LED AUXILIARY LAMPS Issue

So I installed these extra lights over this weekend, nice and bright, the problem is that, they interfere with the stereo fm/dab radio signal, when switched on, the rest of the audio system is fine. I have a Denali powerhub2 on order perhaps that will eliminate this issue.

bike ; K1600GTL E 2015 FULL AUDIO SYSTEM
AUTOCOM SPA WITH 2273 music interface
LED ebay led bulbs connected through relay and it's own switch

Considered a EMI as per photo

any advice will be appreciated

Re: LED AUXILIARY LAMPS Issue

If the LED bulbs have a cooling fan on them, that is your issue. Something like this would be a better choice:

Based on my experience with my RT, the radio still had interference with the non-fan led lights. My best guess is that somehow I messed up the antenna's ground cable when removing the "cone". What I was planning to do but I sold my RT before I got a change to do it was to purchase another antenna that others have installed on their bikes. I do not know if these other antennas need a proper ground.
