So while on a 2000 mile trip to New Orleans and FL my radio started acting funny. It would randomly change stations and even jump from FM to WB to AM and so forth. It happens every few seconds and wouldn't stop. I installed cycle vision +2's 13000+ miles ago and this problem just started. I pulled apart the right side switches and found that the wire cover was slightly torn but the wires look fine though. The only thing I could narrow it down to so far was that it only does it when it is humid. I searched around and couldn't find anything. Anyone dealt with thus before? Any help would be great!

Did it by chance get rained on? Some seem to have issues, mine included, if they get wet. I think it's more the head unit than switches.

Switch or harness. Probably not the head unit.
Test to see if the defect exists without the bike running.
If not, you have a wire hitting ground or a defective switch, either reacting to vibration

I forgot to say that I can only get it to do it while rolling. Even revving in neutral won't make it do it. And yes the bike has seen its fair share of rain however when it started it was only humid out. When everything warmed up and dried out it stopped but once humid again it started acting up.

I had the same problem after a heavy rain - jumping from IPOD to AM or weather band but it stopped when it dried out.

The frustrating thing for me was it started before it even started to rain. It was just early morning and humid. And it had been months prior that it was in any rain. I hate throwing parts at it but I'm thinking about just replacing the right side switches to eliminate the cheapest possibility first. I'm having trouble finding a PN. Anyone have it?
