gl1500 radio

Post by donhiatt » Mon Sep 01, 2014 8:17 am

just had my gl1500 radio repaired for the second time by Sierra Electronics Motorcycle Audio Store.
my radio was having a problem with the volumn control knob.sometime it would fail to adjust the sound level and or just work at 3/4 sound level.
sent in and sierrra could make it duplicate the problem,had them replace the voulmn control anyway just to rule out my cord connects as a problem.
got it back but could only get volumn at 3/4 high to high-- no low adjustment.
send back and the replaced all the controls and the pc board..
radio now works like it was brand new.
cost to repair was $125 plus freight <$15>
turn around time was about 3 weeks -- but it saves tring to buy one off the net for $200 plus.
i did have the extra shipping charge to return it for the second time-- but because they cound not get it to fail the first time it had to go back
result was a good job and this is a good company.
i could not find another company to repair my goldwing oem radio.
