'm toying with adding a [URL=http://www.xmradio.com/catalog/product_detail.jsp?id=28449&type=Tuner]Delphi SkyFi XM radio [/URL] for my K100 RS but I'm not sure how I would go about getting audio out of it. I don't currently have a radio on my bike right now and don't really want to add one. I'm curious if anyone sells a bluetooth system that could be utilized for this. Has anyone got any innovative ideas or suggestions? I've had XM in my cage for about 6 months and love it. Well worth the $$$ IMHO.

Try this [url]http://www.mixitproducts.com/[/url] Ijust got one last week and it works like magic. You can just plug headphones into the SkiFi and use the line out feature. It has 5 levels of volume. The mixit gives a true volume control plus you can add up to three other gizmoes,radar,GPS with voice.I have SkiFI,a Valintine and a iPod for when SkiFi gets old.
I've installed the Delphi on my R1100 GS, using a RAM mount. Turns out the regular RAM ball with the diamond shaped base mates perfectly with the auto adapter mount.
"They" say not to shorten the antenna lead... fortunately, it's pretty flexible, so I made a flat loop with the excess, wrapped some spiral wrap around it, then put some shrink tubing over *that,* and ty-wrapped the result to the handlebar mount. I used heavy duty Velcro to mount the antenna to the brake fluid reservoir.
For power, I got a cigarette lighter receptacle from Fry's and put a connector on it to mate with my custom power system.
There is no real volume control, so I built a MINT headphone amp <[url]http://tangentsoft.net/audio/mint/[/url]> (which I'm powering from the same receptacle).
For earphones, I'm using the Sony MDR-70's I got about a year ago (current model is the MDR-EX71SL). (I still can't bring myself to pay the $150 for the custom ones Bob Weis deals <[url]http://www.earplugco.com/[/url]>, butt maybe after my upcoming trip)...
