Headset not working

Postby decatur61 » Tue Oct 18, 2011 5:32 pm



I recently replaced the am/fm, cb, and intercom radios on my 1983 Aspencade trike. There is no volume coming through my headset. I checked the cb with a biker friend of mine. In his headset, he can hear me key the mike on my cb but I am not transmitting my voice to him through the mike on my headset. He took MY headset and transmitted from his cb to my trike. It came through on my speakers. Therefore, my headset seems to be ok and it looks like the problem is internal to my trike. Using my headset again on my trike, he tried to transmit from his cb to me but I could not hear him through my headset, although, it came through the speakers when I had them selected. Anybody have any ideas?

Many thanks.

It sounds like something is disconnected. Follow the wires on your headset from where you plug them in, into the fairing (you'll have to remove the left pocket to do this - or cassette player, if you have that option installed), and into the component terminal (metal box on left side of fairing). I'm willing to bet you've got something that's come unplugged at some point.

Thanks !! I will do that. Was just looking online at the Type II installation manual and saw on the wiring diagram where the headset plugs into the component terminal.
