I have a 2004 RG that was in storage for 6 months. The battery went dead so i put it on the trickel charger over night and now it fires up no problem. The issue i do have is with my radio. All the lights on it work and it will spin a cd how ever nothing comes out of the speakers. i flip the speaker switch back and forth still nothing. Any ideas?? just about to do an upgrade to a sony head unit and some 6 1/2 but not there yet. so far the radio and speakers are stock.

BigDaveOnBass had a similar problem in that only one speaker died. He picked up a used stock headunit from a member and now he has no problems

That doesnt make much sense. Have you tried disconnecting the battery? Other than that I would remove the speaker switch and see if its working.

I'm thinking your head unit has given up the fight. However, you might want to pm BigDaveOnBass. He might have some suggestions for you to check seeing how he had a similar issue.

Sounds like your going to have to remove the outer fairing to check wiring and speakers. So either the mute function is on, the speaker switch doesnt work, or the radio has lost output function, unless the speakers are bad. Again, there doesnt seem to be much that makes sense with this. Other than that you may want to try ironcross audio for repair, should you decide to retain the factory radio.

Pull your outer fairing and check the speakers with a small battery to see if they pop, then you will know if its the speakers or the radio.
