Re: Does 2005+ display RDS Radio info?
While my '05 is being worked on, I swapped the bikes around and started riding the '03 again. No issues with RDS info displaying for radio stations. Song titles and all that are scrolling just fine. Last evening I backed the '03 into the garage listening to the radio, shut it down and went over and turned on the '05 to the same station to see if it was station related, I noticed the reception was really poor. It was picking the station up but no where near as well.
So - I started looking at the antenna... I noticed the '05 antenna is about 5" shorter and appears to be fiberglass. The one on my '03 is metal. I doubt the '05 is an aftermarket because it sure looks stock. Did they change the antenna on the '05 model? Does anyone else have reception issues? I am wondering if I don't get RDS song info on the '05 because the antenna is crappy and not pulling in the distant radio stations well enough to get the RDS.
