My radio system quit on me about 50 miles into a 600 mile ride to the great state of WV. Mine would act as if it was powering up then - nothing. I couldn't play CDs or the radio. I got used to the (refreshing) silence pretty quick. When I got back, the Charlotte service guy told me it was toast. Replacement was a whopping $300.00 plus. He just happened to have an old one from a crashed LT that he sold me for $100.00. I had it installed and it's been working fine. Naturally, my bike was out of warranty. I wish I knew more about electronics, I would have torn that baby apart and tried to fix it. Probably costs about 22.50 to fix, who knows..
There is a guy in Morganton NC who sells nothing but used or crash/pirated BMW parts and a lot of folks in these parts use him with good results. If yours is gone, you might want to check into the used market for one.
Good luck with that,
