Overview: The SIR-PMK1 Pro
Motorcycle Kit provides mounting hardware and power connections for the most
recent Sportster (SP4), Starmate (ST4), and Stratus (SV3) Sirius plug and play
tuner models. The previous generation Sportster (SP3) and Starmate (ST3)
are also compatible, but require using the docking cradle from those tuner's car mounting kits
(the included cradle won't work with the older models, but should work with new
models going forward).
Mounting: The SIR-PMK1 comes
supplied with a cradle compatible with the Sirius Sportster 4, Starmate 4, and
Stratus models. Several other Sirius models (listed below) are also compatible,
but require use of the cradle included with their respective car mounting kits.
The cradle bolts to the included swivel bracket. The swivel bracket is then
mounted to the handlebars using the included handlebar clamp. The swivel bracket
is also compatible with many clutch and brake handle clamps, so the included
clamp may not be necessary. One of the two included antenna brackets is also
bolted in place with the swivel bracket.
Moisture Guard: Two moisture guard cases
are included; one fits the Sportster series 3 and 4, the other fits the Starmate
series 3 and 4 and the Stratus. The case covers the Sirius tuner and cradle once
Audio Integration: There three ways to
integrate the Sirius audio into your existing stereo:
- Line output:
use the 3.5mm stereo mini-jack on the cradle to feed the aux input of the
stereo or in-helmet headphone system (some high efficiency headphones can be
powered without an amp)
- Built-in FM Modulator:
depending on placement, the FM modulator built into the Sirius tuner may
transmit wirelessly to the existing stereo
- FM Direct:
the optional FM Direct relay (item number 607FMDA25) can be added for a
wired FM modulated connection
Dual Voltage Power Adapter: Even though
all the Sirius tuner models the Pro Motorcycle Install Kit is designed for
operate on 5.2 volt power supplies, the included adapter has dual voltage
outputs. The adapter features the following
- 2-Pin Connector: use the supplied 5.2 volt cable to
power your Sirius tuner
- 3-Pin Connector: use the supplied 12 volt cable
to power your Sirius tuner
- Power/Ground Leads: Two 16"
wire leads used to supply power and ground that will be attached to your
