Radio Reception - 2015 R1200RT

Hi all,

After changing the front headlight bulb and oil, disconnecting / reconnecting seat, and disconnecting / reconnecting top case and using the GS-911 to reset service reminder, my FM radio reception is aweful.

Any ideas of what I may have done to cause this and how to diagnose it?

I know the radio isn't the greatest, but until this reception problem started, it was good enough for me.

Did you remove the speaker to gain access to the headlight? If so, have you dislodged the aerial connection at either end?

Since I pulled the nose off of my 08 RT a couple of times, my radio has static. I am thinking the ground wire may have a bad connection. If I touch the antenna the radio works fine. Also, with the motor off the radio works fine.
