Re: Garmin 665 /GXM40 issue
Where on the right side case did you mount it? Was it forward of the handle or toward the rear, by the where the key is. Just a thought but if it's towards the rear and you have a top case I could see were you might not get a good signal some of the time. It would depend on which direction you were driving in relationship to the satellite. As hillcruiser pointed out he mounted his under the fairing, I also tried that. It's looked great because it couldn't be seen but the reception I got was terrible.
You might also check the power/feed to the Centech fuse panel. Check connections at the panel and at the battery. I can't help from telling you to check everything, it's the electrician in me. I've been one for 30 years.
That's great that Garmin sent you a new XM40, hopefully that'll take care of it. I'm lucky cause I only live about 15 minutes from Garmin and a few months back they opened up a service area within the facility where you can take your stuff and have them check it out.
