I removed the CD changer from my bike, all was well for a few minutes, then the system went haywire! When I switch it on, the panel backlight comes on, no messages for about a minute, then it tell me "NO RADIO" for a few seconds and shuts itself down. None of the buttons work whilst this is going on.
I've tried disconnecting the battery to see if anything resets, no change. I put the cd changer back in, no change.
I'm resigned to repairing/replacing the unit (the radio/cassette under the stingray), but just in case I've missed something obvious I thought I'd consult the collective wisdom on here first? :confused:

If you just disconnected the cable in the saddle bag, that should not have caused any issues. How long did you have the negative terminal off the battery? A good 10 minutes should ensure the computer in the radio re-boots.

FIXED, blown fuse all working again!
New question, any recommendations for a new head unit (Sony, Pioneer etc) that will simply "plug and play" and work with the bikes handlebar controls?

Sorry, there is no "plug and play" option. A few people have modified an after market radio so you can use the controls.

To anyone thinking upgrading the radio. I recently purchased my 06 LT and the radio had issues, some speakers didnt work and it was difficult to seek radio stations. I purchased a Pioneer DEH-X6710BT and changed out the rear speakers to Sony 5 1/'4, 4 way's. I wasn't able to swap out the front speakers due to fact I would've had to remove more hardware... The speakers were fine anyways and sounded great.. Once the radio was installed I added a cell phone holder thats sits right above the stingray. The phone (Android) is paired via bluetooth to the radio. Whats also great Pioneer has a Free App so you control the radio directly from the phone. Plus I paired my Helmet via Sena Bluetooth so I can listen to the radio/cd or talk on my cell. I'll add some photo's later. Removing the tuperware and reinstalling wasnt as bad as I thought. Now I feel more confident to work on my own bike..
