whine on the aux. circuit

Took my new (to me) 2008 Goldwing out for a "shakedown" ride today, and when I plugged my iPod into the auxiliary cord and tried to listen got this really obnoxious whine that changed pitch with the engine rpms. Any ideas how to get rid of it? I'd really like to listen to my own music, but surely can't do it now with that whine in my ears! Sure would appreciate any help!!

I believe you need a ground loop isolator. I had the same when I plugged in my Sena SM10 the first time. A cheap isolator cured it.

Does the whine go away if the phone is disconnected from the bikes power ? If yes, most likely , than you need a ground loop isolator as stated. If not than it might be the bikes ground loop isolator. But the 2010 and older non airbag model always had some whine when the cruise control was engaged.

Go to the dealer and purchase the alternator filter. It has two connectors to plug in series with original plug. Takes 10 minutes to install.

They come when you purchase a CB.

It's not the destination, but the getting there.
