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 bought this to pair it with a F5MC interphone. It works just as expected, very easy to control with gloves.
It was a little difficult to install it on my left grip, because it was in the way of the clutch lever. So I ended up putting it directly on the handlebar, between the clutch lever and the left controls.
Yo can control the interphone with both hands on the handlebar.

safety, convenience, ergonomics
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).

David W: Seems like it would be safer and easier to use, rather than taking your hand off the bar to fiddle with buttons on your helmet.Dec 26, 2014
michael b: the idea is right, but I returned this item due to the fact that my hand would not fit completely on the handle of my bike. I have a BMW r100/7 and average hand size. I didn't like have part of my palm hanging off the hand grip, which defeats the added safety of a remote.Nov 6, 2014
Francis D: the most Awww some Intercom on the market and to make it even better the remote will keep your hands on the handlebars while ridingJul 23, 2014
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
Chuck S asked:Having an issue getting the handlebar remote to pair with my F5MC any suggestions?Sep 17, 2014
David W:If at first you don't succeed, try 20 or 30 more times. I did, and it finally paired. It was very easy the one time it paired. It was a little frustrating the previous 29 attempts that failed.Apr 21, 2015
A shopper asked:Will this device work with other Bluetooth devices? I'm happy with my current setup, except that I'd like a handlebar remote to control the audio stream from my Android phone. Will this work, either as a full-featured AVRCP device, or even to make simple track and volume changes?
I know the product description says "Compatible with the Interphone F5 only," but a guy can hope.Jul 3, 2014
David W:This remote will not control anything other than an Interphone bluetooth device. It pairs with the Interphone headset module, not your phone or any other BT device. However, if you pony up the extra couple hundred bucks to get the F5MC (or other compatible Interphone headset), that WILL control your music streaming app, activate voice dial/SIRI, etc. This is my setup, so with the remote I can rewind to beginning of song, skip to next song, ask Siri to send a text message to my wife, etc.Apr 27, 2015
Gordon J:i too would like to use this as a standalone remote for a smartphone, independent of a headset (sena, inter phone, or other). i understand that several of those bluetooth headsets can control a smartphone via voice and the headset unit, but like the original question, i'm wondering if anyone knows if this remote can be used as a AVRCP device, on it's own, to control the various functions on a smartphone.Feb 11, 2015
