My '81 Interstate has the (original?) Clarion AM/FM radio/intercom unit. After riding with the external speakers on for about 10-20 minutes, the radio cuts in/out a couple times, then goes completely off - no display no LEDs no sound. After 'letting it cool' for 1/2 hr or so it comes back on. What could be going on? It started doing this about a week ago. No other apparent electrical problems with the bike.

Thanks!

If the whole thing including the display cuts out then it sounds like the control panel has a bad solder joint heating up, or some other internal problem. Also it might be an idea to clean up the contacts where it plugs in.
