My 99 SE is the same way.I been trying to find a different value of variable resistor to get more control over the music volume.I guess this has always been a shortcoming of the factory passenger volume control.What puzzles me is, a 99 cent potentiometer could solve the problem.(?) As electronicly inclined as our wings are, you'd think this woulda been addressed a long time ago by mother Honda. jimsjinx
I bought one from www.Cyclemaxohio.com and it works great. I bought the second one below with is just a short lead thatplugs on the end of the J&M pillion headset lead. It allows the wife to control the volume and turn off the intercomuntil she needs itresulting in no annoying wind noise. The first one below is a little more complicated and requires a little fitting whereas the second one just plugs into your lead and away you go. I bought it because I have a hearing problem and needed my volume much higher than my pillion, so now my wife has the choice of volume on her headset and I can keep mine as loud as I want.
