Seeing as I have about 5 times as many posts as you:D
Take this with a lot of doubt. On my '86 Aspencade, I use the key to "unlock" it and it just slides right out. Of course mine has the cassette player also---now where would I find any cassette tapes?---anyway, try it out. Mine has not been run in more than 6 years, nor does it have a battery in it. I have never ridden on this style of bike so I may be leading you wrong???

86GW1200 is right, the key should unlock the radio and it should pull straight out. It might even start working after you pull it out and reinstall it a couple times. The contacts just might be dirty.

There should be a fuse for the radio. The fuse panel is located on top of the air cleaner.

Actually the radio/casette fuse are under the left fairing pocket (you need to take the tray out to access them, about 8 Phillips screws if memory serves). The back-up supply is a 7.5a and the radio/cassette unit itself takes a 20a. They are each in a fuse holder on the right side towards you as you look at it from the seat. There is no information that I found as to removal of the radio head unit (?!*) in the service manual but the old Type III units on the left (1100A) of the fairing panels did come out with the ignition key. My 1200 was an Interstate so I had an aftermarket system on it; don't know about the 1200 Aspy radio from first hand, sorry.

key was the trick but re-installed 3 times no luck...


gonna check fuses tomorrow...... also the guy removed the air pump system and installed a fill valve for rear only. he tore out the front lines to forks and didnt plug the holes. When riding it "swooshes" air out those holes. any one know the 2 different size threads or bolts to plug the holes on the steering triple tree.. one size for the crossover line holes and the inlet hole is different.

didnt realize there is a seperate amp for the radio. Im thinking maybe thats bad instead since i have NO power at radio. I know where it is just need to know if key can be on acc position to check voltages.

Also does anyone know which connector and pin is power to the radio deck at amp.?

also which pin on the slide mechanism is power to the deck??

good ground or ground wire color?
