Some 2006 and up HK radios seem to have that issue (lose output to all speakers). It is temporarily remedied by toggling the speaker rocker switch or turning the radio on and off. The HK unit on my 06' FLHTCUSE has the problem and it is very annoying. This company fixes the problem (www.ironcrossaudio.com) if your bike is out of warranty. I think some dealerships send radios there for repair as well. I believe that you get a $50.00 discount as a forum member. Hope this info helps!

Thanks for that info Tom.  It is a repeating occurance, and the factory fix doesn't actually fix it.  Replacing radio with a known problem with another radio with the known problem pospones the the issus until it's out of warrenty.  However, since I have documented prrof of it happening twice, (Two different units) if it happens again I intend to fight that that problem was not resolved and make them continue to replace it under warrenty.

Ride Safe,

My wife rides a Dyna with a J&M Handlebar CB that takes MP 3 input.  The Zumo 550 she has MP3 output, so she plugs on into the other and voila.... She has tunes, CB communication to the dressers, GPS, and Bluetooth (Which she refuses to use).  Pretty slick actually.  She could add the XM antenna module but is happy with her MP3 tunes.

Hoist uses almost the same setup but since he hates to talk so much... umm... well at any rate he runs the Zumo out put into an amp and handlebar mounted speakers instead of a CB unit for tunes without headset.  Another slick set-up.

So now you need another excuse for riding a geezer glide.  My excuse is that I'm broken down old before my time and need a plush old man's bike to get around.

That and of course the fact that fairings are cooler then windshields.  Right Howie....? heheheh

Close JC! I use the Zumo 550 with the XM-40 antenna. So I have MP3/XM for music, besides all my GPS/traffic/weather functionality. The output goes to TWO amplifiers, a 100W Cycle Sounds amp for the 2 front speakers mounted on the handlebars, and a 150W Hawg Wired amp that feeds 2 rear Polk Audio 6-1/2" component speakers mounted in Dragonfly speaker pods installed on my KTP. I love my RK, but HATE fairings! So there's always another way to skin a cat music wise!!! Anything's better than settling for a fairing if ya only have one for the radio!!!

And Anti-Lock brakes.  The only two things she's missing.  If the MoCo hadn't screwed the pooch so bad on the Road Glide this year she might have bought one.  But she's not buying black or red (sorry for the misguided souls who believe red is faster...).  The frame is too wide for her to fit comfortably, and lowering it is not an option as she drags the hell out of a stock height bike.  The '08 frame works for her.  So she may buy a used '08 with what she wants one of these days.

Cruise control... Gotta remember that excuse.  I getting to old to admit I'm old.  Hysterical Laughing   Thumbs Up  Hysterical Laughing

You maybe should consider these, if you have modified the bike, added larger speakers, cams, stiffer mtr mounts and such.  The radio seems to help hold the vertical braces in place and if they move, it sort of turns the radio into an accordion.  Think about it, the heat sink is on the right side of the radio, inside there are some components attached to it as well as the circuit board.  If you flex them enough, they break and you see the results.  These braces appear to lock in the vertical supports and protect the radio. 

Harley changed the vertical braces in mid 08 to make them more rigid.  How many people have had the vertical brackets break? or does the CD skip while riding at different speeds due to the shake in the fairing?  These appear to help.  Tom 149 is putting them in his bike and we Will see how they help him. 

BTW, Iron Cross does a great job repairing the radios and they do add a number of things to them to help keep them working properly. 

I destroyed a radio before I understood the failure mode, since I replaced the radio and put these braces in place, I have over 5k miles on this radio (first radio didn't last very long, less than 1k)and it still works great.  (my opinion)  The CD rarely skips now.  Smoother ride at highway speed due to less shake. 

Let me know if you have any questions, Looking forward to hear what Tom 149 has to say.
