    The wires are in opposite order and V1 requires the mute wire to work. Ask Jimbonzz - he knows!

    He actually did PM me about it.
    I basically said that the V1 is an expensive unit, and I wouldn't take any chances. I told him that I had read on the forum that a few people had done it before, but not to take my word for it.

    I know the pinout of the V1 well, but I never bothered to check the RX-65...

    phill why do you want to do that? ...... and i think you can use a telephone cord if you want a low profile doctor for the bike 8)
    I do not think that Mike V would design a cord that would be compatible with a bell's Rx 65 unit :roll: , but on the other hand could it be that bell base a designed on V1's cord :mrgreen:it may work (dont think so) good luck let me know how you get on.

    I had simple phone wire for powering RX65 with two lines inside - red for voltage, green for ground.

    I got V1 and tested that the order of lines were opposite. I switched them in phone wire, but V1 didn't start - it requires the Mute grounding.

    $60ish? You can get the power adapter for $13 (or with the cord for $19), plus the wire tap (if you need it) for $1. And this is direct from VR. So you're out 20 bucks plus shipping at worst.
