GL1200 Limited Radio system problems.......Please Help

Post by r22helopilot » Sat Apr 10, 2010 2:27 pm


I am new here. I just bought an 85 limited. The radio lights up as well as the CB. I get no audio thru the speakers. I opened the left side of the fairing up and found the front and rear CB 5pin din connectors just paying there, the 5 ping connectors for the multi changer are coming out of the fairing and are there to connect headsets to. Is this correct? all of the rest of the wires appear to be connected.

Make sure the radio isn't set to headset - press the intercom control knob in, which switches it from speakers to headset. If it's in headset mode, the display will show "HS".

Also, make sure the mute button (on the handlebars) isn't turned on.

I have 1.5 hours in an R-22, btw. Very humbling experience. :)
