    Default Re: V1 electrical glitches on BMW

    Kudos to customer support. The engineer I was transferred to did not treat me like an idiot, did not read from a script, and came up with a final diagnostic trick which I have yet to try (I have already swapped cords, replaced the Remote Audio Adapter, tried the whole setup in my car, and moved the wiring physically as far away from interference sources as possible). He suggested powering the setup from another 12v source independent of the bike to determine if the problem is radiated interference or is coming right in through the bike's 12v system.

    He said V puts a 1 microfarad cap across the +/- feed in the hardwire adapter, which should catch stuff like alternator whine, but this test should help isolate the source a bit more.

    He also said that if garbage is getting into the muting data circuit it can cause behavior such as I describe, but won't hurt anything else, including V1 sensitivity.

    What a nice contrast to most customer service calls I've endured in recent years.

    I used RAA on a '92 Concours and had no problems. Of course little electronics to interfer with the V1. Similar with 2000 Ducati ST4 and now Suzuki SV650. The SV has LCD and FI along with occasionally wearing hi-viz yellow with reflective patch on chest and never had a problem with V1 connected to battery. My V1 is mounted ontop of brake reservoir.

    My last experiment "proved" that the key is to get the RAA itself as far away from heat & electrical noise. I had it under the fairing in a baggie and it finally refused to come out of mute mode at all until I mounted it next to the V1 on the bars, where it works 100 percent the way it's supposed to.

    Had to install a noise filter on my power wires for the Zr4. Emi from the coil packs would reek havoc on the system. Powering HID headlamps would sometimes cause falsing. Also, I know several people who's systems are affected by using the horn. The noise filter reduced falsing substantially. A coil may also work for you. I may start a separate thread about this issue to see how many people are affected and find different solutions.

    That would be very helpful ... Im having an issue with falsing with my LIs on the BMW. I switched the cpus with the much earlier version on my Yamaha and now both systems appear to be happy.
