I am looking for someone in the Florida area with a working CB for a GL1200, I have one on my bike that I am trying to figure out what is wrong with it. Sometimes it works fine and sometimes it is locked up and will not change channels, transmit or receive. If you are in the Florida area and can help me pin down which part on mine is acting up, please PM me. Thanks

If you don't find what you need, you can contact

and have them repair it for you.

They have an excellent reputation on the forum here.

I am trying to pin down wither it is the head unit or the transceiver, that way I know which piece to send out for repair. I have gotten it down to those two units.

I would suggest either go on there site and email them with your question, or call them and ask if it's better to send both peices or just the one you think is not working. Maybe the price would be the same for both or just one. Good Luck. :)

If you are talking about the CB it is all contained in the unit. There are not any other compents to it.



However it sounds like your handlebar switch. If you can't change channels that would be my first check. These gum up over time with the grease they put in them. You can start by spraying some contact cleaner in the switch, but I had to crack mine apart and clean with a brush and solvent. Then I glued it back together. Works like new now.



You can test the switch with a Ohm meter to see if it is working.



After that I would check all the other connections to make sure they are clean.



After that if you are still having issues with channels and transmit You will most likely need to send in the CB.
