Hi All

Since I have the bike, I had sometimes a very light "electrical" whining in sound system. Lately it becames much stronger, and in the headset it's a pain - we have to switch it off because it's just mind-killing.

Because the sound is depending on the rpm, and it comes only from the sound system (not the engine), I think (from my old car experience) it might be the alternator.

My questions:
- Anybody had this experience (little over the speaker, strong through the headset) also already?
- What can be done against it?

I remember that 20, 30 years ago you had to install a capacitor somewhere in the car when installing a radio the first time, but I don't remember where this was. (And not an idea where this could be on a Wing.)

Thanks for your help in advance.

Usually the alternator gets a suppression cap. You can add a standard automotive noise filter most anywhere in the power line between the radio and the noise.
