Audio not as loud since speedometer quit working.

My speedometer went out Saturday and now the radio is not as loud. Is there a way to fix this while I wait for the new part? Or am I just going senile and not aware of it yet?

When your speedo cable/gear breaks, you lose your speed/odometer, cruise control, self cancelling turn signal feature, as well as your AVC (Automatic Volume Control), which increases/decreases volume according to speed.

As Dusty mentioned, when the speedo cable is broken the AVC thinks the bike isn't moving. Turn off AVC and crank the volume up, you should be OK.
