2008 GL1800, honda installed, honda item 6-CD changer, bike has 2300 miles on it and CD changer is now cutting out as it plays, but never until it hits track 6 and above. Dealer tried telling me it was dust, but dust should affect every track. Unit working fine up until a week ago. In conjuction with CD display now displaying all white, or starting back up it's "Power on" sequence with the display after about 2 minutes. Wonder if computer chip is failing?
Agree Honda CD player is way overpriced and if that is the reliability I'd agree to dump it and switch to an MP3 player.
Not impressed with Honda warranty or customer service.
Anybody else having similar problems with their bikes?
There were issues with auto cd changers some years back (made by Bose) but none of my customers have opted for the CD (price usually) so I don't know if there's an issue with them lately. Component problems are a bit of a frustrating thing, Honda says it's the component maker's dime (Garmin, Panasonic, whoever) and if you talk to the maker, it's a Honda contracted thing. Argh.
