    FM radio issues on R1200RT's

    I had a '12 RT for 10000 miles before I was t-boned. The FM radio worked beautifully. I now have a '13 90 year special RT. My FM radio does not want to tune in stations. Has anyone had this issue with their radio?

    T-boned?
    I'm just glad you're even here to ask this question.

    My '13 does okay on FM. I find myself listening to Sirius more than FM, though.

    Does it still have the whip antenna? My 05 had the radio and the lead came unplugged from the radio
    I never used it as the second owner, just was showing someone who wanted to check sound quality and discovered it wouldn't find a station.

    yes, the tech has changed it with another one from another working RT. Still does it. He said that he has had other complaints about it.
