    Yes to both. I have not turned off the auto volume as yet. Figured I'd see if others have the same issue. My guess is that is the problem, though.

    Radio Auto-Volume Control on 2013 RT -

    Howdy. So I recently traded my tried and true '03 1150RT on a 2013 version - total impulse purchase. Anyway, love the bike. One issue I have is with the stereo seemingly going up and down in volume...

    P.S. - the worst part of the experience was being stranded on the side of the road waiting for the tow truck. I endured many a grin and sarcastic stare from real bikers riding Harleys! :rofl

    Yup, my bad. I did indeed confuse the ABS with the fuel pump. I even mentioned the sound to my mechanic at the dealership; I told him I had removed the tupperware and could hear a sound coming from...

    Well, I did not read the reply posts until after I was done installing a new pump. I located some posts on Adventure Rider on using a Bosch N69222 pump and a new Bosch strainer. There are some very...

    Thanks guys. I took the fuel pump in to be tested at my local dealer. It is DOA. $370 for a new pump! Ouch! It'll take a week to get a new one in.

    Disregard my question about the Hall Sensor - I researched it. Looks like a handful of work to swap it out. Any way to test it before I invest a couple of hundred bucks?

    Thanks, guys.

    Yes, the fuel pump seems to cycle and "whine" for a second or two as normal. All gauges seem to be functioning normally, as well - oil temp, fuel level, etc. Neutral light, battery...

    I had been riding for about 75 minutes (70 miles or so), mostly highway just prior to the...

    After a few hundred miles the shifting has improved - the previous 6th to 5th and 5th to 4th stiffness has not occurred again. I've had two or three instances of 3rd to 2nd shifts where the shift...

    Well, the shop called me to say first, that they found the problem but it is not under warranty; the shifter linkage was loose. So, it's costing me $95 for them to tighten a screw. I am suspicious...

    Warranty

    Playing it safe; I called the dealer that did the drive-train replacement last July and there is a two-year warranty on the work, so I'm taking the bike to them next week to give it a once-over....

    Thanks, guys. I sort of discounted the dry spline theory only because the entire drive train is literally brand new - about 8,000 miles on it now. I have read others pre-loading the shifter and have...

    Crunchy Gears?

    I'm looking for some insight. I bought an '03 RT a few months ago. The bike had about 31K on it and is in great shape. The owner had some drive train problems in 2008 and ended up having the clutch,...

    Oh, Dude! That SUCKS! I'm sorry about your misfortune. If it were me, I'd buy the correct wheel for my bike, chock it up to one-of-those-things, be thankful it wasn't worse, and get back to riding.
