Clock resets every time bike starts.

I assume it is because of a battery that keeps time when bike is off, does anyone know if it is feasible to replace the battery in the radio? Where it is and how to do it would be great as well. Bike has 50k on it so not sure how long those last

I can't imagine that the radio doesn't have a constant power source for when it is turned off. For some reason that constant power is being interrupted when starting or the feed isn't live to begin with. Check a manual to find which write provides the constant power and check backwards.

There's definitely a power interruption somewhere. There should be a constant power source from the battery somewhere

There is no battery in radio for keeping time, it needs constant power from bike. I wonder if something is actually wrong with the radio (capacitor or something), if it were me i would hook directly to battery just to test to see if you can make it do the same thing hooked directly and go from there

how old is your battery? if voltage drops too much on startup your radio looses power. check bike battery with meter or take somewhere to get checked.

There is a constant source of power going to the radio from the bike's electrical system.


Try replacing fuse 21 if you have it. This diagram is for an 09 glide.

Clock Issue

PGR... thanks for posting. I was planning on pulling this out of my manual today but just didn't get around to it.

But if you pull out your manual, won't your kitchen table wobble?
