Yup, I've heard that screech a few times
after riding through a "frog strangler" rain storm,
goes away when everything dries out,
I always thought is was my mike.
come to think of it my 2002 did it also.
The only thing those two bikes have in common is my headsets.

Has this ever happened to you? I was riding back from the fish tank the other day and got caught in a really heavy rain. I was listening to FM radio through the intercom ( five pin Auto Comm) and all of a sudden a loudest screeching static noise came through the headset speakers. I first turned off the radio, thinking I had hit static and when the noise didn't stop, I quickly disconnect the audio cable. I'm surprised that I can hear as the noise really was deafening!

All I can think of is that rain got into the cable connection and shorted out something. A day later the cable connection is dry and there is no unwanted noise. I ride in the rain occasionally and this was a first. I might have pulled the connection before the ride and that allowed the rain to seep in. Gona be extra careful next time....
