Trouble shooting the CB is not an exact science. All any of us can do is guess. It is not discussed in the manual, and I myself certainly am not a radio or electronics type person.
You can take the ground strap off the inside where the antenna bolts to the trunk and clean it. Put a star washer there too if you want.
Most likely though it is a pin connector. Not making contact as some point . You have to check past them each wire for continuity with a meter to rule out if they are making contact or not.
A bad unit will also give you this error message. So all you can do is make sure you have power, continuity through all the wires, good connections and good ground. If you have all that, then it is the unit.
The 1800 is my bike. The very best motorcycle ever made. I was enthralled with my first test ride on this machine. It is a great bike.
