Sorry Wingleader, I can't find anything on the web maual for the CB. There must be a diagnostic port for a dealer to hook into with the laptop, but I don't have any idea without some kind of instructions, darn service manual only shows the basic audio system.:(

I found this explaination on another forum. Don't know if it is your problem, but may be.

***************************************************
Anything can flip out with a low battery voltage. You can't troubleshoot any system or place blame without knowing that your supply voltage is ok. The CB isn't any more susceptible to the problem than any other piece of electronics.

The CB Error is a message generated by the microprocessor in the radio, not the CB. It means that the radio has lost communications with the CB while the CB function was active. This can be either because the CB lost power, or the communications line was lost.

The most common cause for the error is a bad/dirty connection in one of the two CB connectors, either the power connector under the seat, or the large white connector up near the radio. It can also be caused by bad connections on one of the two connectors that plug in under the seat.

I don't know how long the radio has to lose communications for the error to pop up. But when cranking, battery voltage typically drops down to about 9.5 volts give or take. 10 seconds of cranking is not normal, and may be enough to cause the radio to throw out a CB error message.

The CB certainly is capable of causing this if it is bad, and so is the radio. But with an intermittent problem, I would bet on something external in the bike's wiring as the culprit.

Remember that even though dirty or oxidized connectors is by far the most common cause for intermittent connections, it is also a very real possibility that a crimp on a connector pin has gone bad, or something similar. When problems get deep like this, coupled with being intermittent, they can be very difficult to locate. We can only help you with the common causes. Once those solutions have been exhausted, you can no longer troubleshoot over the Internet. A knowledgeable technician has to be at the bike.
