Just getting around to posting my radio decision. Appreciate everyone's advice and input. Thank you PCI for your help and support. As well as a thanks to eBay for great deals.

It's the Kenwood TK-790H (Remote Head), with the PCI 4 Link Pro Elite Package 2
2 Seat Intercom Kit, and wired my helmets.

Dan, does the bottom of the NMO mount interfere with the sunroof? My '14 has different ribbing to yours too (raised) so I think I will need to drill further back.

Thanks,
K
