Looking for some help, I just installed a HOG TUNES amp on my 2011 CVO roadglide, this is going to be wired to power two speakers in my lower fairing. I taped into the four unused pins on the ultra harness that are labeled Rear speakers at the back of the radio. Problem is I don't have any sound coming from those pins, does anyone know if there is a flash to turn on the rear speaker outputs? The factory front and rear speakers are all being powered via the HK AMP and getting there signal from the front speaker output as far as I can tell. Any help is greatly appreciated...


thanks,


Mark

Knowing Just enough to be dangerous, and dwnloading a pdf of the HK radio manual, here is a bit you might check

The SPKR switch found on the FLTR is inoperable.
Off/Forward: In the forward position, the speakers are off.
Audio (radio, CD/MP3, AUX and CB) is played in the headsets
only. During simultaneous CB reception, the other audio source
is muted and only the CB is heard in the headsets.
Center: In the center position, the radio, CD/MP3 player or
AUX is played over the speakers while the CB is played only
in the headsets.
On/Rearward: In the rearward position, the speakers are on.
With the SPKR indicator lit, the radio, the CD/MP3 player, or
any AUX device and the CB are played through both the rider
and passenger speakers. When a CB signal is received, other
audio sources mute and the CB is played over the speakers.
Refer to Table 4.
NOTE
The intercom is only heard in the headsets, regardless of the
SPKR switch position.

Read a few pages farther in the manual.
Rider to Passenger Speaker Balance
The receiver FADER control balances the front rider and rear
passenger speakers.
NOTE
FADER is available only on the FLHTCU equipped with rider
front and passenger rear speakers.
FADER: With the fairing speaker switch in either the SPKR or
center position, press the AUDIO switch to cycle through Bass
to Treble to Fade in the LCD. Or with the motorcycle stationary,
press the left hand AUDIO switch once to enter the Bass display
and select Fade with the MODE SEL switch or with the
soft key.
The LCD displays the word Fader and a row of outlined rectangles.
The smaller center rectangle indicates equal balance
between front and rear speakers. A single solid rectangle
moves left or right of the center dash as the balance of volume
is switched from the passenger speakers (to the left) to the
rider speakers (to the right). See C in Figure 11.
• Press the AUDIO switch up (+) to raise the volume from
the rider speakers while lowering the volume from the
passenger speakers.
• Press the AUDIO switch down (-) to raise the volume from
the passenger speakers while lowering the volume from
the rider speakers.

from what i've read, you can tap into the rear speaker outputs with no problem (same volume as front), but if you want to have fader control, that has to be flashed via the dealer.

It's a free flash at the dealer. Don't let them try to charge you for it.

Well, to be more correct, Harley does not charge the dealer for the download for the Fader. Harley does charge for other downloads, like Intercom, and ECM upgrades. The dealer then charges you for the download. They may and can also charge the labor for installing it.

So the dealer may try to charge for the Fader. But many dealers will not charge a regular customer, or someone that they might think may become a regular one.

I would ask. If they want to charge, say I'll think about it and check another dealer to find one that will not charge. You might tell them that you know that Harley does not charge them and your a good customer.
