2009 K1200LT Radio Issues
I had a 1999 LT with no radio issues, I totaled the bike about 3 years ago ( no injuries) and purchased a low mileage 2009 LT
The weather radio function has never worked for me on the 2009, Dealer said they cant repair that anyway. Occasionally the radio does not always come on, flip the ignition switch and it usually comes on. This weak, the radio was on but all I heard was a low buzz when I started the bike, So I tried restarting the bike and no change. Later that day I flipped the radio on to hear the same buzz, then I changed to low beam and the radio came to life. High beam, just buzz, which increases as the RPMS increase.
Then while riding with the low beam on, radio on I had to apply the brakes, and the radio went off. Then in a few seconds back on. I tried apply rear of front brake and no difference, radio went silent then back on.
So before I take it to the dealer, I thought I would see what other experiences were out there etc. I have a feeling the radio is not a serviceable item at the dealer.
