Radio aux input

Hi Fellas. Does anyone have a better diagram and explanation of Bob Anderson's write-up of fitting an auxiliary input to the 1500 radio? The photos are not clear and the text is all mumbled up so is difficult to follow. I had an aux input already fitted and was working perfect as long as there was a...

Re: Goldwing 1500 trike.

Many thanks for your reply baba67. I'm looking at the Panther trike manufactured in UK. It looks nice with the side 'running boards' type set-up. Very expensive though but I'm really interested. If you'd like to see it just Google Panther Trikes. Thanks again. Gerry.

Goldwing 1500 trike.

Hi guys. Thinking about either buying or converting my 1500 to a trike. Never thought I'd go that route but I find now at 61 and with wife on board I'm not so confident through slow moving traffic any more. Any advice would be welcome on this subject. Trikes seem very expensive here in UK / Ireland....

Re: Goldwing 1500 SE radio problem.

Mine has quit on a couple of occasions and I bought 2 off e-bay one was dead when it got here and the other died after 3 months. I finally sent mine into sierra and let them go thru it and when I got it back it sounded better and never had a problem since. If you wend it in you know what you have w...

Re: Goldwing 1500 SE radio problem.

I would check the solder lands at the neck of the radio for an open land. This is the most common problem I have found with the 1500 audio unit. When checking it out just put upper pressure on the connectors at the radio. Thanks for your reply Wayne. I checked the neck of the unit and re-soldered s...

Re: Goldwing 1500 SE radio problem.

Well Guys, The radio worked well for the past year but has once again started to do the same thing. This time though I pulled it apart and checked to see if any were any broken or dry joints but found nothing. I sprayed inside the volume and other rotary knobs again but still going high and low volu...

Re: Goldwing 1500 SE radio problem.

Well I hope you are right! It's still working away anyway so I'll keep from buying a replacement for the moment. Thanks to all of you who showed an interest in this topic.

Re: Goldwing 1500 SE radio problem.

Well guys, I pulled out the radio and left it on the FM channel as I stripped off it's bottom plate. It kept going from high to low volume while I did this. I probed all around the circuit board with my finger in case I might find a bad connection or dry solder joint but no matter what I did made no...

Re: Goldwing 1500 SE radio problem.

Yeah but if the antenna or the coax cable was the problem surely the AM section of the radio wouldn't work would it? And the FM just goes high and low even if the bike is stationary without any vibration whatever. It's like something perhaps the FM receiver inside the radio is breaking down... By th...

Goldwing 1500 SE radio problem.

Hey Fellas, The FM part of my 1500 radio has gone very low and now I can't hear it while riding the bike. It just happened last night while riding home. The volume just kept going from high to low for an hour or so but now will not go to high volume at all. The AM part of the radio works fine and lo...

Re: Lower trunk & saddlebags spoilers 1500.

Dear Rob,
Those are not the parts I am looking for. The spoilers I want are the ones that go 'under' the trunk at rear and the spoiler that goes 'under' the saddlebags to rear and side. Not every 1500 has them but they look nice and gives the rear of the bike that 'finished' look.
Thanks;
Gerry.
