Can anybody tell me if you can manualy tune radio to local stations, I have no manuals to tell me if you can or not. I just recently purchased the bike, most of the radio stuff on the fairing was destroyed, I"ve got power and speakers are hooked up, but no sound. Also if someone can tell me were i can go to download owners manual that would be great. thanks wingers.

Hi Vettstir....
On your left side handlebar you should have a combination MUTE/UP-DOWN channel switch. I am assuming you have the factory goldwing radio/tape player.
If you do have this radio and no switch, I have seen them readilly available on ebay....Good luck, and enjoy your wing..

Yes, you have to tune it with the switch on the left handlebar. There is no tuning available on the radio itself. Vettstir, I have the same bike with a PDF of my owners manual. Send me a pm if you still need it.
