2006 GL1800 Airbag CB Radio Squeal

Some 2006 GL1800 Airbag models equipped with the optional accessory CB radio may experience
a squealing noise when transmitting. To remedy this problem, a ferrite core harness kit is now available for installation.

AFFECTED MOTORCYCLES

2006 GL1800 VIIIA (Airbag models) with optional CB Radio.

REPAIR PROCEDURE

Install a ferrite harness core kit according to the installation instructions that are packaged
with the kit.

  • The kit includes both a rider and a passenger harness; it’s necessary to install both harnesses to eliminate the squealing noise.
  • Passengers must route the headset cord as shown. If routed otherwise, it will be too
    close to the motorcycle’s antenna, which can create an interference.

IDENTIFICATION

Subharness installation can be confirmed by removing the left-side fairing pocket, and checking
to see if the harness is already installed.
