2017 RGS Radio Flash

I installed a Biketronics amp and front speakers, the rear speakers are HD on the King Tour Pak. Took the bike in yesterday to have it flashed, by the dealer. They told me they couldn't do it because it was after market equipment and not HD. Any body else having problems with getting the flash from HD? Thanks

Guess that I would ask why you're flashing? That has been a real hit and miss proposition lately. Is something on the radio not working correctly (fader control for example), or are you just trying to flatten the EQ?

If I'm not mistaken, HD did away with any flash for aftermarket audio. No dealers are supposed to do it to flatten the EQ anymore. Harley felt it was looking audio sales on the Boom, so they made dealers stop doing it. You may find one that will still flash for 4 speakers if you add some, but that's about it.

That is what I did, added 2 rear speakers, had this system on a 2015 RGS and there wasn't any problem to flash it. The amp and line leveler shouldn't matter, the radio needs to be told that it has 4 speakers instead of 2, then it will have the fade, F to R and L and R adjustment.

Moco took the flash away for aftermarket audio... correct...

However... there are Indy shops that have the capability to flash with an aftermarket flash computer... Soundz Customz has one that they sell... not worth it to buy for just one setup though... find a shop near you doing audio for the 14 and newer scoots... they should have the computer to flash it correctly....

In the early days of Rushmore audio, I was always told and read that ideally the flash is done prior to the installation of any aftermarket gear. Guess that's water under the bridge now since the upgrade is done.

Besides finding an independent to do it, the only other solution I can think of is to pull the AMP, line leveler and aftermarket front speakers, then take it to a dealership and tell them you're adding a pair of HD OEM fairing speakers up front and need fader / balance control. Get the flash done and then reinstall everything.

If you're unlucky like me, and live in part of the country where you don't have access to an Indy with the right equipment, you might be able to reach out to one of the Audio sellers here and inquire about sending your head unit in for the right flash.
