Needing help with Hondaline CB

Postby refuelman » Wed Apr 07, 2010 8:24 pm



I am new to the Goldwing line. I have got an 1984 Aspencade, the CB comes on and the radio works fine even the auto volume. I do not have any head sets to use, I was told that I could still hear the CB through the radio speakers. Can anyone help?
Thanks, Joe in Oklahoma

If it's like the 1100s then yes you should be able to hear the CB through the speakers. Have you tried adjusting the squelch control, you should hear static towards one end of it's adjustment.
I know there are user manuals for the 1100 audio, have you checked for 1200 manuals?

On the radio there is a knob for selecting headset or speakers.

try that

Thanks for the reply, yes I have tried the squelch both was with no sound coming out of speakers other than the radio it self. I have looked and found a wiring and installation manual, but have not found a operators manual.
Yes, I know about the head set knob. What do I need to do with it, the CB has one as does the radio.
Thanks Joe

If the CB is working, when you have the radio on, coming through the speakers and you receive a transmission (RX should show on the CB) the Radio should cut out and the cb sound should come through the speakers.

Even if there is no actual transmission if you turn the squelch knob on the CB it should activate the multichanger box and cut out the radio.

If this isnt happening then either the CB or the multichanger box could be defective.

remove the left pocket, locate the multichanger, it is directly in front of the amplifier, reach in and put your fingers on it and turn the squelch knob back and forth, you should be able to sense a light click as the relays click.

make sure all the connections are good in the pocket, if the ID tapes have fallen off the cables make sure you ID each side as you disconnect them.

Thanks for all the info, Tricky. I have checked the multichanger for a click. I does click when you push the talk botton on the handlebar switch, but does not click when I turn the squelch knob. Sorry it took so long to get back with you, I have been out of town. Any other ideas?

The headset knob on the radio. Press to hear radio and CB over headset. HS will be displayed. Push again for speakers.

You are hearing the radio over the speakers the CB should also be heard. When you turn the squelch does the radio cut out?

If not, it sounds like the CB should be sent for servicing.

I just noticed something over the weekend. If I put a tape in the player the tape runs but the radio still plays, no matter what I do to or with the switchs. I am betting all of my problems are in the radio. What do you guys think?

obviously a problem with the tape section, but if your hearing the radio and the cb receives a signal the controlling part is the multichanger. It works like a two way switch to make a simple analogy. One way the cb goes to the amplifier the other that radio goes to the amplifier. The headset is not controlled by the multichanger.

You can feel the multichanger clicking that is the relays switching.

Are you certain that everything is wired up correctly, it is a rats nest under the left pocket, you don't know what the PO has done.

I don't have a tape player - does anyone know how this is supposed to work? Is it supposed to automatically mute the radio if you put a tape in? Does the radio volume control then control the tape volume output?

Yes.
When the tape is pushed in it switches to the tape, the sound output will still be switched off when the CB is keyed to transmit or if it receives.

Mine doesn't work that way. I have to hit the button that picks between the tape and the radio. I have a tape in it most of the time, but usually listen to the radio.

Your right, I havnt used the tape more than ten times in 25 years, I thought it just automatically switched to tape when the tape was inserted fully.

Hey guys, sorry to open an old thread. I used the search feature and saw this thread and after searching through a good bit of the others...this looked like the best route without opening a new thread.


I'm having trouble with the CB on my 86 gl1200 Interstate. Everything seems to work on it (it's also in excellent condition). When I press the PTT button, the TX signal shows up on the screen... no transmission is sent though not even the usual clicking sound. On the other hand, I can not hear any transmissions either (through headset or speakers). However, when I play with the squelch knob, it does cut the radio out as if it's receiving a transmission. I'm wondering if maybe the CB is not hooked up to the antenna? Thanks for any and all help guys

If the bike is new to you ask the PO if it was working for him

If it just started to act like this, I would check the connections under the left pocket.
If there are two antenna's check that one is connected to the CB or that the one feeding the radio has a splitter to send signal to the CB
Still not working give http://www.sierra-mc.com/ a call

Tricky- Where would the splitter be located if indeed it has one? I looked in the pocket on the left and I didn't see any wires hanging around lonely.
