I recently installed an air filter on my bike. After doing so I noticed I had no sound from my rear speakers, I checked fader on radio first .....so I was thinking I left a connector unplugged . So I took it back down to fine nothing. I call myself checking all the pins in all the connectors none of them appear to be bent and they are all plugged in tight..I ohm out the speakers their good ......now I have my bike tore down and want to fix this before I reinstall everything ..because it is a lengthy process.. If anyone has any idea I would be very thankful for the help..sometimes I plug my iPhone 4 in for music could it be that this damaged my radio internally and I am just noticing it??

Check the fader settings again Bentley, they tend to reset to factory settings (front speakers) whenever you unplug the radio.

Thanks for the help and the big welcome.....

I have went back and forth trying pluging unpluging checking fader I worked for a solid day last week before coming to forum for help....... the wiring diagram appears to show wires going from plug under radio straight to rear speakers with one connector kinda at back under seat ...... no other motorcycle in the world has this many wires...... still no luck and running out of time wanna go to district rally in week and half ....I suppose I could check for DC voltage on wires coming out of radio going to speakers..but I feel like it's somewhere else. that's not an easy tasks but then again nothing about installing an air filter on a goldwing is easy......please continue input thanks

Have you checked all the modes, AM, FM, AUX, CD, WB, XM to see if the rear speakers are out in all of them?

Need to know what year as 2006 and newer wiring for speakers comes from amplifier in rear. Older 1800 wiring comes from audio unit up front. iPhone plugged into aux has nothing to do with it.

OK, I got it, 2008 or 9, DUH. If it is not the plug, snapped in on both sides, at the audio unit, then it is possibly the amp. We have only seen one of these with the rear speaker amp IC bad and Jeff thinks the dealer that sent it in found a wire that was chaffed under the seat caused the problem.

If you are sure you had sound from the rear spkrs. before you changed the air filter , go back to the scene of the crime and recheck everything you did at that location. Check all connections you might have disturbed while changing the filter etc. Check the connections/wiring carefully , look for any green corrosion , pull on the wires etc.

Double check the wiring harness comming forward from the amplifier. it is a large cable under the seat (that was removed to get the shelter off) that comes forward between the frame & the plastic fender liner thing-ee right about where the passengers right butt cheek would sit. Good luck
