I purchased my RX65 from an authorized dealer and it arrived on June 7; date code 1007. After seven weeks, while not "brand new," it's still quite new.
So far it's been on five day trips with my Kawasaki Z1000 riding the handle bar on a trusty 20-year-old Slip Streamer mount. A wire runs from the RD to a little speaker in my helmet.
I've had it in my S-10 a few times but mostly for play: living smack in the middle of the 5th largest city in the US makes busting the PSL impossible or stupid. The RD is wired into my audio system.
I mention the helmet speaker and audio system because it was just yesterday that I noticed at some point in time the RD's speaker went dead! Working fine when I got it, I have no idea when it decided to break.
I haven't dropped it or abused it in any way.
While in my two applications, the audio output is OK, the dead speaker severely limits my RX65's portability.
So, now it needs to go back for repair having barely been put into service.
