Hi,

I just bought a used Clarion Type II Radio/CB/Intercom/Cassette system for my '82 Interstate. The wiring was a little cut up but I was able to piece it back together. I hooked everything up outside of the bike to see if it worked and I have power to everything but I cannot change the radio station. The guy I bought it from did not have the handlebar controls for the radio and he was still able to change the station. The buttons are not stuck because I can still set the clock and what not. I tested the CB with my GL1500 and it does transmit. I choose not to hook up the cassette player because I don't want to loose the fairing pocket. Does anyone know why I cannot change stations and how to fix it?

Thanks,
Mike

Hi Mike. Are you saying you only have the buttons on the radio for changing the stations, and neither of them work?

That would be correct, the buttons however are not stuck because i can still set the clock with them. Everything else seems to be working except for the speakers but I can't say for sure because i haven't tuned in a station yet.

I have this same problem on my 1100 Interstate.
It's the radio-only (type 1?) with intercom but without the CB.

The buttons on the radio don't work.
Presets, memory and frequency selection.
It's stuck on 108.0 ...
Everything else works but the buttons. ..

..any hints?

It's this radio here...
Anything preventing the buttons from working?
Something I'm missing or is the radio itself needing repair.
Looking for a common problem and easy answer, I suppose.

pm to m clark

simple answer is to call sierra electronics in troy Ohio. They have an 800 number. They are the only ones who still work on these relics. They could tell you what you are asking.

Yep. You're probably right.
I don't have the key that unlocks the radio from the fairing pocket, ...so I don't know if the control head separates from the main unit and supports pinned contacts for a connection or if it's removable as a unit from the pocket...

Was hoping for something simple.
I may go into it myself.
As a trained Radioman, I, m sure I could repair any and all of it. I just don't have the time...

...the old bike has cleaned-up well.
...radio buttons, faded seat and a broken ear of the home-cut windshield are its only real issues..
