To provide maximum riding safety, the Interphone Handlebar Remote is an innovative Bluetooth® remote control that mounts easily on handlebars. With a convenient joystick, you can easily access all Interphone F5 functions in complete safety, without taking your hands off the bars. Thanks also to the voice wizard (TTS) on the Interphone F5, the many functions offered by the Interphone F5 can be enjoyed very easily and without taking your eyes off the road
Tamper-proof mounting screws make the remote easy to install and difficult for thieves to remove.

I looked at a number of communications gizmos and what sold me was the combination of the F5 headset and this thing. Having controls right at the handlebars is comfortable and convenient, and saves that moment or ten you would have otherwise spent reaching up to your helmet and adjusting - whatever. If you have an F5, which is pretty sweet to begin with, it absolutely improves the experience. If you don't have a communications system and you're a bit of a control freak, (e.g. you'd rather be on the bike controls, and riding) this was made with you in mind.
Installation-wise, note that this unit is designed to mount ON the left hand grip. In my case, it did not fit aftermarket heated grips which are slightly larger than the fitment specs allow. I made a strap instead: stainless steel, black oxide finish, with some adhesive foam weatherstripping in key spots to keep things in place and cut down on vibration. I mounted it directly on the handlebar, between the horn/light/turn signal assembly and the clutch bracket. It looks and works great, (disclaimer: if you need such a solution, hire a professional mechanic). Also worth mentioning: it ships with two different size brackets which should cover most situations, clever fasteners and a special tool to install or remove them, extra hardware, and a tiny screwdriver to open the battery compartment. If you have an F5, this won't come as a surprise - everything is fully thought-out and in the box.
Operation-wise it couldn't be simpler - joystick, thumb, that's it - and easy to use with gloves. You don't even have to switch it on or off. I've been using the handlebar remote for over a year, and it continues to work great, on the original battery, (which is included, of course).

L Y: I decided on this so I wouldn't have to keep taking my hands off the handle bars to control the module. Also, in the winter, I wear heavier gloves and occasionally hit two buttons at once on the module. This just seemed a smarter move.Apr 3, 2014
