I'm at Wit's End!!!
2016 FLTRUSE with Stage II, Thundermax ECU, 6.5 GT, stored with battery tender. This weekends 700 mile ride started Friday with no AM/FM/Media/Satelite. Only CB/Intercom working. Adjusting volume the display for "Prompts" was displayed, not "Volume". Ten mile into the ride, as I am slowing and down shifting the engine dies & won't restart. Popping the clutch brought me to a stop. Turning the ignition off & on again, there was no change. Only after turning off the ignition and letting the bike sit for 20-30 seconds she restarted. Through the day, aprox 50% of the time when starting I would get no good time radio. Twice, i even had no CB/Intercom.
Saturday, the same scenarios repeated, though as we continued to ride, the No radio scenario would repeat less frequently.
Today, Sunday, I start with all systems working. We ride across a fairy, restarting, I am now in No CB/Intercom scenario. At a stop I turn the bike off, and restart, all systems are go. No "good time radio" scenadio repeated twice through the day.
Though the weekend I had no further problems running or keeping an idle.
Is it the GT 6.5 Infotainment Center going Fritz? Or is it the ThunderMax teasing the GT 6.5 system? Or something else? As the entire bike gets warmer things seem to operate better, so the connection is better.
Don't ride faster than your angels can fly.
