It should be installed in the left fairing pocket, but if it's not, here is the part number to buy one. It's basically a headset cord with a grommet and a special connector on one end to plug into the bike's connector under the pocket.

39170-MCA-000

Part number for Auxiliary Input Patch Cord is 39170-MCA-000. A Google search on the part number will show several sources.
Electrical Connections sells a ground loop isolator which replaces the patch cord http://www.electricalconnection.com/audio/filter-gli.htm . I had a whining noise in the aux audio from my Zumo 550 that was eliminated by the isolator.

Could be packaged with the Owner's Manual in the rear holder of the Left baggage box. If PO never installed it. EC sells (or used to anyway) one with a filter inline.

The EC on is 6' long, enough to reach the left handlebar and us a RAM mount.

MP3 player

You might want to consider an MP3 player that plugs into the CD connector under the seat. It allows you to control the volume and change songs and folders using the handlebar controls on the bike. I have a bikeMP3 that works very well. www.bikeMP3.com

I have a couple of them that I'm not using. Ever get down Seneca way? It's about 45 miles, depending on which way you go. If you still need one, drop me a note at [email protected]
You might want to consider the bikemp3 that Rayjoe mentioned, too. They are great.

What I need is a "Motorcycle Audio for Dummies"! Small words and short sentences and lots of pictures. I simply have never been exposed to the electronics industry and I don't understand anything about it. I don't understand the parts, the names of the different connections or anything else about the audio system. When I start to read the threads, I get the feeling that the poster "assumes" I have some degree of knowledge. That is just not the case. Don't assume I know anything. It is frustrating.

Did they include the operators manual with the bike? (sometimes they are in the back of the LH luggage compartment (saddlebag) with the tool kit)

The only thing I don't like about the MP3 player plugged into the CD harness is the fact that it has no "random" mode to play the music. You have to listen to an entire album or set of music before it goes to the next. The MP3 player in my left pocket allows me to play the random mode.
