Radio and clock not displaying

Post by KLSTOCKBRIDGE » Sun Jul 21, 2013 10:58 am

When I turn on the bike for the first time in the morning the radio and clock display does not come until I drive awhile. Is there a simple thing I can do to fix this problem?[

Read the 4th post in this thread: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=17797
I had a similar issue, where everything worked as normal, but taking the slightest bump in the road would cause the LCD and/or stereo to "flicker." Perhaps they might even go totally out while on the road. And purposely hitting a bump wouldn't have any affect, good or bad....yet whilst riding along, hitting a seemingly insignificant bump and all would come back alive!!
This drove me NUTS. Turned out to be a problem with the fuse, NOT a bad fuse though. Read the thread I linked above.
Keep the rubber side down.
