This is my 3rd year of ownership of an 05 LT. One by one, my speakers stopped working until I was just left with the rear driver's-side speaker. I switched to Bluetooth, but sorely missed my bike speakers so I recently decided to take a chance on "chrischenusa", who is a forum member. I sent him my radio and he returned it within a couple of business days. I just installed it yesterday and my radio sounds better than ever with all speakers working. He even helped me hook my radio up so I can run my phone through my bike speakers. Very happy with the purchase and really appreciate his communication throughout. If there is anyone out there that misses having a functional LT radio, I strongly urge you to consider doing business with him.

Yet another reason I love BMWLT.com. I already had Saddleman rebuild my FD, which was also a great experience. These forums are priceless!! :clapping:

That's awesome to hear successful alternatives to these radios, I am encouraged as every thing I've read thus far almost requires you be a rocket scientist just to get to the source of the problem. Nothing on this bike is easy.

Couldn't and wouldn't own an LT without this forum.

I'm wondering about your bluetooth setup. Did you connect it to the bike's audio and sent it to your helmet? Do you have a com system in your helmet with bluetooth? If so what brand? Did you opt for "chrischenusa" bluetooth adapter? Please tell me more as I'm currently using a FM transmitter connected to my LT's audio to receive it on the FM radio in my helmet. I have my phone connected to my Zumo 660 and the Zumo connected to my Nolan 104 N-Com B4. Problem is when a local FM station over powers my FM transmitter and I loose the bike's audio.

Since I don't wear my full-face helmet that much, I went cheap and got a Bluetooth adapter and added speakers. The grand total is less than $60 and it sounds great! I haven't synced my Garmin GPS with it, but it works perfectly with my phone for music and talking.

I still much prefer good old fashioned bike speakers, though (except when I want to talk on the phone, which is rare). I don't like not being able to hear what's going on around me.

So, who is this " chrischenusa". I might red his expertise for the radio on my newly purchased 2005LT. This bike has less than 7k miles. Any other suggestions? Front speakers are fine only the rear are not working

Check my response to your other post as it may just be a loose connector.
