Has anyone had a problem with severe static in their intercoms? This is an intermittant problem that comes and goes at will. The bike is a 2000 SE with factory radio, CB and intercom system. I have checked all the connections, wiring and componets that I can find. I have talked to Sierra Electronics to see if they could shed some light on the subject. The only way you can get rid of it when it starts is to turn off both the CB and the intercom. If you turn off just one it won't go away. It is not controllable with either the squelch or the volume controls. The noise intensity ranges from a moderate background noise to a loud crackling noise. Please HELP. This is making me consider selling this bike.:( Thanks, 51baby

Thank you for the quick reply. I have checked the radio ground and connections (I removed the radio to physically check pins etc). I have not checked the alternator, but will as soon as the temp rises above freezing. This cold weather is hard to work in.
Thanks again, 51baby
