Communicator beap every 3 minutes

Post by James Riopelle »

Purchased a 2003 Goldwing and I am using my head sets from my 2000. Every 3 minutes a double beap
sound is heard in the head phones. Bike did not come with a manual. Any ideas how to get rid of the noise?

I cannot help you with the beeping sound, but I can help with a manual. Check your Private Messages.

Switch your audio on and press the right round knob on the radio. Watching the display, press the knob repeatedly until you see "beep on" on the display.

Turn it to off and repeat the process until you see "roger beep", then turn that to off as well.

I believe you have an ABS model and what you are hearing is the ABS self test. If you put your fingers on the brake lever you will be able to feel the pulses at the same time as the beeps.
