Thanks to this forum my 2003 radio was fixed with a new battery. Tuesday as I started off for my ride to work, no radio, just back lighting. Checked fuses, good, check all other bike functions, good, so I called Bob's. I spoke to a service writer, not the service techs, and asked what might be the problem. To their credit they said the radio is usually very dependable, but off the top without inspection it sounds like it may need replacing and it's expensive. When I got to work I checked this forum and tried the cable removal trick, nothing. The bike has the original battery so I thought what the heck, it needs a new one any how, so I swung by Bob's and picked up a new gel battery. Like magic ESPN radio was back on the air and no high dollar radio replacement was required. Thanks again for all the forum wisdom it saved me big bucks!!!!
Plus, now my "no post" banner will go away for a while.

Gene same thing happened to me. Glad to hear the fix worked for you as well.
